The methodological basis of the study consists of provisions of the systemic and situational approach and system analysis, scientific methods: the ascent from the general to the particular, the unity of logical and historical, analysis and synthesis of economic and statistical methods. The study applies the methods of institutional analysis, information modeling methods and approaches used in the design of databases, knowledge bases and information systems. The pilot study proved the feasibility of the development of the information system of the Baikal natural territory, specified the main information resources in the region and highlighted the main problems currently existing in data provision of the territory.
