Abstract

Regions landscape mapping continues to be the most important task of modern geography. In recent decades, this direction extensive use GIS technologies. Conducting similar studies in the central part of the landscape of the Volga Delta due to a number of reasons. There are complexity of the landscape structure of the region, the lack of modern mapping data. The paper presents a brief physical and geographical (landscape) characteristics of the studied region. The question about the lack automatically detect process the boundaries of the natural territorial complexes (NTCs) is examined. More than twenty basic units of landscape mapping of territory—types of tracts are presented, the brief description of some of them is given. The prerequisites for the design and development of the resource with a catalog of spectral graphs of NTCs of the Central part of the Volga Delta is considered. Spectrometry of both individual nature elements and nature components, and natural territorial complexes as a whole becomes one of new directions of research of the nature. Application of spectral catalogs of reference NTCs of the Central part of the Volga Delta is promising both for solving scientific and applied problems.

One of the topical problem of geography is retrospective analysis of structural and functional features of natural (“restored”) landscapes. But despite the progress made in the field of small-scale landscape mapping, the problem of availability of medium- and large-scale mapping data for the regions of Russia remains unresolved. The current situation makes it impossible to carry out a retrospective analysis of the structural and functional characteristics of natural (“restored”) landscapes, to study th e dynamics and transformation of geosystems under the influence of both natural and anthropogenic factors. The absence of medium- and large-scale landscape maps on the territory of the Central part of the Volga Delta makes the work relevant.

Keywords
