Following the map of Iceland, this time I created a Sri Lanka map, which is located in South Asia. Sri Lanka is an island country that is not a landlocked country with India located to the north, and it was not very difficult when working with it as there are not many islands.
The country is not large enough to rank 122th in the world with an area of 6561,000 hectares. With a population of 21.41 million, it is ranked 58th in the world, and its gross national product (GDP), which provides an indication of the economic situation, is ranked 66th in the world with 84 billion dollars.
The GDP per capita, which shows the real life of the people, is 4,102 dollars, which is better than the neighboring countries such as India 2,009 dollars and Nepal 1,033 dollars. In the 2010s, the growth rate was 8%, but only 2~3% growth rate was observed during the recession in 2017.
Although it showed a 3% growth rate in 2018, it fell back to the 2% level in 2019, and there are also observations that in the 2020s it could be a big decline due to the pandemic.
Infrastructure is important for industrial development, and there were power shortages, budget problems, and security problems due to a long civil war, but it has stabilized since the end of the civil war.
Looking at the industrial structure, there are various industries, and the clothing industry is typically strong. In addition, there are many agricultural and tea exports, and because it is an island country, the fishery industry is also active.
Since there are no threatening countries around and it is an island country, I thought that I would not invest a lot in defense spending, but when looking at defense spending as a percentage of GDP, I am spending so much defense spending that it ranks 27th.
Sri Lanka is receiving a lot of investment from China, and this problem is causing a skew between India and the United States. China is criticizing China because it is a strategy to expand its influence, and India and the United States are criticizing China because it is threatening if the country just south gets along with China.
Sri Lanka may think that it is good because it is investing, but since all of them are in debt, it may be difficult for the country in the future, just like African countries.
When I learned about the country of Sri Lanka and talked about the map, the program I used was an illustrator, and Photoshop was used to add colors.
Not only one map was created, but four types of color maps, basic maps, black and white maps, and outline maps were made so that they can be used for various purposes.
1. Sri Lanka Map
Regions are classified by color according to the appearance of the Sri Lanka map created this time, and the names of regions are indicated in Korean and English by referring to the Wikipedia Administrative District document. The capital Colombo uses a red star icon so you can find it right away.
When I first started making a map, I decided to make a simple map and a map that doesn’t use a lot of colors, rather than making it in detail, but the downloaders said it was better to have colors, so I recently made it.
The basic frame was made in Illustrator, the color was worked in Photoshop, and the text was clearly visible by using desaturated colors. Because it contains color, it looks great, so it would be a good idea to use it to provide information on Sri Lanka on your blog or site.
2. Basic Sri Lanka Map
This is a Sri Lanka map that is not color-coded as it was previously created. No color is used except for the background, so if you want to print, you can save ink and use it as a mark after printing.
And when you add color or information using a graphics program like Photoshop, you will be able to work comfortably. Especially, if you want to add color, you will be able to easily add the color you want because you worked while checking the breaks of all lines.
3. Contour Sri Lanka Map
Finally, this is a Sri Lanka map with only outlines, which is the best for graphic users. Since all text has been removed from color, it will be convenient for those who want to provide a variety of information about Sri Lanka when adding information with a graphic program.
The above 4 Sri Lanka map are all compressed files and can be downloaded for free by clicking on Google Drive at the bottom.
Since we have made maps of various countries as well as Sri Lanka map, if you provide travel reviews or country information through maps, please refer to the map category at the top of the site and download the maps of the countries you need for free.
