Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of map:

It is created on materials of maps of natural scale 1: 33 000 000.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. It consists of one layer characterizing the disease distribution on wheat.

Accuracy of the classifier:

The zone of Rye Bunt distribution coinciding with regions of rye cultivation is shown on the map.

Procedure of map drawing:

The zone of distribution is identified by results of the analysis of the published data on fungus distribution (Karatyghin, 1986; Ishkova et al., 2002; Levitin & Tuterev, 2003). The zone of severety is not marked as the real level of severity depends mainly on maintenance of preventive measures, i.e., seeds treatment rather than on climatic conditions (Anon., 1999; Levitin & Tuterev, 2003). The blank map with image of the disease distribution zone has been scanned. Registration and vectoring of its raster copy have been fulfilled by standard facilities of GIS-technologies.
