Following the Nigerian map, I made a Burkina Faso map, which may be unfamiliar in Korea, located in Africa. Burkina Faso is a landlocked country bordering Mali to the north, Niger to the east, and Ivory Coast and Ghana to the south.
It covers an area of 2,7422,000 hectares, making it the 72nd largest country in the world. With a population of 20.9 million, it is ranked 59th in the world, and its gross domestic product (GDP), which can tell the economic situation, is $15.7 billion, which is poor enough to rank 117th in the world.
It can be said that it is a difficult situation to be able to know the actual lives of the people, with a per capita GDP of 774 dollars, ranking 138th in the world. Compared to neighboring countries, it’s better than $889, Ivory Coast $1,714 and Ghana $2,202, but better than Niger $413.
There may be various reasons for the poor economic situation, but the civil war that took place in the Arab Spring in 2011 left the entire country in chaos, and President Blaise Conpaore wanted to reappoint the country, so he tried to amend the constitution. Becomes difficult.
And, unlike countries where the civil war broke out, and the countries that had been stabilizing, the economic growth rate of Burkina Faso is high at 5%, but the economy is not improving even though the economy has grown because the economic situation is so bad.
Unlike African countries that support their economy with a lot of underground resources, Burkina Faso suffers from a lack of natural resources and a weak industrial base.
The major industries are agriculture and livestock, and the production of crude is 6th in the world and corn is 10th. Gold is an underground resource, but not much.
The main export destinations are China, Turkey, Singapore, and Indonesia in that order, and the main imports are capital goods, food, and oil. Since there are no industrial facilities, the current account is in a deficit, which is affected by fluctuations in the price of major exports of gold and cotton, as well as climate change.
Korea is currently a dangerous country that has been upgraded to a recommendation for withdrawal of Burkina Faso, and it is also the place where the French army rescued after Korea was captured in 2019.
This is a very bad place because it is an area where people are damaged by terrorist organizations such as IS and al Qaeda. When you look at religion, more than 60% of the population is Muslim, and about 19% of Catholics believe.
To this extent, I can learn about Burkina Faso and talk about the map I made this time. The program I used was an illustrator, and I used Photoshop to add color.
Not only one type of map was produced, but three types of maps, color maps, basic maps, and outline maps, were made to be used for various purposes.
1. Burkina Faso Map
This is the image of the Burkina Faso map created this time, and the name of the region is indicated in Korean and English by referring to the Wikipedia Administrative District document. Burkina Faso is made up of 13 states and 45 prefectures, and the map above is a divided state map.
It’s not difficult to distinguish because the area is large, but it’s probably the most sought after map type because the color makes it easier to distinguish.
The neighboring countries of Mali, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Niger, Ivory Coast, and Togo did not indicate borders, but displayed only letters so that the location could be identified. The color is so good that it looks good, so it would be a good idea to attach information about Burkina Faso to your blog or site.
And because it’s A3 size, it won’t break even if you print it or enlarge it on a monitor.
2. Basic Burkina Faso Map
Along with the color map we introduced at the beginning, it is probably the most popular type of Burkina Faso map. Colors are good to look at, but if you need to print in large quantities, they can be very ink intensive and may be difficult to see, depending on the print quality.
That’s why it’s a good map type for people who want to print, and it doesn’t have colors, so you can use a graphic program like Photoshop to add information about a specific area or add color.
In the past, it was the most preferred type of map when I was looking for map materials, so I am working on additional productions while making maps.
3. Contour Burkina Faso map
The last Burkina Faso map type is only an outlined map with all colors and text removed. You can also graphically work with the basic maps introduced above, but there is a hassle of removing the region names if they are not needed.
So, I made a map with all the elements removed, and it would be a kind of map that would be easy for those who want to create a Burkina Faso map with their own information and colors using graphic programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
All 3 types of Burkina Faso map above are compressed files, and you can download them for free by clicking Google Drive at the bottom. If you are creating information through a map, you will need a map. Since we have made maps for various countries so far, please refer to the map category above and download the required map for free.
