Data portal – Kenya coastal counties

This page presents numerous data outputs for the coastal counties Kenya which can be used in a number of planning purposes. Data are visualised as data dashboards and story maps, with spatial data layers and maps also accessible through Marine Spatial Atlas of the Western Indian Ocean (MASPAPWIO). Some visualisation examples are provided for Kwale and Lamu.

These tools are under development and are designed to support ongoing County processes such as the county spatial planning processes in Kwale and Lamu Counties. Feedback is welcomed on them to
