Cartographic Approach in Studying Landscape Morphology and Dynamics in Northwestern Part of Western Siberia

The structure and dynamics of geosystems: plants of forest and bogs in the northwestern part of Western Siberia are studied using the Kazym-Lyamin interfluve, which is based on a landscape assessment map for the middle part of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District. The landscape structural-dynamical approach and methods for studying the spatio-temporal dynamics of taiga geosystems were used in this study. The development of a landscape assessment map for Asian Russia is high on the cartographic agenda of the V. B. Sochava Institute of Geography SB RAS. Landsat-5 TM and the Hansen mosaic will be used in GIS MultiS-pec and Qgis for the methodical research. A topographic, geomorphologic, and forest analysis is also performed. 1:200,000 maps, profiles characterizing lithology, field data of geobotanical and soil descriptions, and experimental permanent station operations The technique and results of studying the landscape structure of the north-west of Western Siberia on the basis of the Hansen mosaic dataset, which contains elements covering the entire Earth’s surface, are presented. The map legend depicts the landscape structure of this area and its hierarchical subordination in terms of groups of facies that are combined into regional-typological classification units: groups of geoms, classes, and types of natural environment. Landscape mapping and planning will aid in the timely prevention and forecasting of the magnitudes of disturbances to the natural environment, and will serve as the foundation for a package of optimal nature-conservation measures as well as target-oriented technogenic and anthropogenic impacts.
