Full Answer

The World Atlas map of Ecuador gives details of the country's topography with color coding to show the lowlands, hills and mountains. The map shows the Andes Mountains that travel down the middle of the country with lowlands on Ecuador's west coast and eastern borders. The map also points out the main rivers, including the Daule, Esmeraldas, Zamora, Pastaza and Napo. According to the map, Sangay National Park lies in the middle of the mountain range in the center of the country, with Yasuni National Park located in the northeast and the Podocarpus National Park located in Ecuador's southern tip.

Ecuador is a country located on the west coast of South America; the equator runs through Ecuador's northern tip. The country encompasses over 109,000 square miles, much of which are Andean uplands, jungles and coastal plains. The uplands contain most of the farmland, although bananas are exported worldwide from the coastal plains. The Galapagos Islands bring in revenue from tourism while the Oriente jungles are rich in oil.
