The article is devoted to the visualization features on the maps of indicators of the socio-economic development of the Arctic territories. In recent years, issues of the development of the Arctic territories of the Russian Federation have been one of the priority directions for the development of the state. That explains the relevance of research in this area. It is proposed to use modern geographical information systems as a method of displaying socio-economic indicators in space. This choice led to the availability of a large array of data necessary for analyzing the opportunities and priorities of the socio-economic development of the Arctic territories. As an example, an indicator is considered - the payroll of all employees of organizations. According to the presented results, we can conclude that there is a strong differentiation of the Arctic territories by the level of financial security.
