The paper analyzes the achievements of thematic cartography and geo-information in solving the problems of natural-resources management and environmental protection in the Baikal Region. A plan of cartographic support is suggested for sustainable regional-development management on the basis of specialized information systems containing the data on natural resources and the state of the environment. The unique nature and efficiency of such information systems are achieved by a cartographic form of information and efficient opportunities of up-to-date information technologies. Thematic maps in these systems are the main means of geographical data interpretation and organization. The necessity of establishing a regional cartographic geo-information center is recognized.
