OCHA area of interest shapefiles
In process of being released.
UN-SPIDER Map Products
Collection of map products produced for the response. Would need to look in detail at data sources for each to see if use is allowed.
Archival Data Sets
Previously collected, and maybe more useful right now. Should all be free and clear to import.
- Roads - DEPHA
- Admin Boundaries (need to determine current status of OSM dataset before doing anything here) - Africover
According to Wonderchook, the data from Somalia cannot be found (Humanitarian OSM Team/Chat Aug 10 2011).
- University of Texas Map Room Online Maps (UT doesn't put copyrighted maps online, so all of these should be good)
We are in the process of importing roads from the Mad Mappers dataset.
See Somalia/Roads for details.
This import requires (JOSM expert) volunteers help out with checking and merging in data. If you know how to do this kind of thing, join in! (See Somalia/Roads)
