I played around with multiple mapping layers and was drawn to a layer of data called the “Sri Lanka Coconut Triangle” which you can visit here.
I was extremely intrigued by what the context was behind this benign shape on the western side of Sri Lanka. Obviously, the major part of Sri Lanka’s coconut production comes from this highlighted zone as the map title mentions. Unfortunately there weren’t many statistics about coconut production specifically in the context of GDP, economic growth or share of the agricultural sector. However, I did end up learning a large amount of information about Sri Lanka’s economic landscape.
