The informal settlements, townships, temporary camps and other human posts need at least basic services such as potable water, electricity and sanitation. Other services such as food supply, medical aid and shelters are usually arranged in case of disasters and large human migrations. A proper and efficient services need should be well estimated and simply implemented. All requirements can be achieved as results of evaluation with use of the geo information decision support system GDSS, suggesting services sorts and quantities. A core data of the system can be obtained with the use of the emergency mapping technology which combines the latest computer techniques and simple methods operated by local people what effects in educational needs and jobs creation.
