Common architecture of the distributed system for geospatial data processing and visualisation designed for environment and disaster monitoring is considered. In particular, automated processing support of the radar data ENVISAT/ASAR and informational technologies for flooded area estimation have been realised in the infrastructure. The results were obtained within the scientific-technical project of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, which was supported by the international program UN-SPIDER, and NASA Space Agency.
