Following the map of Guinea, I made a Sierra Leone map, which is located in Africa. Sierra Leone is a country that is not well known in Korea, and is located between Guinea to the north and Liberia to the east.
The country is not large enough to rank 119th in the world with an area of 723 million hectares. With a population of 797 million, it is ranked 102nd in the world.
Gross national product (GDP), which shows the economic situation, is ranked 151st in the world at 3.94.147 million dollars, and its per capita GDP is 504 dollars, which is 878 dollars in Guinea. , Liberia is a difficult economic situation that is said to be less than $677.
There is a movie where you can see the difficult situation here. As various countries intervened with blood diamonds, military intervention, coups, and other things that the country could not develop, the worst of life for the people continued.
The ongoing civil war to occupy the diamond mines, the military dictatorship, and the armed forces forced the people to mobilize the mines or mobilize boys to recruit soldiers, attracting great international attention.
So, as the UN peacekeepers begin stationing, they are seeking political stability. However, the hunger problem is so serious that it ranks 112th out of 118 developing countries, with many issues still unsettled.
One of the biggest problems facing African countries is the food problem, and Sierra Leone also relies on imports as its production is low, so food prices are too high for the standard of living.
Forty percent of grocery demand is dependent on imports, which is also a factor in adjusting for rising inflation. In addition, with the civil war that lasted for 11 years and the outbreak of the Ebola virus, one-third of the total population has fallen into refugees, making it difficult for the people.
Currently, it is Ebola, and the economy is getting more difficult as the pandemic has erupted. If you search the news on Google, you can see that there is a lot of support efforts.
The diamond warfare was harsh enough for the people to be made into a movie, and as even information was considered only for their own interests due to the military dictatorship, it is a country that maintains its position as the poorest among African countries.
If you want to know more about the situation in Sierra Leone, you can search for Sierra Leone Civil War on YouTube to view various explanatory videos and documentaries.
If I talk about Sierra Leone like this and learn about the map, the program used for the production is an illustrator, and Photoshop was used to add colors.
I did not create only one map, but as before, I made three types of color map, basic map, and outline map. All can be downloaded as compressed files by clicking Google Drive at the bottom.
1. Sierra Leone Map
This is the recently created Sierra Leone map. If you look at the area, it is made up of 3 states and 1 district, so it was not difficult to divide the area.
Region names are indicated in Korean and English referring to the administrative divisions of Wikipedia. The capital Freetown is located in the Western District, and has a red star icon so you can find it right away.
Because it contains colors, it is easy to distinguish the area and it is good to see, so it will be good to use it while attaching it to the wall after printing or marking it.
And as it is colored, it would be good for those who provide history and country information through Sierra Leone map as an attachment.
When I first made it, I thought it would not be helpful if I made it because the regional division was so simple, but I made it because I wanted to see the history of Sierra Leone and there would be people in need.
2. Basic Sierra Leone Map
Color can be nice because it looks good and is easy to distinguish between regions, but when printing, depending on the print quality, the text may be difficult to see. And if you print in large quantities, it will take a lot of ink.
So I made a Sierra Leone map with no color, and since the terrain is white, you can use it as a mark after printing, or use a graphic program such as Photoshop to mark places or major points of historical events. .
And since the above map is made large in A3 size, it will be suitable for various purposes.
3. Contour Sierra Leone Map
Finally, this is a Sierra Leone map with colors and text removed, which is good for graphics users. Since all elements have been removed, it is good for printing and marking, and for making maps with your own information in graphic programs.
All of the above Sierra Leone map are compressed files, and you can download them for free by clicking on the Google Drive below. If you provide various information through the map, please refer to the map category above to download the map you need.
