Geotopes in the system of geographical Knowledge

V.Yu. Khalatov, S.N. Abdulmyanov

We examine some issues related to determination, identification and classification of geotopes. Attention is drawn to the fact that, unlike the protection of wildlife objects, the geologo-geographical features became the objects of protection relatively recently.It is shown that the role of the aesthetic and scenic value of natural features is particularly important when identifying geotopes of mountainous territories. Using the southeastern part of Gorny Altai as an example, we have developed a classification of genetic types of geotopes. This study covers in great detail the issues concerning the need to popularize the geotopes in education, which was materialized in the creation by these authors of the information-educational site of the geotopes in the southeastern part of Gorny Altai.
