Abstract

The paper discusses two maps for higher education, scale 1:4 000 000, of the extraction industrial sectors of Russia, closely related to export: metallurgy, oil, and gas. Reproduction of printed wall maps of such a scale is rather expensive. Creation of digital maps (DM) based on existing data bases, which can be viewed on computer monitors, is more feasible. The maps can be saved in electronic vector or raster formats and be used by students in individual studies of industrial-geography. The maps can be also placed on Internet or Intranet for the benefit of all interested users. The paper describes preparation of such maps compiled initially in a vector format, which allows, if necessary, printing them from digital files.

Keywords

digital maps for higher education, extraction industrial sectors.
