The two areas with irregular streets are Xamar Weyne (bottom left) and Shangani (top right). (The areas of the map labelled Amaruini and Scingani have been mis-identified as Xamar Weyne and Shangani). These area of settlement date back to the 9-10th century AD. The straight and wider streets were developed by the Italian colonial administration between 1900 and 1934. The Italian built railway line is visible on the top. It went from the port near Abdul Aziz, out to Afgoye on the Shebelli river.
