Industrial air pollution is still one of the biggest environmental problems in Slovenia. To monitor air pollution, automated environmental information systems were built. These are complex computerized networks that couple automated measuring techniques and information technology. A typical environmental information system is described. Guidelines are given for the strategy of air pollution monitoring in complex terrain, attempting to find a balance between costs, the available funds and system performances desired. In the paper a strategy for achieving desired system performances is described. The most important parameters are measuring accuracy, reliability and maintenance simplicity. In complex terrain an environmental information system cannot cover the whole domain. Appropriate dispersion models should be added to the system to reconstruct the whole movement of the pollutant plume and to estimate its harmful effects in regions without measurements.
