Following the map of Zimbabwe, I made a Rwanda map, which is located in Africa. Rwanda is a country located in Tanzania to the east, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, and Burundi to the south.
It is a very small country with an area of 2634,000 hectares, ranking 146th in the world. With a population of 12.95 million, it ranks 76th in the world, and its gross national product (GDP), which can tell the economic situation, is $10.1 billion, making it a poor country that ranks 137th in the world.
The GDP per capita, where people can know their lives, is $772 as of 2018, which can be said to be better than those of more difficult countries, but if the standard is set to Asia or Europe, it can be said that people will have a hard life.
Rwanda is classified as one of the poorest countries, and the lives of its people are difficult. The reason for this is that the economy faced the worst situation due to political instability, corruption, and a government that does not care for the people amid prolonged civil war and genocide.
Although it is a dictatorship in recent years, politics has stabilized after Paul Kagame took office, and the infrastructure has been improved while showing the possibility of development. .
Looking at the Global Hunger Index, Rwanda in 2016 shows that it is a serious level with 27.4 out of 100. Rwanda’s main exports are coffee, tea and tin, with agriculture and service showing growth.
Although it is showing a large economic growth rate, the high import of industrial products that most African countries are experiencing is preventing the turn into a surplus, and because it is a landlocked country with no ports, transportation costs are high. .
When looking at countries with economic development, various industries coexist, and Rwanda’s economic dependence on agriculture is too high. This is because bad climates or poor harvests have a big impact on the economy.
Although it is a dictatorship, the tourism industry is developing greatly due to the good security conditions among African countries. Although an African country with high economic development potential, it can be said that it is difficult enough to cause starvation.
To this extent, I can learn about the map of Rwanda and talk about the map. The program I used to create the map was an illustrator, and I used Photoshop to add colors.
Not only one map was produced, but three types of maps, color maps, basic maps, and outline maps were made so that they can be used for various purposes. All can be downloaded for free, just click on Google Drive at the bottom.
1. Rwanda Map
This is the Rwanda map created this time. Prior to 2006, it consisted of 12 provinces, but it was judged as the cause of the genocide, and all administrative districts were eliminated and newly established, consisting of 4 states and 1 city.
So if you download a map made in the past, you can see that it’s in the wrong administrative area. The names of the regions are indicated in Korean and English, but the Wikipedia administrative section document was referenced.
The neighboring countries of Tanzania, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Uganda seem complicated, so the location is not marked with borders, but only letters.
The color is used for the division of regions, so it is easier to distinguish and looks good, so it would be a good idea to attach a Rwanda map to your blog or site.
And because it is made large in A3 size, it will not break even if you enlarge it when you print it or when working on graphics.
2. Basic Rwanda Map
The next Rwanda map is color-removed, which may look good if the color is present, but depending on the print quality, the text may be difficult to see and the ink may be high, which may be bad if printed in large quantities.
So, it was made because I thought that some people would want a map with colors removed, and since the terrain is white, it is good to use while taking notes after printing, and it is easy to add information using a graphic program such as Photoshop.
And when uploading to the Internet, the color can look good, but it can look complex and the text can be difficult to see. So, if you are uncomfortable with colors when printing or uploading, you can use the map above.
3. Contour Rwanda map
Finally, this is a Rwanda map with all elements removed. This is a good map for those who create their own Rwanda map using a graphic program. It has only outlines, so you will be able to work comfortably when adding colors and information you want.
Lakes are also marked so that you can know the topography properly, and all lines are checked to ensure there is no break, so there is no need for additional work.
The above 3 maps can be downloaded as compressed files by clicking on Google Drive below. In addition to the Rwanda map, we have produced various regions of the world, so please click the map category in the top menu to download the map you need.
