THE TOPICALITY OF GEONOMY
Elemér Szádeczky-Kardoss realized that the entire material and spiritual culture of mankind constitutes an interconnected system, which he named geonomy. He established environmental science, identifying the need for network research. With the use of geographic information systems (GIS), IT technology expands the possibilities of recognizing, interpreting, and examining transdisciplinary connections in their dynamic relationships in many areas. The starting point of environmental modeling is the fact that the processes to be studied take place in a common space – in the field of interpretation of the earth sciences this is the landscape, the space in which the natural, social and economic processes take place, so the study of sustainability is a spatial, multi-faceted decision-making task. We need to reconcile the goals of population preservation and of production with social, cultural and environmental stabilization and nature conservation tasks. The map-based decision support we pro- pose provides the exact possibility of multi-aspect decisions in a complex, spatial system. The key to solving this problem is the grouping of the “Big Data” data set, the structuring of the data groups and then the harmonization of the data layers.
