This category includes raster data formats of low resolution images (e.g. NOAA, scanned maps, DEM for Somalia, MODIS satellite images at 250 meter resolution) and other datasets listed below:

  1. NOAA AVHRR 1 kilometer resolution satellite data
  2. MODIS 250 meter resolution satellite data
  3. DEM for Somalia derived from ASTER satellite images (90m resolution)
  4. DEM for Somalia derived from ASTER satellite images (30m resolution)
  5. DEM for the Juba and Shabelle rivers derived from aerial photography
  6. Scanned maps for specific areas and topics (e.g. Geology, topomaps, clan distribution,  Tactical Pilotage Chart etc) in Somalia and the larger Horn of Africa Environmental data from the Africa Monitoring of Environment for Sustainable Development (AMESD) station, which include  Vegetation Index (NDVI), Land Surface Temperature(LST), Albedo, Dry Matter Productivity (DMP), Leaf Area Index (LAI), Small Water Bodies (SWB), vegetation production index(VPI), active fire (burnt areas), Rainfall Estimates (RFE), alitmetry parameters and surface wind vector.


An offline collection of the data is provided in an external drive labelled "SWALIM Raster & Vector Data". Please contact SWALIM by e-mail to access this datasets(swalim@fao.org).
