Map of Indonesia (Java)

 

Map of Indonesia (Java) with surrounding areas. - Landkarte von Indonesien (Java). - Mapa de Indonesia (Java). - Carte de l'Indonésie (Java).

 



Indonesia's capital is Jakarta, which is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Indonesia usually go to either Bali or Jakarta. Most people live in Java (Jawa), other important islands are Sumatra (Sumatera), Borneo (Kalimantan), Sulawesi, Halmahera, Neuguinea (Irian Jaya), Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba, Flores, Alor, Wetar and Timor (West).
Java (in Indonesia Jawa) is by far the most and densest populated island. The biggest cities are Jakarta, Bandung, Tegal, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surakarta, Surabaya and Malang. The neighbouring islands are Sumatra (= Sumatera) in the west (on the way to Sumatra we find the small volcanic island of Krakatau), Belitung and Kalimantan (Borneo) in the north, and Madura, Bawean, Bali and Lombok in the east. South of Java there is only the Indian Ocean, with Christmas Island, which belongs to Asutralia, being located at a considerable distance south of Jakarta.

The official language of Indonesia is Indonesian (bahasa Indonesia). Besides there are many other languages spoken, but none is officially recognized, some are even heavily suppressed by the government (for example Papua languages in Irian Jaya/New Guinea).
Tourism is of regionally high in Indonesia, for example in Bali. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Indonesia.

This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.

The map can be ordered for 11.50 Euros (+ postage and packing) at www.wissenladen.de.

 

Sources on which the information contained in this map is based:

 

The vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google Earth.

The official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.

Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.

The numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.

And the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
