Revitalisation means the process of spatial, technical, social and economic changes taken in the public interest. The Municipal Council accepts the revitalisation programme by resolution. That includes, among other things, a detailed diagnosis of the revitalisation area, including analyses of negative phenomena and local potentials occurring on the area. Multi-criteria GIS analysis is a method that can have various uses. It can be used, for example, for classifying areas that meet certain criteria, meaning that it can be used in the revitalisation of space. If the criteria are indicators of urban revitalisation, used to create municipal revitalisation programmes, then use of the method can greatly facilitate and improve classifying areas for revitalisation. An additional attribute of the GIS software is the ability to visualise the results. The authors of this article present the results of studies on a local revitalisation program of the City of Olsztyn, as an example.
