Asia Continent Information:Asia is a continent in the eastern and northern hemispheres. It is located east of Europe, north of the Indian Ocean, and it is bordered on the east by the Pacific Ocean and on the north by the Arctic Ocean. Asia includes the Philippines Islands and Indonesia.
Map of the Asian Continent:In this map of Asia the continent is bisected by the 90 degrees east longitude line. It is a two-point equidistant projection with loci at 45 degrees north, 40 degrees east; and, 30 degrees north and 110 degrees east. Distances from these two points to any location on the map are correct. National Geographic has used this projection for all maps of Asia in their atlases since 1959. This type of map was selected to minimize distortion across the continent. It nicely shows all of Asia, the Middle East, most of Europe, and parts of Africa, Indonesia and Australia.
