Abstract: 
We examine the possibility of using the Markov model of images for the interpretation of space images of landscape zones by their structural and textural characteristics. It is shown that the use the Markov madel for the analyses of the spatial Fourier spectra of various images allows one to reflect a probable interrelation of their components. The metods of interpretating the satellite images of landscape zones are considered.
Keywords: interpretation of space images, Markov madel, spatial Fourier spectra
