This work deals with the modelling of galactic γ-ray source populations. This includes on the one hand the description of the spatial distribution of sources in the Galaxy and on the other hand the modelling of source properties, like spatial extension and γ-ray luminosity. The found models were investigated and compared. Using the found models simple studies were performed and it was investigated how the spiralarm structure is reflected in the resulting distributions of distance, angular extension and flux. Furthermore supernova remnants were distributed according to a Galactic model and the number of objects above interesting flux limits was determined. As result the number of 1055 sources with Flux > 0.1% Crab Flux, 277 sources with 1% Crab flux and 26 sources with 10% Crab flux were obtained. Finally flux images were generated with different surrounding densities.
