Geographical data processing using Geographical Information Systems on single processor computer is going to be very difficult in consideration of constantly growing amount of data. In the recent years there is a trend of operation of those systems on parallel computers, which brings an effect mainly in the area of their performance. This article deals with possibilities of shortening of time demanded for mathematically exacting process of both analysis and visualization of variety of geographical data using parallel architectures. It focuses on some methods of geographical data processing as well as on types of parallel computing systems, together with description of their practical application to the environment of Geographical Information Systems.
