Maps of Darfur, Sudan in Ball State University Libraries

New Map of Darfur Region of Sudan in Ball State University Libraries

Sudan ordered a number of international aid agencies expelled from the country Wednesday after the International Criminal Court at the Hague issued a warrant for the country’s president for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The president’s arrest is related to the deadly violence against the people of the region of Darfur in western Sudan.

The Geospatial Resources & Map Collection acquired a new map of the region of Darfur (shown above). The map was printed by the Central Intelligence Agency and shows relief of the region, airfields, roads and cities.

Maps of the Sudan and Darfur in the GRMC are not fully cataloged and may not be located in the CardCat system, so please visit or contact the GRMC to review the complete collection of maps. This map circulates for two weeks or longer.
