The article focuses on the description of fire regimes mapping environment for the Pechora-Ilych nature reserve and its surroundings. The purpose of the system is presentation of fire regimes maps of the studied territory to a wide range of researchers in a convenient way. In addition, web-GIS allows to organize and store derivative thematic spatial data. The resource performs research and educational functions. The web-GIS structure includes sections: study area, burnability indicators, fire regimes, deviations of fire regimes, fire cycles. The system was created using the ArcGIS StoryMaps tool on the ArcGIS Online platform. All sections use data from the global geographic information collection ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. Web-GIS allows you to get reference information about the burnability indicators, fire cycles and regimes, as well as their deviations within the Pechora-Ilych nature reserve, local forest areas and spatial units boundaries. In particular, the results of a retrospective statistical analysis of forest burnability indicators within spatial units (the fire frequency, the average number of years between fires, and others) are available.
