Abstract

Nowadays there is a lot of information about species composition, distribution and abundance of terrestrial vertebrates in the Perm Territory in different literature and departmental papers. Consolidation of data by creating the theme geodatabase and zoogeographical maps helps not only imagine the structure and distribution of vertebrates on the territory but also identify the main patterns of their habitat. There are some principles of designing and creating zoogeographical maps of the Perm Territory and Perm City which aim is to realize the two projects. They are considered in the article. The first project is the creation of zoogeographical chapter in the integrated geographical atlas of the Perm Territory; the second—is cartographic support for birding in Perm. The two projects are united by one theme of the given research. The thematic content of the maps is based on the scientific vertebrate system. All the 15 maps in the zoogeographical chapter are designed in such a way that they contain various maps on the given theme. There examined the principles of designing small-scale zoogeographical educational maps for different age groups (primary, secondary and higher education). Map-booklet “Birding in Perm” in scale 1:65,000 is designed for birdwatchers-beginners with no age limits. All maps are in ArcGIS 10.4.1. The improvement in methodology of creating zoogeographical maps and legends by implementation geoinformational technologies and computer processing expands the modern opportunities for thematic zoogeographical cartography.
