The map "Emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere per person in Ukraine"
The problem of air pollution is characteristic for all settlements of Ukraine. This is one of the factors of unfavorable environmental situation on the territory of the state. However, in some cities, the level of pollution significantly exceeds the average; at the same time there are relatively environmentally friendly areas (figure 1).
The purpose of creating a map of emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere is:
This map will be useful as a model for specialists who wish to compile their own maps of contamination of components of landscapes: soils, water bodies, separate territories, etc.

Legend, symbols and content of the map
The theme of air pollution is better to reveal by means of two cartographic indicators.

Additional information on the dynamics of the ecological component is given by the index of pollutant emissions into the air in 2000-2014. This indicator should be symmetrical so that the map reader could get an idea of ??the general and regional dynamics of atmospheric pollution. Since the card is ordered to be made in black and white, it is advisable to select 3 graduations:
Grayscale 25%, 60% and 80% respectively are selected for the above graduations.
Origin of data and how to get it
Data for making the content content of the card are obtained from the customer. The spreadsheet is called "Emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere by regions and separate settlements". The map contains 65 settlements.
The thematic content is superimposed on the cartographic basis of the territory of Ukraine with a base scale of 1: 8 000 000. The cartographic base contains the following components:
Technological scheme of map elaborating
Such a relatively simple technological scheme allows you to create perfect maps with minimal effort.
