Modern geography considers the elements of space in their complicated interaction. All types of space are overlapped, forming zones with different degree of stability (social-economical situations - SES). SES with different scales always follow a society's life and under certain conditions are able to alter its spatial configuration. There exist two concepts to explain the processes of spatial-temporal localization of geosituations (Thisse,1996): the equilibrium concept and the external concept. Social-economical space is formed in the struggle of this contrary factors. The geosituational conception (SES), which we suggest, explains the spatial-temporal structure by means of the analysis of socio-ecologo-economical situations. The situations are movable formations. They are easy for alterations than stable geosystems. Thus the geosituational concept is the governing aspect of the environment modelling. The analysis of socio-ecologo-economical situations may be a primary weighty reason to make governing decision.
