Abstract. A special approach for creating of natural basis for thematic mapping is described based on the developed semi-automated technique of spatial analysis of multisource data in GIS. Proposed approach using objective quantitative parameters of environmental factor and relief allows dividing natural continuum of vegetation cover into discrete parts.
