GPS use and mapping in humanitarian applications

About this site

General Logistics Planning Maps

The Logistics Cluster is a UN cluster led by the World Food Programme, WFP.  It provides logistical resource tools, including maps to the humanitarian community.  Generally the maps are presented in PDF format.  For each Logistics Cluster General Logistics Planning map MapToGround aims to supply supporting files for OziExplorerPC and OziExplorer for Android, a KMZ file and a georeferenced TIFF file.

The available maps are indexed by country below.  Further files will be included over time.  However, if there is a particular file you could use now then contact MapToGround with the name of your organization and MapToGround will (in all probability) provide the file.

The Logistics Cluster has given permission for the use of its maps on this site.
