The online map of drought affected population by province in China in 2016
comes from the Atlas of China's Natural Disasters in 2016.
This map was edited by the Office of the National Disaster Reduction Commission,
the Disaster Relief Department of the Ministry of Civil Affairs,
and the National Disaster Reduction Center of the Ministry of Civil Affairs,
and was published by China Map Publishing House.
The Atlas of China's Natural Disasters in 2016 is the sixth volume
of the Atlas of China's Natural Disasters series.
In terms of layout design,
it continues the concept of Atlas of Natural Disasters 2011-2015 in China,
continues to adopt the current international popular simplicity style,
and fully uses composite colors and combined symbol
expression methods combining the characteristics of natural disasters,
so as to have both the readability of the content,
the aesthetics of the overall layout,
and the objectivity of information transmission.
In terms of content setting, in addition to the
traditional analysis of disaster situations and
temporal and spatial characteristics, an attempt
to analyze the disaster situation, monthly disaster
situation distribution characteristics, and relative
loss index in key regions of the “Belt and Road” has
also been added.
The semicircle in the map indicates the population is affected,
and the larger the semicircle, the more severely affected the population.
In the map, the orange semicircle indicates the affected population,
and the green semicircle indicates the population who have difficulty drinking water.
Data on Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau is temporarily unavailable.
