Cartographic materials are an important tool for different purposes. Environmental maps are essential for various activities aimed at protecting the environment. The work presents the experience of creating a map called “Landfills in the Serpukhov district” using GIS and remote sensing data. Garbage wastes polygons sites are divided into three types: municipal solid waste, illegal landfills and biological waste. The soil cover of the region is mainly represented by Retisols and Luvic Retic Phaeozem soils. The map allowed us to evaluate the current situation and the spatial location of landfills on different soil types (including the variation of soil texture).
