Western Sahara's capital is El Aaiun, which is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Western Sahara usually go to El Aaiun. Other important towns are As-Samarah, Bu-Jadur and Dakhlah.
The official language of Western Sahara is Arabic. In our map we have given the names of the localities in the Arabic script.
Tourism is of lower importance in Western Sahara. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Western Sahara.

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.
