Maps of South America — Republic of Peru


Peru or the Republic of Peru is a well-known country in the western part of South America. This place is bordered by other countries, such as Colombia and Ecuador in the north, Brazil in the east, Bolivia in the southeast and also the Pacific Ocean in the west, having Chile to the south from it. Peru is a very biodiverse country, which means it has a huge variety of life, having its habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region to the peaks of the mountains, which are Andes mountains.

The territory of Peru is quite large, having its capital city called Lima. This country is a democratic republic, divided into twenty-five regions, which are Cuzco, Amazonas, Callao, Ancash, Ica, Apurimac, Junin, Arequipa, Pasco, Ayacucho, Puno, Cajamarca, Ucayali, Huancavelica, Tacna, Huanuco, Tumbes, La Libertad, Piura, Lambayeque, San Martin, Lima Region, Moquegua, Loreto and Madre de Dios. Each of the regions has an elected government, which is composed of a president as well as the council, serving the four-year terms. The governments plan the regional development, promote economic activities and manage public economic development. The province of Lima is administered by a city council.

Peru is a developing country: its so-called “Human development Index” score as well as a poverty level is about 25,8%. The main economic activities in Peru are manufacturing, fishing, mining and agriculture. The population of Peru is over 31 million and it includes Europeans, Amerindians, Asians as well as Africans. The main language of Peru is Spanish, which is also the main language in the other countries of South America, as well as, obviously, Spain. Although some of the local people speak “Quechua”, which is one of the local native languages. The name of this country comes from “Biru”, known to be the name of a local ruler, living near Panama.

There are a few metropolitan areas defined for Peru, the largest of which is the “Lima Metropolitan Area”. This Lima Metropolitan Area is on the 7th place among other large metropolises in the Americas.

The area of Peru is 1285216 square kilometres or 496225 square miles in the western part of South America. Its Andean Mountains run parallel to the Pacific Ocean, defining the three regions, traditionally used for describing the country in terms of its geographical location. The coast in its western part is narrow, except for the valleys, which were created by the seasonal rivers. The highlands consist the region of the mountains — the Andes, including the Altiplano plateau as well as the highest peak of the country.

The mentioned highest peak of Peru is 6768 metres above the sea level, which is 22205 feet, and it is of the mountain called “Huascaran”, located in one of the Peruvian provinces of Yungay in the Anchas region. It is situated in the Cordillera Blanca range of the western mountains — Andes. The highest summit to the south is Huascarán, which is the highest point in Peru, as it was mentioned above. This mountain is also on the fourth place among other high mountains in the Western Hemisphere as well as South America, followed by Monte Pissis, Aconcagua and Ojos del Salado. This mentioned mountain was named after an emperor from the 16th century.

The third region of Peru is the “selva”, which means “jungle”. It is basically a wide expanse of flat terrain covered by the rainforest of Amazon, extending to the east. Almost 60% of the country's area is located within this region, so it is the largest one in the whole Peru. Most of the Peruvian rivers originate in the peaks of the Andes. They, after, drain into one of three basins, which are the areas of land, where the precipitation collects and drains off into a common outlet. Those rivers that drain towards the Pacific Ocean are short and quite steep, flowing intermittently. The tributaries of the River of Amazon have a much larger flow. They are also longer and less steep where they exit the “sierra”. All rivers, draining into the Lake Titicaca are known to be short, but at the same time they have a large flow.

The longest rivers of Peru are the Maranon, the Ucayali, the Yavari, the Pulumayo, the Urubamba, the Amazon, the Huallaga and the Mantaro. The largest lake is Lake Titicaca, which is perfectly well known to be between Bolivia and Peru in the Andes. This river is also the largest in the whole South America. Talking about the water resources, the largest reservoirs are all in the coastal region of Peru. They are the Tinajones, the Poechos, the San Lorenzo as well as El Fraile one.

Creating your map of South America and the countries there one by one may be a challenge and once you start with drawing the map of Peru, then the “Continent Maps” solution from “Maps area” of ConceptDraw Solution Park from this site can be the one you might need while working in ConceptDraw Pro software. Having this solution means having all needed for creating the great looking, as well as smart and professionally looking maps of different countries, such as Peru, including any other, which can be found in the world.

This solution provides all of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users with the stencil library called “Peru”, which can be used while creating your own map of this wonderful country. The previously made up and well-designed vector shapes, which are included in this solution, will be very useful in creating the needed maps using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software. This “Continent Maps” includes, apart from the library, mentioned before, also the pre-made examples of maps of the different countries, including the ones of Peru, so you can use these templates as your own drafts for making the maps you want, editing the existing in order to get any result you want to see.

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data. This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.Flowchart Symbols and Meaning, workflow diagram symbols, process flow diagram symbols
