Following the devastating earthquake that hit Afghanistan on the night of June 21st, we are creating maps and insights into  impact of the earthquake. The location of the domestic compounds is from our 2019 dataset of every domestic compound in the country.  This interactive map currently shows the locations of settlements within the affected area and roads, by type.  More data will be added to build it out more.
