The paper presents an intelligent GIS architecture that enables us to extend GIS functionality by using domain specific knowledge and inference engine. In this architecture, an intelligent agent monitors events, which occur in the GIS environment, and execute tasks depending on user's actions. The intelligent agent includes an expert system shell and knowledge base. A hybrid knowledge representation method is used that integrates rule-based, object-oriented, and procedural knowledge representations.
