Korean Peninsula Classic
Korean Peninsula Map
The Korean Peninsula map depicts the rugged terrain using shaded relief and includes the elevation of prominent mountains and ocean depths in meters. It portrays both North and South Korea and uses the latest system for transcribing South Korean place-names from the Korean alphabet.
In great detail, the map delineates the latest administrative divisions of both countries along with July 27, 1953, Military Demarcation Line- the historic demarcation line between the two Koreas. It also portrays the transportation grid of both countries, including South Korea's high-speed passenger railway network.
Where is the Korean Peninsula?
The Korean Peninsula in East Asia is extended southwards for about 1,100 km (680 mi) from continental Asia into the Pacific Ocean. The peninsula is surrounded by the Sea of Japan (East Sea) to the east and the Yellow Sea (West Sea) to the west, and the Korea Strait connecting the two bodies of water.
North Korea lies between latitudes 37° and 43°N and longitudes 124° and 131°E. Japan lies to its east across the Sea of Japan and to its west are the Yellow Sea and Korea Bay. About 80% of the country is composed of mountains and uplands, separated by deep and narrow valleys.
