"A thematic map is a type of map or chart especially designed to show a particular theme connected with a specific geographic area. ...
A thematic map is a map that focuses on a specific theme or subject area, whereas in a general map the variety of phenomena - geological, geographical, political - regularly appear together. ...
Thematic maps emphasize spatial variation of one or a small number of geographic distributions. These distributions may be physical phenomena such as climate or human characteristics such as population density and health issues. ...
Thematic map are sometimes referred to as graphic essays that portray spatial variations and interrelationships of geographical distributions. Location, of course, is important to provide a reference base of where selected phenomena are occurring. ...
Thematic maps serve three primary purposes.
First, they provide specific information about particular locations.
Second, they provide general information about spatial patterns.
Third, they can be used to compare patterns on two or more maps." [Thematic map. Wikipedia]
The vector stencils library "Thematic maps" contains 7 continent map contours for creating the thematic maps of geographic regions displaying the metric values by countries, states and territories marked by different colors.
Use the design elements library "Thematic maps" to create spatial dashboards using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software for your Spatial Intelligence and Location Intelligence business practice.

How to Create a Directional Map

Travelers often use directional maps to find directions for certain places. These maps are guiding millions of tourists to explore towns and cities worldwide. Searching addresses on a map, view nearby businesses, get driving directions - this is only a little of what directional maps is needed. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to create various kinds of directional maps. You can easily visualize city maps or destinations with driving directions and traveler information using special vector stencils libraries.

The Philippines, officially known as the Republic of the Philippines, is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean.
Use the Continent Maps solution and Philippines library to draw thematic maps, geospatial infographics and vector illustrations. This solution to help visualize the business and thematic information connected with geographic areas, locations or customs; for your business documents, presentations and websites.

Types of Map - Overview

ConceptDraw defines some map types, divided into three categories. Every map type has specific shapes and examples.

Geo Map - Africa

Africa has 54 fully recognized sovereign states, 9 territories and two de facto independent states with limited or no recognition.
Vector design elements library Africa contains country map contours, geographical maps, cartograms and thematic maps for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software. To help visualize the business and thematic information connected with geographic areas, locations or customs.
All ConceptDraw DIAGRAM documents are vector graphic files and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats: image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash, MS Visio (.VDX,.VSDX).
The vector clipart library Geography contains 14 images of geographical features: ocean, forest, river, lake, waterfall, mountains, ravine, volcano, desert, hills, iceberg, trees.
Use the design elements library Geography to draw illustrations with landform images using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A landform in the earth sciences comprises a geomorphological unit, and is largely defined by its surface form and location in the landscape. As part of the terrain a landform is an element of topography. Landform elements also include land such as hills, mountains, plateaus,canyons,valleys, seascape and oceanic waterbody interface features such as bays, peninsulas, seas and so forth, including sub-aqueous terrain features such as mid-ocean ridges, volcanoes,and the great ocean basins." [Landform. Wikipedia]
This landscape illustration example is included in the Nature solution from the Illustration area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples

Metropolitan Area Network combines local networks located within a city, and is based on high data rate compounds, implemented on the basis of fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. Now, with the increasing number of network communities, wireless local area networks based on 802.11b standard are combined into a wireless metropolitan area network consisting of affordable antenna systems and consumer-grade wireless equipment using 802.11a and 802.11b standards.

Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network Examples

A Wide area network (WAN) is a telecommunication network that is used for connecting computers and covers a wide geographical area. WANs often contain a few smaller networks (LANs, MANs, etc.). The packet switching and circuit switching technologies are effectively used in WANs.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Wide area network topology.

SWOT Analysis

Mind map template of a strategy map that can help you display a variety of performance measures that can have an impact on your organization.
The vector stencils library "Cisco WAN" contains 15 symbols of wide area network (WAN) devices and equipment: CSU/ DSU (Channel Service Unit/ Data Service Unit), WAN, MUX (multiplexer), PBX switch, Hub, NAT (network address translation), distributed and local directors, PBX (private branch exchange), Network clouds, DPT (dynamic packet transport).
Create the computer network topology diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software with the design elements library "Cisco WAN".
"A wide area network (WAN) is a network that covers a broad area (i.e., any telecommunications network that links across metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries) using private or public network transports. Business and government entities utilize WANs to relay data among employees, clients, buyers, and suppliers from various geographical locations. In essence, this mode of telecommunication allows a business to effectively carry out its daily function regardless of location. The Internet can be considered a WAN as well, and is used by businesses, governments, organizations, and individuals for almost any purpose imaginable.
Related terms for other types of networks are personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs), campus area networks (CANs), or metropolitan area networks (MANs) which are usually limited to a room, building, campus or specific metropolitan area (e.g., a city) respectively." [Wide area network. Wikipedia]
The example "Design elements - Cisco WAN" is included in the Cisco Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
