The paper is about field and special methods of radiation terrain mapping with the identification of their distinctive features, advantages and disadvantages of each of them. The applicability of methods in various situations of radiation contamination is shown. An analysis of sources of radioactive radiation and of the situation of radiation contamination in Russia has been carried out. Different detectors of ionizing radiation are compared. It is proved that SiPM combines high performance and operational characteristics most effectively, making it possible to use it in a gamma spectrometer for any type of radiation mapping.
