Australia Map

Australia is known to be officially named as the Commonwealth of Australia. Being a sovereign country that is comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, as well as the island of Tasmania and many other different small islands, it is known to be the largest country in Oceania.

Australia is the world's sixth-largest country taking into consideration its total area. Australia’s neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Indonesia, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, as well as New Zealand. Australia's capital is Canberra while its largest city is Sydney.

Having the world's 13th-largest economy as well as the tenth-highest per capita income, Australia is ranked highly in quality of life, health, economic freedom, civil liberties, political rights and education. Enabling anyone to create a map of Australia, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software was developed.

To simplify the work of drawing the maps of Australia in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application, the Australia Map solution can be used, including its collection of scalable graphics that is known to be representing the political geography of Australia, splitting into distinct state maps.

Each of the available maps offers many details that can be added to the maps so it becomes possible to show this country’s sub-divisions as well as its local government areas. Being focused on the main cities and the capital, the maps of Australia can be created by edited the pre-made templates.

In order to develop their international business any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user might find the Australia Map solution useful in terms of saving time on creating the maps from a scratch using the already previously made examples instead.

States and territories maps of Australia

When European explorers and settlers reached Australia's shores, they brought with them the style of social structure, politics and governance from their homelands. Early settlements became colonies, some of which would form the foundations of modern day Australian cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. These colonies began to divide the mainland (and certain surrounding islands) into distinct territories — initially their boundaries were ever-changing, but by the end of the 1800s they eventually settled with the formation of six states that have remained largely unchanged to this day.

With Australia no longer serving solely as a penal colony for British convicts, and more and more migrants reaching the country, population and infrastructure expanded rapidly, leading to a call to unify the individual territories under one flag. After some negotiations, the six member states were ratified under the Commonwealth of Australia, that although still holding strong ties with the United Kingdom, would be largely self governing. In the 120 years since this unification, the political map of Australia has been consistent; the following is a list of the six states that comprised the nation then and now:

  • South Australia
  • New South Wales
  • Queensland
  • Victoria
  • Western Australia
  • Tasmania

There are also 3 self governing territories — Northern Territory, Jervis Bay Territory, and the Australian Capital Territory, which is something like the USA's Washington DC. Over the years, Australia has also grouped several island chains under the Commonwealth, resulting in seven extra external territories.

The distinct and long standing territories, aligned with interesting geological features across a wide expanse, make thematic maps an ideal way of presenting geological, geographical or political information relating to Australia. A thematic map studies a particular theme or subject area in relation to a particular location — often the focus is on the distribution and spatial variation of whatever data is being analysed.

Thematic maps lack a certain level of detail — they often do not show features such as road networks or contours, but instead tend to use a basic political map as the foundation, with an added layer of data to give context. A common example is a map of population density. Using Australia in this instance, the map would consist of a basic outline with state borders, and some form of dot distribution to indicate population. The more dots condensed in one area, the more populous it is — looking at Australia we would see a large collection of dots spread along the (particularly South) coast, while the center of the map (the Australian Outback) would be relatively clear.

A geospatial infographic goes one step further than a thematic map, in that it can tackle a broader range of subjects and use a more dynamic visual style to get its message across. The idea behind an infographic is to tell the viewer a story about that subject, perhaps answering a posed question or using statistics to back up a more general statement. Rather than just focussing on one set of data, such as Australia's population density as used in the last example, an infographic can expand on linked causes and effects — health issues, pay disparities or political leanings for example.

There are few limits on how this information is presented, only that visual techniques are used to present the data in a way that is easily identifiable and understandable, and that a coherent argument is made.

The way geospatial and social data is collected now results in reams of data that is impenetrable to a casual viewer. Thematic maps and infographics have risen to prominence as effective ways of collating this data, and breaking it down into manageable pieces that are conducive to sharing through social media streams. At CS Odessa, we recognize the fact that working with complicated data while trying to express this creatively through original diagrams represents a challenge, particularly with the fast moving trends and deadlines that many are bound to. We constantly endeavour to provide the solutions to these problems.
