ABSTRACT
Along the paper we used spatial characteristics of land water resources using cultural landscape philosophy. The study was done for the Msciwojów water reservoir area in Sudety mountains in Poland. Some chosen GIS methodology, in our case Arc Hydro Tools 9.0 was used to run the analyze. Along the study we concentrated on tho rivers and two catchments: the Wierzbiak and the Kałużnik rivers. Topographic Topographic Wetness Index (TWI) was used to show of spatial distribution of water resources. We found that highest values of TWI are located at the bottom of river valleys and along slopes of land and in concave forms of areas. At the same time lowest values of TWI are occurred in an areas which are adjacent to the convex forms.
