Abstract. The identification of the Helicopter Landing Sites (HLS) needs complex analysis of the terrain considering a lot of aspects. One of the unconditional aspects in this case is the slope of ground, therefore the HLS identification depending on slope, landing site dimension and shape was conducted. This paper describes the development of the tool for the HLS identification depending only on the relief, but no other objects on the earth’s surface. At the end of the paper, the possible improvements of the tools are stated.
