Following the map of Mozambique, I made a Zambia map, which is located in Africa. It is a landlocked country with the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Tanzania to the north, and Mozambique and Zimbabwe to the south of Malawi to the east.
It is not so small that it ranks 37th in the world, with an area of 75261,000 hectares. It has a population of 18.38 million, ranking 65th in the world. Gross domestic product (GDP), which shows the economic situation, is $23 billion, ranking 106th in the world.
The GDP per capita, which shows the actual economic situation of the people, is $1,539, which is higher than the neighboring countries of Tanzania $1,050, the Democratic Republic of the Congo $561, Malawi $389, and Mozambique $498, but slightly higher than the poorest countries.
Therefore, the hunger problem faced by African countries is also serious, and the hunger problem is so serious that it ranks 116th out of 118 developing countries.
Zambia’s natural resources include cobalt, zinc, lead, emerald, amethyst, gold, silver, and other minerals, which account for more than 90% of foreign currency income.
However, receiving economic aid to China entrusted the development of the copper mine to China, which led to the exploitation of labor, causing opposition from the people.
It was the first country in the world to go bankrupt after the pandemic as it received too much aid from China and could not pay off its debts. It is said that about a third of the $12 billion in external debt is on the Chinese side, so China has put pressure on it, but recently agreed to postpone the payment of interest and principal.
However, since payments were suspended and not forfeited, the Zambian economy is expected to continue to be in a difficult situation from now on. There are many reasons why Zambia’s economy has become difficult, but corruption is a common problem for African countries.
Also, the lack of human resources is a big problem because education is not properly conducted, with the illiteracy rate reaching 40%. On this issue, Bill Gates can say, “To get rid of poverty in Africa, you have to invest in human resources.”
African countries continue to suffer because of the lack of technology and resources to develop them, despite having resources, and the situation where corruption does not return to them.
Religion is believed by the people in the order of Christianity 75%, Islam, and indigenous faiths, and the official languages are English and indigenous languages. When I learned about the country of Zambia and talked about the map, the program I used was an illustrator, and I used Photoshop to add colors.
Not only one Zambia map was created, but three types of maps, color maps, basic maps, and outline maps, were made to be used for various purposes.
1. Zambia Map
This is the Zambia map created this time. Being a landlocked country, there are no seas and there are several rivers. The names of the regions are indicated in Korean and English, but the Wikipedia administrative section document was referenced.
Zambia, where prefectures may exist in other countries, consists of only 10 provinces. The state with the largest population is located in Lusaka with its capital.
The state with the least population was Muchang Street, which was created in November 2011 by merging some of the northern and eastern states. The neighboring countries Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Angola seem complicated, so the location can be determined only by text without creating a border.
Because the region is color-coded, it looks great, so it would be great for those who provide Zambia travel reviews or country information to attach to your blog or site.
And it will not be broken even if you enlarge it when you print it in A3 size and view it or work with graphics.
2. Basic Zambia Map
The next color is good to look at, but when printed, the text may be difficult to see. So I made a Zambia map with colors removed. If you print it, it will look better and the text will look good even if you put it on the site.
And with a graphics program like Photoshop, it will be convenient to use when adding color to specific areas or removing text to add other information.
3. Contour Zambia Map
Finally, this is the map of Zambia with all colors and text removed. The basic map introduced above is also convenient for graphic work, but some of you may want a map with only outlines with all elements removed.
So, you will be able to work comfortably when creating a map containing your own information using an illustrator or Photoshop program.
All lines were checked when working so that people who would like to work with color can work comfortably, so that there is no break. Since I was working with an illustrator, the lines will not be greatly broken even when enlarged.
In addition to the Zambia map, we have made maps for various countries, so if you are using a map to provide information, please refer to the map category above and download the map you need for free.
