OCHA is the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and one of its multiple mandates is the coordination of humanitarian response, policy development and humanitarian advocacy. To accomplish this mission OCHA produces, prints and distributes a wide range of geographic and thematic maps.
Nowadays, OCHA works in cooperation with the Urban Development Authority and the Survey Department of Sri Lanka to provide accurate maps of the country. An important achievement of this cooperation is the OCHA SRI LANKA MAP ATLAS, which is a collection of all the main public map products created by OCHA Sri Lanka since 2005. MAP ATLAS offers users both interactive and static maps with the possibility to browse through a full catalogue of all available products. Additional links to web based resources are also provided.
