Information in 21st century represents power, and with that, safest and most legitimate "machine for dominating". Consequences from the rapid growth of information technologies and their usage for solving of crisis situation make information one of the key concepts of the unconventional warfare. Application of GIS (Geographical Information System) in the Army and crisis response for getting information is wide used all over the world, but this paper gives an overview and make particular ideas for further development in usage of GIS for geo-reconnaissance and dialling with crisis. The main aim is getting specific information about objects, buildings and devices on the affected area through geo-location and plots field data (various digital, video images), further management and planning strategies for ensuring proper security, and also in other way, getting information from the intelligence services for planning routes of movement, all that based on the information from the GIS. Geographic information system is recognized as a useful system for alleviation the risk during the crisis management we develop the idea to promote a new model to have a practical and applicable method of GIS adoption within the crisis management in order to save as many lives as it can be done military reconnaissance, helping in the military decision making process. In this paper, despite the overview of GIS usage for geo-reconnaissance in army and crisis response, is presented an application for the soldiers and crisis teams on the ground for live streaming (drones and video camera) and live processing of the decisions from their commands, getting real time track log with moving map (through a GPS signal), which displays their current coordinate location, and their heading directions given by their crisis headquarters.
