Date of creation:



1: 20 000 000

Accuracy of map:

Map was created based on information taken from map of scale 1: 33 000 000.


"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution and zones of disease severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

We were unable to allocate zones of disease severity based on available data.

Method of map production:

Scientists were given maps with boundaries of Oblasts and arable lands. After reviewing historic literature, species distribution was hand drawn on maps. Hand drawn maps were scanned, georeferenced and vectorized. Records of the Powdery Mildew of Soybean show it to be found in the southern areas of the Ukraine, the Northern Caucasus and the Far East. However available data do not allow us to allocate zones of severity.
