These datasets are intended for coordination and operations in humanitarian activities.
The purpose of this settlements list in particular is as a gazetteer for geographical reference. It is not intended as a cartographic source or as an authoritative reference list.
The list is derived from IOM's placename database, which is the most extensive currently maintained placename source available for Iraq, and provides compatability with IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM).
The list does NOT contain any designations of hierarchy (e.g. governorate / district capitals) or of size (e.g. settlement size or population size). Thus, the placenames refer to a variety of populated places including cities, towns, villages and neighbourhoods.
Arabic names are in the process of being added; some are included in this dataset.
