NIGERIA IN MAPS
The primary objective of these maps is to enlighten visitors/general public about topical issues that are of concern to Nigerians and those interested in Nigeria.
These maps have been carefully designed with the purpose of appealing to individuals who would hitherto have found little interest in a particular topic or subject of discussion.
Content communicated via these maps are not only factual but verifiable. All data sources are publicly displayed for quick and easy verification.
Static maps display only a limited amount of information hence the need for interactive maps. Discover more in-depth information by a single click on any part of an interactive map. This has proven to not only be enlightening but fun as well.
About Nigeria In Maps
The idea of Nigeria in Maps was borne out of the burning desire to stir people’s consciousness about Nigeria through interesting, factual and interactive (coming soon) maps.
Many Nigerians may be quite familiar with the information being relayed via these maps. However, only a few may have had the opportunity of visualizing such info in a map-and-caption format.
With the proliferation in publicly available data on the internet; the challenge of soaking in vast amount of data may be overwhelming for many, especially when delivered in complex graphs and spreadsheets.
In a bid to increase interest and availability of information about Nigeria and Nigerians to the general public; such complex data is crunched and displayed in simplified maps for everyone; be they young or old.
