Africa Continent Information:
Africa is a continent south of Europe, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean.
Map of the African Continent:This map of Africa includes most of the Mediterranean Sea and portions of southern Europe. It also includes most countries of the Middle East. It presents the continent in the form of a Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area Projection. It views the Earth from a point located directly above 10 degrees north latitude and 20 degrees east longitude. It is what you would see from a satellite located immediately above that point and high enough above the Earth to see the entire map area. It is made by projecting all points on Earth's surface up to the satellite and recording them on a horizontal plane that is tangent to Earth's surface directly below the satellite. This type of projection best preserves the relative size and area of features on Earth's surface.
