The satellite images that form the base layer of this map were stitched together from many different sources. They were captured in various years, and at different times of the year. You may see images that show the land during the rainy season, and other images that show the land during the dry season. Sometimes the way the land looks in the images will change when you zoom in and out, and sometimes you may see two different images right next to each other that show the way the land looked at different times. The map does not show what the land looks like right now, and you should not rely on it to navigate or make judgements about how features shown on the map look today.

Administrative boundaries (Communes) are based on 2014 data from the Centre Suivi Ecologique. Villages and major roads were digitized from 1:200,000 Sénégal maps -- ND-28-XXIII,ND-28-XXIV,ND-28-XVII,ND-28-XVIII,ND-28-XI,and ND-28-XII (Direction des Travaux Géographiques et Cartographiques, 2005). All other data was collected from 2011-2014 by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Senegalese research assistants with funding provided by the Bureau for Economic Growth, Agriculture and Trade of the United States Agency for International Development under the terms of grant No. EEM-A-00-10-00001. This grant was managed by the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Adapting Livestock Systems to Climate Change. Director of this mapping project is Professor Matthew Turner, Department of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Madison (UWM). Contributors to the project include: John McPeak (Syracuse University), Erin Kitchell(UWM), Mame Astou Diagne(Sénégal), Mohammed Fodé Mandiang (Sénégal), Pathé Thiongane (Sénégal), Mamadou Thioube(Sénégal), Niwaeli Kimambo (UWM), Kramer Gillin(UWM),Emmanuel Urey (UWM) and Sarah Scott (UWM).
