Maps

On July 9, 2011, the Republic of South Sudan became the 193rd member nation at the UN. South Sudan’s complex history, diverse culture, natural landscape and developments needs can be understood in part by reading, analyzing, comparing and combining maps. Maps help understand the physical landscape, cultural diversity, environmental challenges and resource use, language distribution, among many other things. Maps offer a visualization tool to rapidly understand the complexity of a place like South Sudan that has been ravaged by war and has emerged as an independent country with trememdous challenges ahead.

Below, is a selection of maps loosely categorized into subsections. Maps are continually added to the collection so return regularly.
