We have already added a world map 2019. Have a look for yourself.
Above we have a simple World Map with continents and Regions in different colors. Here at “Map of Europe” we realized that many users coming to our site wanted to look at a map of the world and the continents and regions.
Continental borders are a little ambiguous and fluid at the moment and we tried to cater for this by adding some regions.
Below is a list continental border anomalies.
- Western Russia is marked as being part of Asia even though generally it is considered part of Europe. We did this because we felt there was room on the web for a simpler version of a world map, one that ignored some of the border ambiguities.
- We have added the Middle East as a region. This was due to many users emailing us and asking how does the middle east relate to the rest of the world.
- Australasia is marked in aqua and this region is sometimes referred to as Oceania. This is not stricvtly accurate but like we said above these matters are somewhat ambiguous. Strictly seaking the content is genrally referred to as just Australia.
- Egypt is marked as Part of Africa above. While this is strictly correct it could have also fallen in under the region of the Middle East.
This map is not meant to be a definitive or even strictly accurate depiction of the world. As we said earlier that tends to be fluid anyway. This map is meant to be a quick reference guide for students and teachers to use when doing geography or cartography on the fly.
A world map is usually a map of the surface of the Earth, which is often made utilizing any one of a variety of map projections. Maps of the world in most cases are either ‘physical’ or ‘political’, but there are exceptions to this rule. The goal of the physical map is usually to demonstrate attributes of geography like mountains, soil variety or even land utilization.
The most crucial function of the political map is to demonstrate territorial borders and political boundaries. These are not always clear cut but most poltical maps of the world will try and give you a best match fora certain point in history. Geological maps demonstrate not just the physical surface area, but attributes of the underlying rock, fault lines, and sub surface structures.
