Group: Summary

   This data set is a vector coverage of the Map of Natural Landscape and 
   Permafrost Zones and the Net of Soil Temperature Meteorological Stations in 
   Russia and Middle Asian Mountains  (scale 1:4000000), published by the Russian 
   Academy of Sciences Earth Cryosphere Institute and Institute for Phytochemical 
   and Biological Problems in Earth Science  The original map was compiled by E. 
   Melnikov and D.A. Gilichinsky.  The digital map was created in Geograph, which 
   is a Geographic Information System developed by the GIS Research Center, 
   Institute of Geography, Russian Academy of Sciences. Data are available 
   through FTP.
