Mapping Monday: Introducing Cabo Verde

A map of Cabo Verde

When the United Nations announced the name change of Cape Verde to Cabo Verde this past October, we at National Geographic hopped into action to update our maps to reflect this new reality. See the result in our 1-page map series at the following link. All maps in our 1-page map series can be customized and downloaded for your use.
