Geomorphodiversity is a critical and specific assessment of geomorphological features of a territory. The AA. characterize the geomorphodiversity of the Czech Republic that is situated in Central Europe in the complex contact zone of the old West-European Platform and the young Carpathians Mountains. The results of the research project carried out by the AA. in the frame of publication of a digital Landscape Atlas of the Czech Republic in 2009 are the digital geomorphological information system (geomorphological data-base) and GIS-based geomorphological map of the Czech Republic. The content of the paper is a computer supported quantitative evaluation of the geomorphodiversity of the territory using the geomorphological data-base of above mentioned GIS-based geomorphological map
