Pcode is an abbreviated term for 'Place Code'. P-codes are similar to zip codes and postal codes and are part of a data management system that provides unique reference codes to over a thousand locations in the Darfur region. These codes provide a systematic means of linking and exchanging data and analysing relationships between them. Any information that is linked to one location with a pcode can be linked and analysed with any other.
