The Syria Humanitarian Atlas is a useful tool for humanitarian organizations working on the Syria Crisis to facilitate the planning and implementation of activities on the ground. The atlas provides maps at the community level, as well as city maps which include neighborhood boundaries and key landmarks. A standard unique code (Pcode) is assigned to each city or village or neighborhood; essential for data sharing across organizations and sectors. The search capacity by locality is particularly helpful.
This 3-page map is a comprehensive overview of the humanitarian situation in Syria and Iraq as a result of conflict throughout 2016, and the years prior. Page 1 highlights humanitarian access and internally displaced persons (IDPs) throughout Iraq and Syria, with a timeline of key events in 2016; page 2 includes 4 inset maps of major flashpoints of conflict and displacement in 2016; and page 3 is a comprehensive summary of displacement inside Iraq/Syria and all of the surrounding refugee-hosting nations (including Europe).
