This map is an effort, by Hanson and Robinson, to estimate the area of Ahmad al-Kabir's dominion about 1881, in contrast to the map entitled Umarian Domain, 1862, which represents the Umarian territories at their maximum extent, for a brief period in 1862. This map, published in 1991, is based on a map in Robinson, Holy War, p 19, and a map drawn by Valliere, part of the Gallieni mission, and appearing in Joseph Gallieni, "Mission dans le Haut-Niger et a Segou," Bulletin de la Societe de Geographie (Paris), 3 (1882). This map contains the following captions, "Map 2. The Umarian Domain in about 1881" "R.
