Kismayo City Map; Version 2.0

WhyKismayo_0130702

Kismayo, the port city at the southern tip of Somalia, is key to the future of the country. Click here to access an infographic explaining why.

However, only old or incomplete maps exist in the public domain. Geo gecko is filling this gap and has created the below map for all to use.

 

KismayoInset

This is the second draft of the Kismayo city map. This version is a larger scale and includes the new airport and old airstrip, photos of landmarks and inset maps showing somali admin divisions and populated places. (See Version 1.0 here)

This map will be updated periodically so Geo Gecko requests the assistance from those who know the city. Please inform us about important landmarks, corrections to existing data,  businesses or photos of relevant infrastructure or sites. General comments are also much appreciated.

You can submit changes via Wikimapia, Google maps engine lite or Google earth.
