Arab Spatial is an interactive mapping and charting tool covering nations of the League of Arab States.

With this tool, users can quickly visualize, compare and monitor a wide-range of indicators on food security, poverty and development across the Arab World. The tool focuses on monitoring the region's progress towards two frameworks: The Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) framework and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework.

In the MAP portal, indicator overlays can be displayed, including data source and description and the possibility to display the latest available data. The Catalog features direct links to selected indicator maps, while the List includes the full list of indicators available on Arab Spatial.

Countries covered in the atlas include: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Palestine (West Bank and Gaza), and Yemen.
