Map of Irrigation World Wide

"The Global Map of Irrigation Areas" (PDF) is a poster presentation about the spatial distribution of irrigation worldwide.

The poster does a good job speaking for itself so I will spare you the details. But notice how South and East Asia, the United States, and Europe compare to Africa on an irrigation level. Other things are noticeable too. Australia only can irrigation in the eastern portion of the country. And compare the eastern United States to the western United States (but look how the Central Valley of California is so heavily irrigated).
