Annotation:  The article is devoted to possibility using of unmanned aerial vehicles in planting, the leading branch of agriculture in North Kazakhstan region (NKR). In the light of planting intensification unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) use in agricultural purposes for getting information about monitoring conditions of agricultural lands and operative direction by seeds more and more frequently. In connection to this authors present the methodology of geoinformation mapping of agrarian landscapes on example of model site of North Kazakhstan region using GIS technologies and aerial photography materials from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The methodology involves preparatory works, detailed analysis of initial materials, preliminary field landscape and geographical surveys in the studied territory, aerial photography from the UAV along the developed route in the specified mode, processing of survey materials. Authors define the advantages of using UAVs in agrarian and landscape research and mapping of agrarian and landscape are considered. Areas of application of UAVs, materials and data of aerial photographs in agricultural production, construction and agrarian landscapes managing are defined.

Keywords:  agrarian landscape, mapping, map, geographic information systems, UAVб North Kazakhstan region.
