Following the map of Burkina Faso, which is located in Africa, I made a Guinea map, which is located in Africa. Guinea is a country located between Mali to the north, Ivory Coast to the east, Guinea-Bissau to the west, and Sierra Leone to the south.
Guinea’s territorial area is 2,4586,000 hectares, which is not big enough to rank 77th in the world, and it can be said to be the poorest country enough to rank 126th in the world with a gross national product (GDP) of 13.5 billion dollars, which can be used to determine the economic situation.
Guinea’s economic situation is unfavorable for a number of reasons, but the dictatorship and coup that took place until 2008, and the political situation that the current president holds for three years is driving people into a difficult situation.
People aren’t just looking at this situation, but protests for the current president’s resignation campaign took place in 2016, but as the Constitutional Court confirmed that it was three consecutive years, resistance from the people waned.
Even in difficult economic conditions, other African countries are gaining income from underground resources. Guinea also has a lot of bauxite, which is a raw material for aluminum, and accounts for 30% of the world’s reserves.
Economic development can be achieved through underground resources, but due to corruption, failure of economic policies, and an industrial structure of 76% of primary industries, it can be said that Africa is also a poor country.
Since the primary industry is highly dependent and has few manufacturing sectors, the current account is always in deficit and there are various resources, but the fact that development is not possible is also making economic growth difficult.
However, the potential for development is that a special travel warning has been applied due to the spread of Ebola, but now it has been dismantled and political stability has been achieved, so it is possible to grow by attracting foreign capital.
We established a relationship with our country in 2006, and the Embassy of Senegal is serving as an adjunct. Exports include machinery and electrical equipment, while imports are bauxite, coffee and rubber.
The main exporting countries are Spain, Russia, Germany and Ireland, and the main importing countries are China, the Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom. When I learned about Guinea and talked about the map, the program I used was an illustrator, and I used Photoshop to add color.
Not only one map was produced, but three types of maps, color maps, basic maps, and outline maps, were made to be used for various purposes.
1. Guinea Map
When I first made a Guinea map, I was confused because the names were so similar that I kept looking at Equatorial Guinea data, but Equatorial Guinea is a small country located south of Cameroon that can be said to be a different country.
Region names are indicated in Korean and English by referring to the Wikipedia administrative section document, and the capital Conakry has a star icon so that they can be found immediately.
The neighboring countries of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Mali and Guinea-Bissau can be complex, so we do not create borders, but only use letters to identify their locations.
The color is desaturated so that it doesn’t hurt the eyes and makes the text more visible, and because it contains color, it’s good to use it to print and paste it for viewing, or to provide guinea information on a blog or site.
And since it was made large in A3 size and the font was made with 11 points, it looks good even if it is uploaded on the Internet as shown above, and it will not break even if you print it.
2. Basic Guinea Map
If the next color is in it, it looks good and catches your eyes, but if you print it, it takes a lot of ink and depending on the print quality, the text may be difficult to see.
So, a Guinea map that has been de-colored would be a good map type to make the names of the regions more visible, and to add colors to specific regions using a graphics program such as Photoshop, or to display historical events on a map.
In particular, if you are writing information about civil wars and terrorism in African countries, you will need maps of African countries. Will.
3. Contour Guinea map
The two guinea map types introduced so far contain letters or colors, so you can use them right away, but the map above is an outline map with colors and letters removed, and is used by those who add their own colors and information through graphic work. This is a good Guinea map.
Since all the outlines have been checked for breaks in the lines, you will be able to comfortably add colors without additional work. I am mainly producing maps of Africa, but some countries do not have information, but I will make all the countries as much as possible.
In addition, since we have made maps of various countries, if you are using it as a map to create information, please enter the map category above and download what you need for free.
