  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in the UNMISS Malakal base as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite on 26 September 2015. Imagery acquired on this date shows that the IDP camp extent has increased compared with the previous UNOSAT analysis. Imagery also shows that shelters installed outside the UNMISS base are still increasing. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other structures which gives a total number of 536 Camp infrastructure buildings and 7,791 Shelter structures. As can be seen from the imagery, PoC 1, 2, 3 and 4 are the initial or old Protection of Civilians (PoC) zones, Sector 1 and 2 are the new PoC extensions while Sector 3 is a contingency area mainly for administrative structures and Sector 4 is void of any infrastructure at the moment. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates a landcover classification over Kalobeyei and Kakuma areas, Turkana Province, Kenya as derived from Landsat-8 multispectral imagery acquired the 08 March 2015 at 30m of pixel resolution. The classification is divided into 5 main classes: Savana and Sparse Vegetation, Sandy and alluvial soils with few vegetation, Baresoils and vegetated areas and riparian. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in Bor UNMISS Base and Protection of Civilian (PoC) areas, in Jonglei state, as seen by the WorldView-3 satellite on 8 October 2015. The IDP structures were moved from the old PoC area in the northeast of the base to the new PoC area found in the south, and currently all the IDP shelters are now entirely in the southern extension of the UNMISS base. There are currently 1,077 structures in the IDP settlement with 101 consisting of infrastructure buildings and 976 of shelter structures. A large part of the camp still remains unoccupied and this can be seen as the Contingency area. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates topographic features in the planned Kalobeyei site, Turkana County, Kenya using a Digital Elevation Model derived from imagery with 1m resolution. UNITAR-UNOSAT built water levels scenarios that represents the potentially affected areas along the modelled stream network assuming a static raising of waters of 1 meter, 2 meters and 3 meters. Streamlines and static water levels has been extracted from a Hydrologically Conditioned version of the DEM derived from WorldView-2 Imagery with 5 m resolution. The model shows spatial distribution of potential water levels in the basin based on the elevation extracted from the DEM but does not represent a current flood scenario. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Minkaman IDP site in Lakes State, South Sudan, as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite. As of 13 January 2016, UNOSAT analyses located a total of 17,216 structures which include 713 administrative buildings, 1,538 improvised shelters, 490 permanent structures, 1,438 semi-permanent structures, and 13,037 tent shelters. Previous analysis from 12 February 2015 indicated 12,960 shelters and thus the updated analyses indicates an increase of approximately 33.6% in the number of shelters. Note that IDPs sheltering under trees are not detected by this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in the UNMISS Malakal base as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite. As of 20 February 2016, 6,438 shelters as well as 228 infrastructure and support buildings were identified. Burned areas in sectors 1, 2 and 3 were also visible. A total of 2,839 structures were burned, including 96 camp infrastructure buildings and 2,743 shelters. As can be seen from the imagery, the number of structures in the initial Protection of Civilians (PoC) zones 1, 2, 3 and 4 has increased since the fire, and an additional area has been set up with shelters. Sectors 1 and 2 are newer PoC extensions with larger shelters, each holding up to 30 people. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Minkaman IDP site in Lake State, South Sudan, as seen by WorldView-1 satellite on 8 February and 12 February 2015. UNOSAT analyzed these images and located 12,349 shelters and 611 administrative buildings in the IDP site area. A previous UNOSAT analysis using an image from 24 November 2014 indicated 18,636 IDPs shelters, and thus the updated analysis represents a decrease of approximatively 33% in the number of shelters. Note that IDPs sheltering under trees are not detected by this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

Imagery acquired on 3 July 2014 showed approximately 13,492 shelters and 572 infrastructure or support buildings occupying multiple areas along the White Nile. Imagery also showed an area being prepared for accommodating new shelters. As of 1 September 2014 this ground has been partially covered by shelters as well as other areas of the IDP site, and approximately 16,364 shelters and 670 infrastructure or support buildings have been detected. Note that IDPs sheltering under trees are not detected by this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of damage in the town of Bentiu, South Sudan, resulting from ongoing violence in the area. Using an image collected 18 January 2014 by the WorldView-1 satellite, UNOSAT identified almost 1,200 destroyed structures in and around the town. Destruction is largely concentrated along the northern edge of the town along the Bahr al-Gazal river bank and primarily affects homes and related structures as well as some commercial buildings. Using pre-conflict building data UNOSAT estimates that about 8% of the structures in Bentiu are destroyed. This is a preliminary analysis and is based on an enhanced rapid analysis methodology. It has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates the camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the UNMISS base at Juba airport as seen by the WorldView-1, Pleiades and WorldView-2 satellites on 19 January 2014, 7 January 2014 and 28 December 2013. As of 28 December a significant portion of the airport is used by IDP?s shelters, occupying approximately 7 ha. Since then the camp extent has moderately increased its area. Imagery acquired on 19 January 2014 shows that the total area of IDP?s occupies 8.9 ha, compared to the 7.9 ha detected on 7 January 2014. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other structures. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates the camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the UNMISS base at Juba airport as seen by the WorldView-1, Pleiades and WorldView-2 satellites on 30 January, 19 January, 7 January 2014 and 28 December 2013. As of 28 December 2013 a significant portion of the airport was used by IDP?s shelters, occupying approximately 7 ha. Imagery acquired on 30 January 2014 shows that the total area of IDP?s occupies about 9 ha, compared to the 7.9 ha detected on 7 January 2014. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other structures. Analysis indicates the extent of the IDP camp on 30 January is largely unchanged from the previous analysis done using an image from 19 January 2014.
