The final goal of OPIDIN is to inform the people. This is done in several ways:

 The present website gives a full access to all the information for people who have access to internet.

 An Atlas of the floodplains of the Inner Niger Delta has been produced. It includes maps of flooded areas in the northern and southern delta at different water levels (Akka being the reference point). The Atlas is meant for people who don't have access to internet. It allows them to see which areas will be flooded after they have heard on the radio or by phone about the predicted peak flood level. The full content of the Atlas is integrated in the website (see floodviewer) and can also be downloaded as pdf file (14 MB).
