GIS-project “World experience in site investigation and construction under different engineering-geological conditions” includes numerous data on engineering objects (engineering structures), and contains more than 20 layers divided into three blocks. Base layers include geographical and geological maps of the World and Russia, forming the first block of information. Map of engineering-geological structures of the Earth is the second block, it consists of 8 layers. The intersection of these layers gives taxonomic units of engineering-geological zoning of the four hierarchical levels. Engineering objects (buildings, dams, reservoirs, bridges, tunnels, etc.) form the third block. Attributive table contains data on every object and on its engineering-geological conditions: relief, composition and properties of foundation rocks, underground water, geological processes, the difficulties that arise upon construction, as well as the source data. This GIS-project can be used as a reference database and in educational activity.
