Until now, I have made maps mainly for countries, but since almost everything is being made, I am going to go deeper and make maps related to regions or cities. At first, I made a Washington map, which is located in the US, which is well known and travels a lot in Korea.
The area is 184,827km², and if you look at the entire US map, it may look small because it is not large, but you can see that it is large when compared to Korea’s area of 223,404km².
The population is growing every year to 7.6 million as of 2020, due to the large number of immigrants from other states. Compared to 10 years ago, the number of people has increased by almost 1 million.
The cause of this population increase is seen by experts as a result of the large increase in jobs at large companies such as Amazon and Microsoft. It borders the Pacific Ocean to the west and Canada to the north. The state’s symbol is said to be a killer whale that can be seen when going out to the shore.
Washington’s total GDP is as high as the world’s 25th at $510 billion, and the per capita GDP is $65,454, making it seventh in the world. The United States can be said to be the largest in the global economy, but it is amazing that one state is about this level.
The industry is mainly commerce and industry, and the service industry accounts for 80% of all industries, and Seattle, which can be called a large city, is a state with large corporations such as Microsoft, Nintendo, and Boeing.
And agriculture is also developed. Fruit production is at the top of the United States. Apples, grapes, and cherries are the most produced in the United States. I was also confused at one time, but since it is not possible to distinguish between Washington D.C city and Washington state, if you do a Washington search on Naver, Washington D.C will come out, so it may be confusing if you are not interested.
Washington, D.C. is the capital city of the United States at the eastern end and Washington State is located at the west end, so the location is different and the state and city are different.
The climate is the west coast, and the coastal area is said to be warm enough to live in winter. If I know about Washington like this and talk about the map, the program I used is an illustrator, and I used Photoshop to add color.
As with the previous country maps, we did not create only one type of Washington map, but made it into three types of color maps, basic maps, and outline maps so that they can be used for various purposes.
All of the maps introduced below are compressed files and can be downloaded for free by clicking Google Drive at the bottom.
1. Washington Map
This is the state of the Washington map of the United States created this time. Because it is such a large country, states alone are divided into many counties as shown above. Previously, when creating a map, there was a Wikipedia administrative area document, so it was easy to create, but since there is no state, I searched on Google and indicated the name of the region.
So, in case there may be errors, I marked them with care as much as possible, but if there are any errors, please leave a comment and I will correct it immediately.
If you are writing information about the state or a travel review on the Washington map, the colors are good to look at, so using the map types above will be convenient when providing a variety of information.
The size is A3 size, not A4, which is the most commonly used size, so it’s okay to print and paste to see, and when adding information with a graphic program, it won’t break even if you enlarge it, so it will be nice to work with.
2. Basic Washington Map
If the Washington map that was introduced at the beginning is colored, the map above is the color removed. If there is color, it is good to look and it is convenient to distinguish regions, but when printing is done, it takes a lot of color ink and the text may be difficult to see depending on the print quality.
So every time I create a map, I am adding a base map with colors removed. Since there is no color, it may be difficult to distinguish regions, but if you want to add information by adding color to only specific regions, it can be said to be a more convenient map.
3. Contour Washington map
Finally, for those who want to work with graphics, this is the Washington map with all colors and text removed. The size is also A3, so it is easy to work while expanding, and since all lines are broken, there is no need to do additional work when adding color.
If you use the Washington map to provide information, you will find a variety of types. Download the three types above and try using the one that suits your purpose.
In addition, since we made maps of various countries, if you are writing country information or travel reviews through the map, please click the map category above to download the map you need.
