The problems and directions of the formation of a system of information support for recreational and tourist activities are considered. The issues of the development of the scientific basis, the use of the principles of information logistics and the development of cadastres in the system of recreational and tourist economy and nature management are discussed.
The most important component of the policy of reforming the national economy is the all-round development of competitive sectors of the national economy, which is especially emphasized in the "Strategy of economic and social policy of Ukraine for 2000-2004" . Among the industries that potentially have prospects of high competitiveness in the domestic and foreign markets is the resort and recreational and tourism industries. Ukraine has a large resort, recreational and tourist potential, which, with appropriate organization of the considered sphere of economic activity, can be very attractive for external and internal investors .
The development of the resort, recreational and tourist complex fully meets the regional and national strategy of economic and social development for the coming years. This is primarily due to the fact that this complex most effectively provides a solution to the tasks of increasing jobs and reducing unemployment in the regions, raising the socio-economic standard of living of the population, and replenishing the deficit of the local and state budget. Active recreational and tourist activities are an important factor in the development of cross-border cooperation, expansion and deepening of economic and cultural integration of the regions of Ukraine and Ukraine in general with other countries .
An important condition for the formation and sustainable development of the recreational and tourist complex (RTC) is the creation of an effective information system for all links in the functioning of the RTC. As the world experience in the development and implementation of new information technologies shows, the greatest socio-economic effect of their implementation is noted in the field of tourism business .
One of the important areas of informatization of recreational and tourist activities is the creation of an integrated database on the quantitative, qualitative and dynamic (retrospective and prospective) state, on the relationship of resource potential and RTK systems, on the needs for the existing and projected development of resort -recreational and tourist economy and nature management.
The general system of information support in the field of recreational and tourist activities, including theoretical and applied databases, in our opinion, can be schematically represented in the form of a diagram shown in Figure 1.

In the general system of development of directions of informatization of recreational and tourist activities (RTD) in this work, we consider it justified to pay special attention to the following areas of informatization of RTD and RTK:
- formation of a new scientific direction of recreational resource science; - using the principles of information logistics for a systematic presentation of the organization of recreational and tourist activities and its information support; - determination of directions for the development of a recreational and tourist cadastre as a systematized set of information data, including a quantitative and qualitative assessment of natural, natural-economic and other objects or processes and phenomena, in some cases, taking into account economic, environmental and socio-economic assessments .
