The name of the country derives from the Greek name of the “Indos”, which means "Indian islands". Its name dates to the 18th century and in 1850 one English ethnologist named George Windsor Earl proposed the term “Indunesians” as well as “Malayunesians”. After the term “Indonesia” was used as a synonym for Indian Archipelago. Dutch academics, though, preferred “Malay Archipelago” instead, but after 1900 the term “Indonesia” became more common in academic circles outside the Netherlands.
This country is the largest archipelagic country in the world, as it was already mentioned before. It extends 5120 kilometres from its eastern to its western part as well as 1760 kilometres from its northern to its southern border. There are about 13466 islands included in the term of “Indonesia”, 6000 of which are nowadays inhabited. The largest islands are Sumatra, Java, Borneo, New Guinea and Sulawesi. Indonesia shares its land borders on Borneo with Malaysia, on the island of New Guinea with Papua New Guinea and on the island of Timor with East Timor. It also shares the maritime borders across the narrow straits with Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Palau and Vietnam to the north. It also borders with another huge island country — Australia.
The capital of Indonesia is situated on the island called Java. The largest cities, apart from the largest Java, are Medan, Semarang, Surabaya and Bandung. The country’s average population density is 134 people per square kilometre, making this country take the 79th place in the world as there are 940 people per square kilometre living on Java island. Indonesia itself is the most volcanoes country in the whole world. Its mountains Mount Bromo and Mount Semeru, situated on Java, are the most popular. There is also Puncak Jaya, which is the highest peak of the country, which can be found at 4884 metres above the sea level. The largest lake there is “Lake Toba” in Sumatra, having its area spreading on the 1145 square kilometres. The largest rivers in Indonesia are in Kalimantan: they include the Barito and the Mahakan. Apart from the numerous volcanoes (at least 150 active volcanoes, such as Tambora and Krakatoa), there are also frequent earthquakes in Indonesia.
If you still want to visit this country, which is obviously very green and beautiful, or if you plan to have business with its local people making business plans all over its territory, then it can always be very useful to have its map, created by yourself, so you can mention all of the strategic places for your business to develop. Making your own geo map of Asia or Indonesia in particular can be a challenge, especially once you have not very much experience in drawing such things. In this case we recommend you to use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, as well as the “Continent Maps solution”, which can be found and downloaded from “Maps area” of ConceptDraw Solution Park from this site or from ConceptDraw STORE to simplify your work as the vector stencils library "Asia" included in this solution contains 57 map contours, included the Indonesia’s one.
