This study deals with a GIS-based morphostructural analysis applied to a digital terrain model of the Bodva River basin in the area of the Slovak karst. The specifics of this study area were that it is partially formed by karst plateaux. Methods such as derivation and analysis of a stream network, construction of base-level maps (or isobase surfaces) and construction of a morphological (or in this case morphostructural) network were used. Obviously, it was necessary to take into account the correlation between the karst surface (mostly its geological structure) and its stream network. Thus, derivation of the stream network with regard to local geological conditions provided better outcomes and following of changes in the base-level maps. The findings of the presented methods can be used as supporting arguments for better understanding of the morphostructures and morphostructural evolution of the study area. As a result, important morphostructures within the study area were identified. We tried to support the assumption of a differential uplift of individual karst plateaux and connected uplift of the northern part of the Slovak karst together with the adjacent Slovenské rudohorie Mountains, system was also applied to orientation of the interpreted morphostructural networks and thereby we tried to determine the dominant directions of the activity of the morphotectonic field.
