Abstract At present, the Geographic Information System (GIS) is one of the tools for obtaining detailed information about the condition of agricultural land with reference to its geographical position. The correct operation of GIS requires a database of objects (electronic charts) containing reliable, up-to-date information. The requirements and procedures of GIS data updating differ for various agricultural sectors. In some cases, the correction of chart databases has to be made within the shortest possible time. In other cases, a permanent, regular monitoring and updating of information in the long term are required. In addition to that, in emergencies, a combination of both above-mentioned approaches is applied. The article proposes the method, equipment and algorithm for making it possible to quickly correct the GIS data based on the results of controlling the flooding of agricultural land with the help of remotely piloted aircrafts. The article analyses the advantages of applying a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) with a system of automated cartographic information collection for creating charts of flooded areas, quick correction of these charts and monitoring the situation in real-time mode in cases when flood hazard has been announced. As a result, time and material costs can be minimized.
