The World map with coordinates represents the location in the form of coordinates. It means your present living location has fixed coordinates on the world map. Coordinates are the unique points, and it remains set for each point on earth. If you are moving from one location to another, you will need the coordinates. Here in the article, we will provide our users with a  world map with coordinates. The map would depict the coordinates of the earth for different locations.

As we know that the world map shows the overall layout of the earth, and we refer to it to witness the visual information of the world. Coordinates on the world map make it more specific to the users. In other words, coordinates represent a particular location on the world map. For instance, there are the fixed coordinates of the USA on the world map, which you need to use to get into the USA.
Similarly, there are coordinates for all other countries and even small remote locations. Coordinates are useful in marking the areas on the surface of the earth. So, this is how coordinates have a vital link on the world map. Coordinates world maps have some usages around the world.

Countries of the World according to their Continents

The exact number of countries globally is a more hotly debated subject. A country is defined as a nation or sovereign state with its independent government or as an area of land that forms a separate political unit with its government. As of November 2021, the United Nations recognizes 195 countries worldwide. One hundred ninety-three of these countries are members of the United Nations (UN). Two countries are not: Vatican City/Holy See and the State of Palestine, both of which are classified as non-member observer states.
However, U.N. membership is not the last word on the subject of nationhood. There also exist dozens of “territories” which are technically not countries because another nation rules them. Some of these territories are mainly independent but still part of another country—for instance, Greenland is part of Denmark, and Puerto Rico is officially part of the United States (though not a state).
Even more confusingly, some would-be countries have declared their independence but haven’t yet been officially recognized by enough members of the United Nations (U.N.) and so are technically still considered territories, not countries. For example, Kosovo is treated as its own independent country by some U.N. members but still treated as part of Serbia by others. Another example is Taiwan (also known as the Republic of China), which was its sovereign state until it was subsumed by mainland China, which prevents any attempt by the United Nations to reinstate Taiwan’s full country status. Many territories of all types will be included on this list but will be marked to distinguish them from the U.N.-recognized countries.
The final point regarding this particular list of countries per continent: A few countries bridge the gap between two continents, such as Russia (Europe/Asia), Cyprus (Europe/Asia), and Egypt (Africa/Asia).

Africa

Africa has a total of 54 countries, the most of any continent. The most populous of these countries is Nigeria, which has more than 211 million people. The largest country by land area in Africa is Algeria, which spans over 919,595 mi² (2,381,741 km²). Africa also has one of the world’s best-known transcontinental countries, Egypt, whose northeastern corner extends into Asia. Below are the 54 countries in Africa in alphabetical order:

Asia

Asia has the second-highest number of countries of any continent, but exactly how many that is can be tricky to determine. The United Nations recognizes 49 countries in Asia, the most widely accepted number. However, depending upon which territories one recognizes and which intercontinental countries one includes, Asia could have as few as 45 or 53 countries.
The most populous country in Asia (and the world) is China, with more than 1.4 billion people. The largest country by land area is Russia, which is 6.6 million square miles (17.125 million square kilometers)—however, because 78% of its people live in the European part of the country, Russia is generally considered a European country.
Asia is the continent with the most significant number of transcontinental countries, including Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, and (surprisingly to many) Egypt; some are counted as Asian, and some of which are not. Similarly, Cyprus is geographically located close to Asia’s Middle East region but is widely considered a European country.
Finally, Asia also includes several partially recognized and disputed territories, such as Taiwan (claimed by China), Palestine (disputed territory), and China’s two “Special Administrative Regions,” Hong Kong and Macau. Below are all of the countries and territories in Asia, listed alphabetically:
