Object specialist - N.N.Luneva, GIS-specialist - I.A. Budrevskaya.

Data of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of the map:

Created using materials from the literature.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of distribution is shown by polygon (basic distribution). Zones of weediness are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Area of distribution, which coincides with the zone of harmfulness, is established according to the analysis of the open-published literature given below.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including Atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist together with the GIS specialist, drew a composite weed distribution area based on compiled data.
