About

My name is Jacob Bogle and AccessDPRK is a project I began in 2012 to map all of North Korea, and to help expose the hermit kingdom through satellite imagery. Since then, I have created the largest and most comprehensive map of the country ever released to the public with over 53,000 places mapped (Phase II), written dozens of articles, and released various other data sets.

I have a lot of other large & small projects in mind that cover military, economic, and cultural topics, but at this point, I need your help to enable to me to keep up the amount of work this project takes. Research materials, subscription-based sources, and the occasional costly image purchase all take resources.

I'm working on adding additional tiers.
