In our research we focused on the ecological network and its flaws alongside the Tisza river. For defining these deficiencies, we analyzed the available databases, evaluated the different territorial protected environmental resources and collected data about the protected areas along the river. Taking all this information into account we compared our results with the already existing National Ecological Network, assigning its deficiency. Our goal was to identify a manageable frame of regional scale of ecological network and to create a network that contains all the categories listed above while preserving its original purpose. To achieve this, we compared our GIS based results to the already existing network categories of the river.
