3.9.2. Rules for adding attributes to vegetation items

The attribute panel for vegetation items looks like this:

When adding attributes to vegetation items, follow these rules.

3.9.2.1. Type

Select the item type from the list:

  • Woodlands:

    • Forests and sparsely wooded areas and areas occupied by trees and shrubs located outside of localities.
    • Areas occupied by trees and shrubs within parks and squares
    • Sections occupied by trees and shrubs on vacant lots, or on city blocks without buildings or only with “Utility or storage” buildings.
  • Park, square — named and un-named parks, squares, and forest parks.

    Note.

    The outlines of named items either coincide with their associated administrative divisions or are drawn in accordance with the situation in that particular area (for example, they might follow a fence line).

    A vegetation polygon may contain other sections of vegetation (such as woodlands or lawns), or it may contain items that exist independently of it (such as reservoirs, lanes, squares, buildings, etc.). See also point 3.9.1.5.

    Draw un-named parks and squares if they are items with clearly designated territories (for example, if they are bordered by roadways) and are not located within building blocks.

  • Urban vegetation — sections of trees, shrubs, and sod on city blocks with buildings (within localities).

    Note.

    Sections that are completely covered by grass that relates to the “Lawn” type; if there are bushes or trees on the territory (even if it's a small section of it), label it as “Urban vegetation”.

    Assign vegetation that is located beyond the actual border of a locality (for example, beyond the border of private-sector land or a city block) to the “Woodlands” type. This type of vegetation area is marked with a red arrow in the drawing:

  • Nature reserve — protected nature areas of all types: national parks, nature reserves, wildlife sanctuaries.

    Note.

    The item polygon coincides with its administrative division.

    A vegetation polygon may contain other sections of vegetation (such as woodlands or lawns), or it may contain items that exist independently of it (such as reservoirs, lanes, squares, buildings, etc.). See also point 3.9.1.5.

  • Lawns — territories with artificially created grass covering:

    • Lawns in named parks, squares and other named cultural territories (for example, those on the territory of the Hermitage Garden)
    • Decorative lawns, including athletic fields and flowerbeds
    • Roadside lawns that separate sidewalks from roadways, lawns that separate sidewalks from one another, pedestrians paths
    • Lawns that serve as physical road dividers

    Draw lawns on the territories of localities, as well as those on the territories of large organizations outside of cities.

  • Garden — territories occupied by fruit or decorative trees and shrubs that were planted by humans (including vinyards).

    Plants on the territories of individual developments should be assigned to the woodland type “Urban vegetation”.

    Note.

    Draw the item polygon based on the physical border of the section containing that type of vegetation. See also point 3.9.1.5.

  • Cemetery — territories that are designated for the burial of the deceased or the internment of their ashes after cremation. This includes official pet cemeteries.

    Territories containing free-standing graves or monuments to the dead (such as the tomb of the unknown soldier) are not considered “cemeteries”, but you can draw them on the map as Locations.

3.9.2.2. Name

Assign vegetation item names in accordance with the general rules (see 3.1.3. Map item naming rules.

Examples of names for vegetation items:

  • Troekurov Grove
  • Nikita Shelkovnikov Grove
  • Silver Park Forest
  • Matveyevsky Woods
  • Vasilievsky Forest
  • Victory Park
  • Devichy Field Square
  • Hops Plantation
  • Dubrava Forest
  • Sredny Bor Forest
  • Zarechnyy Bor Forest

3.9.2.2.1

If a cemetery doesn't have an official name but is locally referred to using the name of the closest locality or a religious denomination (as long as that denomination is not the prevailing one in that area), then you can use that name as the official name. For example:

  • Neklinovsky cemetery
  • Staroobryadcheskoe cemetery
