    The HoA Refugee Database, produced by the Humanitarian Information Unit of the U.S. Department of State, is a compilation of the UN High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR) population and demographic data reports for refugee camp populations in the Horn of Africa Region. Dadaab Camp in Kenya and Dollo Ado camp of Ethiopia are the focus; there are seven sites within Dadaab: Dagahaley Camp, Hagadera Camp, Ifo Camp, Ifo 2 East Camp, Ifo 2 West Camp, and Camp Kambioos, and five sites within Dollo Ado: Bokolmanyo Camp, Melkadida Camp, Kobe Camp, Hilaweyn Camp, and Buramino Camp. The HoA Refugee Database originated in July of 2011 and the current release is through December 2011. The HoA Refugee Database includes several demographic variables of populations within the refugee camps, including: individual population, household counts, gender, age and nationality.

    Data as of June 11, 2015. The "Syria Refugee Sites" dataset contains verified data about the geographic location (point geometry), name, and operational status of refugee sites hosting Syrian refugees in Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq. Only refugee sites operated by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or the Government of Turkey are included. Compiled by the U.S Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit (INR/GGI/HIU), each attribute in the dataset (including name, location, and status) is verified against multiple sources. The name and status are obtained from the UNHCR data portal (accessible at http://data.unhcr.org/syrianrefugees/regional.php). The locations are obtained from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's GEOnet Names Server (GNS) (accessible at http://geonames.nga.mil/ggmagaz/). The name and status for each refugee site is verified with PRM. Locations are verified using high-resolution commercial satellite imagery and/or known areas of population. Additionally, all data is checked against various news sources. Locations are only accurate down to the city level. The designation field gives the type of site and the status of the site. Sites can be "Official Camps", camp settlements that are officially established and maintained by the United Nations or host country. Sites can also be "Transitional Camps", which is a typical camp structure but designed to be temporary or used on as needed basis. There can also be "Transitional Facilities"; these are facilities that are being used to temporarily house refugees. Status of these sites can be Planned, Under Construction, Staged, Open, or Closed. The data contained herein is entirely unclassified and is current as of 11 June 2015. The data is updated as needed.

    Data as of early 2016. The "Syria IDP Sites" dataset is compiled by the U.S. Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit (INR/GGI/HIU). This dataset contains open source derived data about the geographic locations (point geometry) of identified tent camps and other locations, such as collective centers, schools, mosques, sports facilities, host families, etc. in towns inside Syria where displacement has taken place. Sources of this information include the United Nations, the Assistance Coordination Unit, the Syria Needs Assessment Project, NGOs, and media reports. Location coordinates are at the city level and are plotted using the Syria P-Code system (http://www.mapaction.org/map-catalogue/mapdetail/2753.html) and NGA GEOnet Names Server (http://earth-info.nga.mil/gns/html) datasets. The field "PCode" is a combination of the all the administrative level and community level P-Codes for a specific location. Camp locations are verified using high-resolutions commercial satellite imagery. In the "Designation" field "IDP Site" refers to informal or formal settlements for specific IDP use. This dataset will be updated as needed and is current as of late June 2015. This dataset is primarily hosted on the State GeoNode, the open geographic data platform of the U.S. Department of State.

    Data as of March 8, 2013. These boundary lines were derived from the World Vector Shoreline dataset and match up with the 2013 detailed LSIB polygons. The 1:250,000 scale World Vector Shoreline (WVS) coastline data is generally shifted by several hundred meters to over a km. To simplify the polygons, the ArcGIS Simplify Polygon tool was used, using the Bend Simplify algorithm with a maximum allowable offset of 3 miles. Topology was then corrected for any errors produced by the simplification process. For convenience, the dataset is broken out into regions: (1) Africa, (2) Asia and Russia, (3) Europe and Southwest Asia, (4) North America, (5) Oceania, and (6) South America. In the zip file, there is also a global dataset (approximately 24 MBs) that includes all the data. There are no restrictions on use of this public domain data. This dataset will be updated as needed and is current as of March 08, 2013.

    The "LSIB Geographic Thesaurus" enables integration of multiple datasets across different country codes, including the FIPS and ISO standard codes. This geographic thesaurus streamlines integration of datasets from multiple sources. This thesaurus includes the following codes: FIPS, ISO Alpha-2, ISO Alpha-3, ISO Numeric, NATO Stanag, and ccTLD. Although this thesaurus was compiled by the U.S. Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit, the codes themselves are managed by their respective organizations. The data contained herein is entirely unclassified and is current as of 20 March 2015. The data is updated as needed.
