Published in 2005 by the CIA, this geopolitical and borer map of the East African Nation of Uganda shows the country in a period of relative stability, growth, and transition. This was a significant year for Uganda as it was the first time in over twenty years that multiple political parties were allowed to enter elections. The Nation gained independence from Britain in 1962 and maintained its commonwealth status. Uganda’s political history throughout the twentieth century was marred with military coups and dictatorships, making the production of the geopolitical maps crucial for United States Intelligence, Government, and Military leaders to develop accurate foreign policy strategies while maintaining diplomacy and stability throughout the region.
Uganda is noted for its diverse flora and fauna as well as a landscape that contains snow-capped peaks and a substantial portion of Lake Victoria, and lying in the Nile River Basin. Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa and the second largest lake in the world, second to Lake Superior. The lake was first sighted by British explorer John Speke on an expedition to find the source of the Nile sponsored by the Royal Geographic Society.
The distinct aesthetic of CIA produced maps is unrivaled for their accuracy and importance as tools for understanding regional cultures and potential conflicts with foreign powers. Their immediately recognizable style gives the viewer a glimpse into the essential processes that come with devising foreign policy, and this is an authentic piece of CIA cartographical history.
