Abstract: The elaboration new products based on advanced technologies (using Geographical Information Systems), studies related to environmental componentsí estimation, is going to be a prospective direction in geographic research. Increasing frequency and intensity of natural hazards in recent decades, have oriented research towards highlighting the vulnerability of the territory of the Republic of Moldova as a result of natural risk factors manifestation (weather and climate-related, geomorphological, hydrological risks, etc.), the risks conditioned by the current environmental changes, including climate change. Anthropogenic pressure on environment through urbanization, incorrect land use, also massive deforestation, etc. - determines the estimation of regionís exposure to anthropogenic risk factors. Digital maps that reflect natural and anthropogenic abovementioned risk factors will be the background for elaboration the digital Atlas of Natural and anthropogenic Risk factors .
