Relief Map-2
Annual Rainfall Relief Map-3

Answer:

Yes, these maps are correlated as they show that the nature of relief and the amount of annual rainfall are the main determinants of the population density in a region. The areas which have high population density are those areas which have plains and high annual rainfall. These areas have fertile soil for good agriculture that's why more people prefer to live in such areas. Desert or hilly areas have the least population because these areas have extreme weather conditions, less rainfall, and infertile soil which make the place unsuitable for habitation.
