The paper describes the creation and use of a geoinformation system (GIS) for long-term monitoring of agricultural development of a territory using the Lake Baikal basin as an example. The functional structure of GIS consists of measuring, information, technological, and analytical subsystems. The analysis results of retrospective maps as the main documents for the long-term metric assessment of the nature use dynamics are given. A technique for geometric correction of the retrospective maps on the modern topographic basis is described. A methodology for creating and using cartographic information resources for environmental monitoring is developed. A practical example of monitoring results in the form of a map of the arable land dynamics in the XX century is presented.
