Why use the Africa template set?

Some common problems you can face while searching for various industry sectors images are:

  • Hard to find a whole blank map or pull out a particular state out of it
  • Inconsistent look of slides if you use several resources
  • Unclear legal rights for using the map templates from Internet, e.g. author attribution is needed, or templates are only for non-commercial private use.
  • Maps may not be editable in PowerPoint
  • Images of lower visual quality (distorted edges)

With our infoDiagram Maps of African Countries set, we address all those issues.  Check the example slides below.
