Since maps presented in this strategies may be used by different groups of people (managers, scientists, average citizens), developing the geographical basis, it is necessary to adhere to the principle of maximum completeness. The layout of map series should be carried out considering classical recommendations. The means of cartographic representation for local social-economic development strategies are significantly different from those for supranational, national, regional and municipal strategies. For local strategies maps it is appropriate to choose methods of cartographic symbols, line symbols, isolines, localized diagrams, areas and vectors. Special symbols and map design system elaboration considering global trends such as use of bright colors, visual, pictorial representation have been highlighted. Given that development strategies are often used by non-specialists in the field of cartography, it is extremely important that the developed symbols correspond to the principles of expressiveness and artistry. The author presents the structure, directions of use and sample of cartographic works of map series for «Pesochin Social-Economic Development Strategy for 2017-2020», created at the Department of Physical Geography and Cartography of V.N.
