Following the map of Finland, this time I made a Norway map, a Nordic country in the same location. Norway is a country bordering Sweden, and in Korea, Vikings and aquatic mackerel are widely known.
It is a country with a long line of territories along with Finland and Sweden, which was created recently, and because of its long coastline, it can be said that it is a country that has developed a lot of fishing.
The territorial area is not small enough to be ranked 41st in the world, and it has a population of 5.42 million, which is relatively small compared to the territory, ranking 118th in the world. The GDP, which represents the economy, is ranked 30th in the world at $430.3 billion.
Gross domestic product (GDP) may be small depending on the size of the population, but the per capita GDP is as high as 81,697 dollars, which ranks first in the world. There is.
The reason for this high level is the abundance of natural resources, which ranks oil exports at 9th in the world and natural gas exports at 3rd. The GDP of mining is 25%, which is higher than that of oil producing countries.
Agriculture did not develop, because only about 3% of the country can only be farmed. Therefore, the fishing industry has developed, and not only mackerel, which is famous in Korea, but also cod, herring, and sardines are exported.
When I learned about Norway and talked about the map, the program I used was an illustrator, and Photoshop was used to add colors.
We have created three types of maps, color maps, basic maps, and outline maps, rather than just one map for various purposes.
1. Norway Map
This is the first Norway map with regional divisions in color. Because the territory is long, it is made vertically rather than horizontally so that you can see it larger, and the name of the region is indicated in Korean and English referring to Wikipedia.
When I searched the Norwegian map in a search engine, the Svalbard Islands were not displayed, but when I first created the map, I didn’t mark it, but when I saw the Google map, I found it and added it.
If you look at the image above, it may look small, but the size is large in A3, so it’s good to look after printing and pasting, and if you’re working on graphics, it won’t break even if you zoom in, so it’s easy to edit.
It looks good because it has color, so it will be great for uploading to a blog or site to use.
2. Basic Norway Map
Next is the basic map, with the colors removed to identify regions. Color can be good to look at, but depending on the print quality, text can be difficult to see and can interfere with graphics.
So, since there is no color as the base map with the color removed, the text will be more visible if you print it, and the terrain will be white, so you will be able to add the color you want or remove the text.
3. Contour Norway Map
Lastly, this is a map with only outlines, which is good for those who want to create a Norway map with their own information using a graphic program such as Photoshop.
Colors for regional divisions from the sea have been removed, and letters with overlapping lines have been removed, so it would be good for those who only want the Norway terrain.
Since I worked while making sure that all the lines for separating the area are cut off, you will be able to conveniently add the color you want. We introduced three types of Norway, but we have made various maps, so if you need a map, please refer to the map category above and download the one you want.
