To support the aid work of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW)  to respond to the famine in East Africa -the worst to be seen in the region in more than 60 years- DLR/ZKI produced maps of the Dolo Ado, Ethiopia region showing the refugee camps along the Genale river between Dolo Ado and Bokol Mayo in Ethiopia.  These geographic reference maps support the recent activation GERS 096 and are based on Landsat-5 data acquired on January 25, 2010. The maps that are available are as follows:
