Following the map of Zambia, which is located in Africa, this time I moved to Europe and made a Montenegro map. Montenegro is located in Bosnia and Herzegovina to the north and Albania to the south of Serbia.
It is a small country with a territorial area of 1381,000 hectares, ranking 159th in the world, and has a population of 620,000, making it the 167th place in the world. Gross domestic product (GDP), which shows the economic situation, ranks 145th in the world at $5.4 billion due to its small population.
The GDP per capita, which shows the real life of the people, is $7,933, which can be said to be a poor economic situation among European countries. The economy is supported by agriculture and tourism, with three-quarters of the population engaged in farming, mainly sheep and goats.
When looking at the economic growth rate, it recorded 5% in 2017 due to the vitalization of the tourism industry and increased foreign investment, but recently it has fallen to -20% due to the decrease in tourists due to the epidemic.
Main exports include aluminum, steel, petroleum by-products, alcohol, tobacco, and wood, and consumer goods are mainly imported. Major trade targets include Serbia, Italy, Greece, and Slovenia.
In the 1990s, it faced a crisis with economic sanctions along with Servi, but despite Serbia’s opposition, it can be said that the situation has turned into a stable situation with independent economic policies.
As they became independent in Serbia, the two countries are still in tension. Recently, if the Serbian ambassador’s history-related remarks interfered with the internal affairs, both countries deported the ambassadors.
It is a country that is not well known in Korea, but if you like football, some of you may know it through Incheon United’s striker no test.
I didn’t know very well, but recently I got to know it while watching the K-League, and while making a map, I knew where it was located and what the economy was like. Compared to other countries, there is not much information or news, so I will learn about country information and talk about maps.
The program used to create the map was added using Photoshop when adding illustrator colors. Like the maps made so far, not only one type was created, but three types of color maps, basic maps, and outline maps were made so that they can be used for various purposes.
1. Montenegro Map
The topography was created by referring to Google Maps as the shape of the Montenegro map created this time, and the names and divisions of regions were indicated in Korean and English by referring to the Wikipedia Administrative District document.
Until now, when creating a map, there were cases where the region was not the latest version, so I made it wrong. This time, I checked the map made on other sites along with Google Maps to see if there was a region merger.
The size was made large in A3, and because the terrain is long, I did not work horizontally but worked vertically so that I could see it larger. The neighboring countries of Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, and Bosnia looked complicated, so we did not create borders, but only marked them with letters so that we could know their location.
When creating a map, there are a lot of elements such as lakes and roads, but if all are displayed, it is too complicated, so if you want a detailed map, you can refer to Google Maps, and if you want a simple map, you can use the map above.
Because regions are classified by color, it is good to see, so it would be great for those who provide travel reviews or country information to attach images to blogs or sites.
2. Basic Montenegro Map
The following map types are Montenegro map from which the colors used for regional classification have been removed. Depending on the print quality, the text may be difficult to see. Since colors other than the sea have been removed, you can save ink.
If there is color, it looks good, but some people don’t like it because the text doesn’t look like the map above. So even if you upload it to a blog that is converted to a small size as a map type that you add each time you create a map, the text will be visible.
And for those of you who would like to add your own information using a graphics program, the terrain is white, so adding it will be easy.
3. Contour Montenegro Map
Finally, this is the Montenegro map with all colors and text removed. As a type of Montenegro map for those who want to work with graphics, there is only an outline, so you will be able to work comfortably when adding color or adding information.
Since I worked while making sure all the lines are broken, I can add color without difficulty, and even if I work while enlarged by working in A3 size, it will not break.
We have created 3 types of Montenegro map, all of which can be downloaded as compressed files by clicking Google Drive below for free. In addition, since we have made maps of various countries, if you provide information through maps, please refer to the map category above and download what you need for free.
