Burma/Myanmar Maps

Post by Burmacuda » Mon Jul 02, 2012 6:22 pm

I'm a map freak so thought I'd start this topic to share interesting maps on the country, states, provinces, towns etc. I'll kick it off with this province/state map:

There's a very high concentration of dams to be constructed in the North, which seems disproportionate. Is the purpose for something like hydro electricity, or is it simply for water supply?
