Methodology

REACH / UNOSAT datasets and maps are produced using a variety of methods. In general, analysts closely review satellite imagery, often comparing two or more images together, and determine notable changes between the images. In this instance, analysts review best available imagery and manually digitize the footprints of individual refugee shelters.
