Maps of Algeria

Peter Loud

Hi Guys,

In 1988 I worked in Indonesia with a French irrigation engineer. He was a dour, old guy, but he was brilliant and we got along very well. He had spent his life working in every country in the world, so it seemed. When I asked him which country he liked most he unhesitatingly answered Algeria.

I had almost forgotten this and assumed that Algeria was a coastal strip backed by some hills then endless miles of burning hot sand, the Sahara desert. This was until recently when I met an Algerian engineer. She, yes, she, completely changed my views when she told me of the high rock outcrops near Tamanrasset in the middle of the Sahara. I found some photographs and they were spectacular. I have yet to go there, so I have no photographs from Algeria, (the mosque to the left is in Afghanistan), however I suggest that you Google Tamanrasset, and you will see what I mean.

So I decided to make a map of this country to familiarise myself with it. I am still working on it and have not yet created a legend, but the elevations are in metres.
