Date of creation:


1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

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


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Zones of distribution and damage are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

In the area limits, the zone of high pest damage is indicated where significant damages of cruciferous crops are registered periodically.

Procedure of map drawing:

The area E. oleracea and its damage zone are shown according to the map from the article of Shapiro (1951) with corrections and additions made by results of the analysis of some other publications without cartographic materials (Kirichenko, 1951; Puchkov, 1961; Bey-Bienko et al., 1972; Vasiljev, 1973). Vectorization of scanned map is made by standard methods of GIS technologies.
