Everything is connected - from local level livelihood to the arctic ice melt. Therefore it is important to have a broader perspective of different sectors to understand their behaviors and connections. To pursue this, DOT 'N' ARC has been developing this Atlas to present spatial distribution of social, economic, infrastructural and environmental phenomena of Bangladesh. We hope these maps will be very useful for your development projects, research works and educational purposes.
You might have not seen many of these science quality, design-consistent maps in a single basket before, and may crave to munch few for your project!
You can buy each map (free of water-mark with crispy full resolution) or the entire atlas with your institutional/organizational license and logo.
