Regions & Boundaries map data for South Africa

Regions & Boundaries map data provides a geographic breakdown of South Africa for visualisation and analysis purposes. Using GIS or mapping software, colours can be assigned to these regions to form a thematic map, also known as a choropleth map. Thematic maps are visually powerful and a simple but effective way to communicate a variable (e.g. sales figures) across a geographic area. Regions can be political/administrative, postcode or small areas often connected with a census. With seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries, this data product is ideal for international projects.

Further enabling geographic analysis, Regions & Boundaries for South Africa can also be supplemented with statistics such as socio-demographics, purchasing power and consumer profiles. This product is available in a number of popular GIS data formats.

The Republic of South Africa is situated at the southern tip of the continent of Africa, and is bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Eswatini and surrounds Lesotho. It is the most populous country which is located entirely south of the equator. The capital city is Pretoria, but Johannesburg is the largest.
South Africa is a parliamentary republic, divided into nine provinces. Unusually the President is both Head of State and Head of Government. A multi-ethnic society, known as “the rainbow nation”, 80% of South Africans are black African and the remaining population comprises European, Asian and multi-racial ancestry. South Africa’s constitution recognises eleven official languages, of which the top four are Zulu, Xhosa, Afrikaans and English.
Its recent history has been dominated by apartheid. Finally, after years of struggle by the ANC, the segregation and discriminatory laws enforced by the white minority government were repealed, and in 1994, South Africa became a liberal democracy with the entire population finally eligible to vote.
South Africa has the second largest economy in Africa, but is still considered a developing country. There is a high level of income inequality amongst the population, and poverty, crime and unemployment remain a challenge. It has an abundance of natural resources and main sectors of the economy are industry and service. Tourism is extremely important, and South Africa’s wine producing industry is thriving.
South African art comprises some of the oldest in the world. Literature born out of perilous times and struggles is important, along with traditional textiles and music, some of which has mixed with old Dutch folk styles. South African music, especially, is very diverse. Sport is an important feature in South African life.
It is an important regional power and a member of the United Nations, the G20 and the Commonwealth of Nations.
