The devastating earthquake that hit Afghanistan on the night of June 21st struck in some of the most difficult to reach places.  We are creating maps, which we hope will help the humanitarian efforts to reach people as quickly as possible.  For example this map shows the distance of domestic compounds to paved roads.  The data is taken from our 2019 domestic compound data that includes every house in Afghanistan.  There are more maps here
