The researchers of Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University and national Valday park are now completing a project on creating CD "National Valday Park. The CD-ROM is about the unique forest-lake complex of Valday sublimity, where the natural conditions of ecosystems were preserved, because there was no significant influence of antropogenetic factors. The National Park, which is situated on the territory of Okulovsy, Valday, and Demyanks regions of Novgorod oblsast, possesses biogeocenosis that could be considered as standards for the Northen West of Russian Federation. Owing to this fact the territory of the Park serves as a scientific testing ground for the number of institutions of Moskow, St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod, and the cities of foreign countries. Information about memorials of archeology, history, and culture will be presented on the disk. It includes maps that illustrate geographical situation of Novgorod oblast and the National Valday Park, hydrological and transportation nets, and other information. Climate resources, geological structure, peculiarities of earth cover and water resources will be thoroughly analyzed. Landscape zonation is shown. A separate section will be dedicated to the nature of the park: its flora and fauna. A big number of pictures that show the beauty of the area is included. The information about former and incumbent research projects, conducted on the park territory is presented. For example there is a research work "Ecological indicator" that is going on now. A separate section will be dedicated to education. The CD-ROM "National Valday Park" will be multifunctionall. It could be used as an educational tool for students of schools and universities.
Rich illustrations could become the point of interest for tourists and therefor contribute to development of ecological tourism in the region.
