Data Description

The ADS is an internationally comparable set of digital maps at a scale of 1:1 million for every country in Africa. The ADS is an integration of map data from several GIS databases:

Roads, rivers, settlements, topography and other essential base map features were extracted from the Arc/Info version of the Digital Chart of the World (ESRI, Redlands, CA).

Data representing infrastructure, parks, forests, wetlands, and protected areas are from the Biodiversity Map Library (World Conservation Monitoring Center,Cambridge, UK).

Sub-national boundaries and population estimates are from the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (SantaBarbara, CA) were integrated with the DCW data sets.

Over twenty layers of data are available for most countries. The data are in ARC/INFO coverage format and can be used in ARC/INFO and ArcView.
