As a result of aforementioned relationship is different island's social reality in summer and winter seasons. Contemporary island's socio-spatial implications are deriving from the interaction of three social groups: permanent island population, secondary residents and tourists. Usage of modern GIS methods and spatial analysis considering the spatial distribution and relationship of targeted groups have generated with the sociological patterns on seasonal level. The most intense spatial interactions are expected for summer period, when some islands in general are counting excessive number of tourists and secondary residents than permanent island population. That implies a range of negative environmental threats on island's system. Thus, in this paper are discussed the sustainability of physical infrastructure and its carrying capacity utilizing multivariate GIS methods in the frame of tourist and other types of seasonality.
