The programm code for surface mapping of spotted stars that is based on the analysis of rotational-modulated light curves was developed. The results of simulating star’s surface reconstruction are presented, artifacts of reconstruction caused by ill-posed nature of the problem were deduced. The technique was applied to surface mapping of the spotted component of the system HD 12545.
