Malawi - Admin boundaries (GAUL) (geonode:gaul_malawi_poly)

The Global Administrative Unit Layers (GAUL) is an initiative implemented by FAO within the CountrySTAT and Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS) projects. The GAUL compiles and disseminates the best available information on administrative units for all the countries in the world, providing a contribution to the standardization of the spatial dataset representing administrative units. The GAUL always maintains global layers with a unified coding system at country, first (e.g. departments) and second administrative levels (e.g. districts). Where data is available, it provides layers on a country by country basis down to third, fourth and lowers levels. The overall methodology consists in a) collecting the best available data from most reliable sources, b) establishing validation periods of the geographic features (when possible), c) adding selected data to the global layer based on the last country boundaries map provided by the UN Cartographic Unit (UNCS), d) generating codes using GAUL Coding System and e) distribute data to the users (see TechnicalArticleG2014.pdf). Because GAUL works at global level, unsettled territories are reported. The approach of GAUL is to deal with these areas in such a way to preserve national integrity for all disputing countries (see TechnicalArticleG2014.pdf and G2014_DisputedAreas.dbf). GAUL is released once a year and the target beneficiary of GAUL data is the UN community and other authorized international and national partners. Data might not be officially validated by authoritative national sources and cannot be distributed to the general public. A disclaimer should always accompany any use of GAUL data.

Small Area Estimates of Poverty and Inequality (SAEPI) database (geonode:mwilv3)

The Small Area Estimates of Poverty and Inequality dataset consists of spatially referenced consumption-based measures of poverty and inequality for subnational administrative areas of various countries throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America. These measures are derived, on a country-level basis, from a combination of census and survey data using small area estimation techniques developed for poverty mapping. The collection of data sets have been compiled, integrated and standardized from the original data providers into a unified, spatially referenced and globally consistent dataset. The collection is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with a number of external data providers.

Roads OSM (geonode:roads)

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. The maps are created using data from portable GPS devices, aerial photography, other free sources or simply from local knowledge. Both rendered images and the vector graphics are available for download.

Paths - OSM (geonode:paths_osm)

A generic path, either multi-use or unspecified usage, open to all non-motorized vehicles. The path may have any type of surface. This includes walking and hiking trails, bike trails and paths, horse and stock trails, mountain bike trails as well as combinations of the above. Also included are other modes of transportation like local and regional trail infrastructure non appropriate for motor-vehicles in more remote areas of the world.

Drought Events [UNEP-GRID] (geonode:dr_events_unepgrid_mw)

This dataset includes an estimate of global drought annual repartition based on Standardized Precipitation Index. It is based on two sources: 1) A global monthly gridded precipitation dataset obtained from the Climatic Research Unit (University of East Anglia). 2) A GIS modeling of global Standardized Precipitation Index based on Brad Lyon (IRI, Columbia University) methodology. This product was designed by UNEP/GRID-Europe for the Project of Risk Evaluation, Vulnerability, Information & Early Warning (PreView). It was modeled using global data. Credit: UNEP/GRID-Europe.
