Possibilities of application of geoinformation technologies for the optimal location of new maternity hospitals in Moscow are considered in the article. Among the main factors that are taken into account are the following: demographic features of the population in Moscow, an existing structure of maternity hospitals and a road-street network of the city.
The article is devoted to the study of ethnic structure of the population in Russia and former USSR as well as the dynamics of ethnic processes by the means of mathematical and cartographical modeling. Integrated indicators are developed to estimate ethnic diversity in Russia and former USSR (ethnic diversity index and its modification - ethnic diversity index adjusted for the ability to speak Russian), maps are created on the basis of the derived indicators, claster analysis is produced to develop a topological classification of regions on their ethnic composition. Finally the forecast of ethnic structure of the population up to 2030 is given.
