Our mapping project has teamed up with the new Congo Research Group, based at New York University’s Center on International Cooperation. From the October 2015 version onwards, maps feature a newly developed methodology with several rounds of peer-review.
Notes on the below, older mapping exercises:
The indicated areas represent zones of influence, not necessarily full control, for the indicated snapshots, i.e. points of time (click on the respective maps to see in full size). Changes in the subsequent maps reflect either changes on the ground or (for the time being) refinements relating to improved information. This exercise does not entail any claim of full accuracy and merely represents an approximate assessment of the situation with uncertainty and potential errors always remaining.
