Accuracy of the map:

It is created on materials of maps of natural scale 1:5 000 000 - 1:80 000 000 and on literature data


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area is shown by polygons (basic distribution) and by points (sporadic distribution). Zone of harmfulness is shown by polygons

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within weed area the zones of basic and sporadic distribution are shown, and the zone of harmfulness, where Melandrium album is a pernicious weed

Procedure of map drawing:

Areas of basic distribution, sporadic distribution and harmfulness are established according to the analysis of the open-published maps and literature. The area of Melandrium album is based on the maps from Hulten E., Fries M. (1986) and Volkov A.N. (1935). Limits of the zone of harmfulness are established according to Nikitin V.V. (1983) and adjusted with the limits of arable lands.
