Climate protection is worldwide meant as an action plan containing efforts to stop or limit the climate change of the Earth. This action plan is therefore sensitive for the climatic features, like temperature, concentration of the gases, vapor or dust in the Earth atmosphere. The climate change mitigation is only then successful, if the actors (agents) work in a harmonized manner using the most effective instrumentation. The theory and practice of the geographic information system (GIS) has quite enough proof to be a possible partner in this effort. The current paper wants to demonstrate the general understandings of GIS and tries to point out on the climatic application.
