An economic map is a map that depicts different economic events or activities that happen in a certain area. A range of symbols and colours that are associated with specific economic activity are used on this style of map.
The goal of general economic maps is to summarise entire economies. These maps depict a sizable area along with its economic regions, territorial production complexes, economic hubs, economic ties, levels of economic development, and levels of production specialisation.
Natural resources and labour resources may also be depicted on economic maps as elements of economic activity. The earliest hand-drawn economic maps originally appeared in Russia in the latter part of the 17th century.
