Abstract

GIS is closely related to mathematical cartographic modeling, as they work with spatially coordinated data. geoinformation technologies used to study the spatio-temporal structure, connections and dynamics of geosystems are mainly based on the methods of cartographic analysis and mathematical-cartographic modeling.

The purpose of mastering the discipline “Mathematical and cartographic modeling” is to form students’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of mathematical and cartographic modeling, the acquisition of general and special knowledge by students, as well as practical skills in constructing thematic content of maps based on modern computer and geoinformation technologies. The course must meet the requirements of the time and assume the use of modern gIS technologies when performing practical tasks. When studying the discipline, students get acquainted with the place and role of mathematical and cartographic modeling in the structures of geographic information systems, acquire skills in working with various sources of spatial information, independently systematize and analyze data. The functionality of GIS packages allows you to construct thematic content of maps based on the analysis of spatial data and geoinformation modeling. Some mathematical and cartographic models are created easily and simply, the construction of individual models requires the development of additional scripts, programs, etc. The acquisition by students of practical skills in constructing thematic content of maps based on modern computer and geoinformation technologies should be accompanied by the formation of ideas about the mathematical methods used, knowledge of how a particular tool works.

This article is devoted to researching the possibilities of using GIS technologies in the practical course of mathematical and cartographic modeling. The main attention is paid to the construction of models of the structure of the spatial characteristics of geographic phenomena.

Keywords

GIS-technologies, competence, mathematical and cartographic modeling, training.
