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

Basic contents:

Vector map. It consists of one layer characterizing the Choke Disease distribution on wheat. The disease focus is presented by polygon.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Zone where the Choke Disease was registered on wheat is allocated by results of the analysis of open published materials.

Procedure of map drawing:

Locality of the only revealed Choke Disease focus was determined by result of analysis of local publications. Definition of the disease distribution was carried out on vector layer of wheat growing regions. The blank map with outlines of area was scanned. Registration and vectoring of raster map were performed by standard tools of current GIS-tecnologies.
