Recognizing an information gap within existing road network datasets in the Southern Teknaf camps of Coxs Bazar District (Camps 24-27 and Nayapara Registered Camp), REACH dispached field teams to the area for a roads and paths mapping exercise from November 14-15, 2018. Areas within and on the edges of the camps were divided into grid cells, through which REACH field teams systematically traversed all paths while carrying GPS tracking devices.
This dataset was then merged with the existing OpenStreetMap (OSM) roads and paths dataset for the area to provide a comprehensive map of roads and footpaths in and around the camps for mapping and spatial analysis purposes. When present in this dataset, OpenStreetMap attributes and identifiers have been preserved.
This exercise was carried out with the support of European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO)
