The population distribution of Ethiopia is based on a multiclass dasymetric population model taking into account popu lation/household census data and land cove/terrain data (slope) as distribution proxies. For the Somali region, only population figures at the Woreda level were available. Land cover data (WLRC) was the main dataset used for the multi-class weighting of population data in each zone. 0) Not populated: water bodies, wetland, bare land, degraded hills, river courses, swamp 1) Low population: closed and open forest, woodland, shrub and bush, riverine vegetation, Afro-alpine vegetation, savannah 2) Medium population: grassland, mining sites, large-scale investments (agriculture) 3) High population: agroforestry, cropland 4) Settlements: homestead plantation, settlements, built-up area Slope data are reclassified intopopulated (< 45 deg.) and non-popu lated (>= 45 deg.) zones. Final model verfication was done by calculating the "Zone Statistic" in ArcGIS and the deviation to the 2007 census data. The map contains various geographic feature classes (e.g. categories of roads, settlements) derived from a wide range of individu al data sources: Open Street Map data from https://osm axx.hsr.ch; terrain features (e.g. contour lines, hillshade) derived from https://www.eorc.jaxa.jp/ALOS/en/aw3d30/index.htm. Please use the scale bar for measurements on the map when resized to scales other than the original A0 pdf-format! The thematic 1:1,000,000/1:1,500,000 Overview Map Series best suits the needs of regional/ national project management and policy advice.
