Accuracy of map:

It is created on information taken from the map of scale 1:33 000 000.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map is composed of 4 thematic layers. Zones of distribution and severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

The WSMV area is divided into three zones of severity according with published materials (Vlasova, Larina, 1982). In the zone of high severity, the disease distribution on wheat is 20-40% or higher. In the zone of moderate severity, epiphytoties are marked every 7-10 years. In the zone of low severity, the disease development does not exceed 5%.

Method of map production:

The area and severity zones have been marked on a blank map by results of the analysis of the published materials. The zone of high severity includes the Middle Asian Republics, North Caucasus, and Tatarstan. The zone of moderate severity includes Moldova, Ukraine, Volga Basin Region, and Voronezh Region. The zone of low damage is marked within the rest territory of area (the severity does not exceed 10%) (Dubonosov et all., 1975; Panarin, 1985; Razvyazkina & Gorbunova, 1965; Tsyplenkov, 1999). The vector map of the largest arable land distribution within the territory of the Former Soviet Union has been also used for the correction of severity zones (Koroleva et al., 2003).
