Hydro Power Dot Ug!

Although there has been a lot of talk about East African oil these days, hydro is still king. 

Uganda has been building hydro power plants since 1954 and is now ramping up their construction efforts to meet domestic and regional need. Its hard to understand the extent of this without a visual graphic. If you know anything about Geo Gecko or me, you will know that graphic is going to be geographic. 

So we used the Ministry of Energy database to make this great map (download link 23MB) and some patterns became quite clear. See the slideshow to the right for more.
