We obtain a complete characterization of linear operators that preserve strong majorization on (0,1)-matrices. To do this we introduce a new matrix invariant of combinatorial nature. We call this invariant an intersection index of a matrix and develop a method to characterize the matrix maps based on the analysis of its properties.
