Description Users have the tendency to consider computer-generated maps as correct and uniquely identifying a given phenomenon. This study has an ambition to promote the natural critical thinking and to refine the decision making supported by GIS applications. The critical and spatial thinking is indispensable especially in natural risk management. The basic facts are linked to the project GeoRISK: Geo-analysis of landscape level degradation and natural risks formation. Project is trying to confirm the dependence of high level landscape degradation and propensity to natural risks emergence. This multidisciplinary approach is applied to model catchments with different natural conditions in the Czech Republic. Furthermore there were designed possible multidimensional (multiple kinds of uncertainty) representation of uncertainty.
