Relevance. The development of the Arctic territories of the Russian Federation in recent years is one of the priority directions of development of the government (development of rich hydrocarbon deposits, development of the Northern Sea Route, strengthening of military potential), as well as
raising the standard of living of the population living in the Arctic. At the same time, the development of the polar areas is extremely uneven, the differentiation of socio-economic development between individual municipalities leads to a significant rupture of the economic space of the Arctic,
which predetermined the relevance of this work.
Purpose of the study is to determine the degree of differentiation of the level of financial security of municipalities in the Arctic region by key indicators and visualize some discrepancies as a cartograph.
Results and their application. The work presents the author’s approach to identifying the territories of the Arctic region, the basis of which is the administrative-territorial division of municipalities. In the conditions of a large data array, it was proposed to use modern geographic information systems (GIS) for visualization as a method for mapping economic indicators in space. In this regard, the experience of using such systems in various fields of knowledge and the main possibilities of application in economic research are summarized. To determine the differentiation of the Arctic municipalities, the authors have specified the basic indicators reflecting the financial security of the territories. For the population, the
average size of remuneration of labor is chosen as an indicator, the public sector is represented by the budgetary security of the municipality per capita, and the indicator of the activity of industrial development is determined by the amount of investment per capita. On the basis of the formed
database according to the selected indicators and population size of municipalities, maps of differentiation of the Arctic territories were compiled, the main peculiarities and specific features of individual municipalities were identified. The presented results can be used by public authorities and
local governments in the development of strategic documents for the socio-economic development of the macroregion as a basis for planning and forecasting the development of individual Arctic territories.


Keywords: arctic territories, geo-information technologies, investments, remuneration of labor, fiscal capacity, municipalities.
