GIS based buffer analysis methods were applied for analysing spatial distribution and density of dolinas in the NW part of Velika Kapela. Results extracted from existing spatial databases indicated spatial distribution of faults, as well as a degree of relationship between direction and density of dolinas with identified lineaments. By comparing faults identified from dolina analysis, with faults identified during on-situ mapping, major tectonic blocks or units within researched area were identified. Bigger regional and local faults identified from digital elevation model are dividing larger tectonic units, while smaller local faults derived from linearly developed dolina are mostly dividing smaller tectonic blocks and can indicate their degree of faultness and deformities.
