This map was produced by UNOSAT in support of the ongoing humanitarian operations across the Horn of Africa, and in response to the UN Security Council Resolution 1816 (2008) adopted 2 June 2008, and IMO resolution adopted 29 Nov. 2007 calling for continued monitoring of Somali pirate activity. A range of satellite data has been used in this analysis for the identification of coastal settlements and anchorage sites of suspected hijacked vessels. All piracy incident data has been obtained from public media sources. Note, this is an initial assessment and has not yet been independently validated in the field. Please send additions/corrections to UNOSAT. Map scale for A2: 1:58,000; Projection : UTM zone 39North, Datum: WGS-84.
