A picture of what it’s like to live on the South-West coast of South America is the focus of a new map released by the National Geographic Society.
The map, entitled South West Coast of the World, shows the landmass, oceans, rivers, mountains and islands that make up the region, including the Amazon, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Brazil and Chile.
The world map is a new and interactive look at the South America region, the world’s largest, atlas, which maps the continents and oceans.
The new map was produced by the Smithsonian Institute and includes data from over 50 countries, including Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
It features maps and satellite images from all the countries surveyed, including Peru, Chile’s Amazon Basin, Peru’s Amazonian rainforest and Bolivia’s Andes Mountains.
The Atlas is based on data from the Global Hydrographic System (GHS), which allows researchers to measure and track changes in the oceans and landmass as they occur over time.
“This map represents the landscape of the entire South American continent, from the coastlines of the Amazon to the foothills of the Andes mountains, with all the changes that occur along the way,” the Smithsonian’s Sarah Brown said.
“There are many people living in this region who live on different parts of the coast, but they are all in agreement about the one thing: the South Western coastline of South Americas is the largest, most varied and diverse continent on the planet.”
The Atlas was created by geographer David M. Meehl and his colleagues at the Smithsonian, the Geological Survey of Norway and the Universities of Zurich, Zurich, Austria and Paris.
The images are available for free to everyone through the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s Digital Map Archive, which can be accessed by anyone.
The Atlas has been used to create a 3D map of South-Western Australia.
“We’ve always known that the South is a unique part of the world, so this is an exciting time for mapping,” Mr Meell said.
“The Atlas will enable us to measure the diversity of the South’s geography, and help us understand what drives its development and how to adapt it to our future development.”
