The management of urban and community space requires decisions and measures that deliver economic and financial stability, guarantee the safe use of public property (including technical infrastructure devices), prevent deterioration of property, support investments and other types of activity. Spatial management should not be regarded as an isolated process, but as an activity that accounts for all aspects of the surrounding space. One of the elements that undergo spatial management are technical infrastructure networks (TIN). The aim of this study is to discuss the applicability of GIS tools and industrial databases for the management of technical infrastructure (water supply system) in emergency situations. A case study was conducted in the town and municipality of Gniew where cartographic analyses were performed to determine the geographic range that could be affected by a failure of the water supply system. The results indicate that industrial databases support effective management of technical infrastructure, facilitate the identification of the most exploited and damage-prone sections of the water supply system and the identification of infrastructure needs. Our findings provide a valuable insight into infrastructure management for local governments and organizations.

Keywords: road pavement, pavement strength, Eo industrial database; geographic information system (GIS); water supply.
