Suggestion of the conception of some kinds of analytic maps ot the environment

Daniela Kolejková

The authress evaluates environmental maps and their conception and construction by four methods of analysis: simple, causal, conditive and taxative. The main notice is given to the ahalytic conditive maps for their capability to expresse by cartographical means a chaine conditions - causes - consequences. Two maps - Air pollution and it sources, and Anthropogenic transformation of relief - are demonstrated as examples. The authress presents also some other advantages of such maps in applied environmentology.
