The Electronic Atlas of Radioactive Contamination of Ukraine 2014

The implementation of an electronic Atlas of Radioactive Contamination of Ukraine 2014 has provided the removal a number of restrictions imposed by way of implementing an electronic atlas from 2000 to 2011:

  1. A local and server versions of RadAtlas 2014.
  2. Streamlined interface for different kinds of browsers using the HTML5 / CSS3 / JS
  3. Upgraded decision tree using XSLT XML transformation model in the HTML text.
  4. The basis of the mapping component library was laid Leaflet (JavaScript library), which allows you to work with map data in various formats. In this library were added some features (search, distance measuring instruments display the legends and descriptions card tool "the whole map") needed to work RadAtlas.
  5. Search in the Atlas is implemented in Javascript. Developed two types of search: the tree (menu) and map layers.
  6. Given the opportunity to connect to the Atlas Maps elements in the format GeoJson and provided search and visualization on the attribute values of these elements.
  7. Other.

Atlas of Radioactive Contamination of Ukraine 2008

More than 20 years after the Chernobyl catastrophe there’s a demand for an edition that would give an overall display of not only the forming fields of radioactive contamination, but of other related topics. These topics include the influence of ionizing radiation on human health, medical, demographic, social and economic consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe:

The concept of the Atlas of Radioactive Contamination lies in the following:

  1. The Atlas is a complex edition that holds generalized information on radioactive contamination of the territory with radio nuclides, along with information on medical, social and economical aspects of the Chernobyl catastrophe.
  2. The Atlas is based on the latest expert developments and research, along with data and material, accumulated by the leading institutions and organizations of Ukraine in the field of radio-ecological monitoring.
  3. The Atlas is a scientific and academic edition; it is meant to give information on the consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe to both specialists and general public.
  4. The Atlas was issued in two versions – paper and electronic, and in two languages – English and Ukrainian. The structure and content of these editions are consistent and complement one another.

The paper version of the Atlas was issued in the form of a 52- page album of A3 format. It contains 4 sections with 40 maps and schemes, texts, graphs and diagrams. The scales of maps of Ukraine range from 1:2.5 million to 1:12 million. Map scales for some territories are increased up to 1:100 thousand.

The electronic version of the Atlas was issued on CD in the form of a hypertext document with ActiveХ components. It holds interactive maps, texts, graphs and diagrams, and table information.

Atlas of Radioactive Contamination of Ukraine
Structure of the Edition
  • Contamination of territories by radio nuclides of the late phase of the catastrophe impact.
  • Maps that provide insight into the impact of radioactive contamination on humans and into medical consequences of the accident.
  • Maps of social and economic consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe.
  • Reference deliverables and maps.

Each of these two versions of the Atlas has its own benefits that complement each other in case the two versions are issued at the same time. These benefits are:

  • The paper version applies traditional cartographic approaches and methods, and provides fullest visual comprehension of a cartographized phenomenon.
  • The electronic version gives an opportunity to extend the information base of the atlas, because it contains relevant deliverables and data that cannot be included into the paper version due to limited holding capacity of the latter. The version also provides the interactive work with a map that lies in the following: search by a certain attribute, retrieving information about the chosen object, changing map scale and accuracy, moving around the map.

The Atlas was developed by order of the Ministry of Ukraine of Emergencies and Affairs of Population Protection from the Consequences of Chernobyl Catastrophe.

The Atlas is meant for the functionaries of legislative and executive bodies, scientific workers, and a broad range of readers.
