Map United Aarab Emirates - Country Information
Map of United Arab Emirates - The United Arab Emirates, sometimes known simply as the Emirates, or the UAE, is an Arab country located in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf. The map of the United Arab Emirates borders Oman to the east, and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Iran and Qatar. The UAE is a federation of seven emirates, which are equivalent to principalities, and are each controlled by a hereditary emir, with a single national president. The UAE is strategically located to control the flow of crude oil out of southwest Asia and the Middle East. Most of the coastal region of the map of the UAE consists of salt pans that extend far inland. The largest natural harbour is at Dubai, which has become a site of great recent expansion and development, with ultra-modern and large construction projects a common sight. South and west of Abu Dhabi, which is the largest of the emirates, and constitutes about 87 percent of the land area of the UAE, vast, rolling sand dunes merge into the "Empty Quarter" region of Saudi Arabia.
