Abstract

The study of the vegetation cover is important during the study of geosystems because the nature and distribution of vegetation represent many components of geosystems. This paper presents the process of drawing up the vegetation map of the central part of the Tigirek ridge based on field data obtained in July 2015 and satellite imagery. Compiled vegetation map at a scale of 1:50 000 showing the spatial distribution of the vegetation of the territory; basic regularities of the spatial structure of vegetation were revealed.

Keywords

vegetation mapping, geographical interpretation of satellite images, West Altay.
