Sudan Capacity Development in Geoinformation Management (WebGIS and Sudan Map Shop)

In early 2002, CDE began providing updated demarcation and geo-hydrological maps of the Nuba Mountains. In 2004, they followed this with provision of comprehensive geospatial databases and thematic maps to support peace missions undertaken by the international community in Darfur, Abyei, and Southern Sudan. As part of the project, a map shop and a web-based GIS tool were developed. More than 150,000 people have obtained information from the “Sudan Map Download Site” so far. Reports, hardcopy maps, digital map files, and individually compiled desktop maps are available.
