  • 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.

  • With the rainy season in South Sudan coming to an end in September of 2015, the United Nations (UN) Country Team and humanitarian actors required information to plan efficient delivery of assistance and protection to people in need. Due to challenging logistical conditions, it had not been possible to reach this population during the rainy season. The United Nations Institute for Training and Research ? Operational Satellite Applications Program (UNITAR-UNOSAT) developed a monitoring framework for South Sudan, in consultation with United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and other organizations working in the country. To support humanitarian assistance planning, UNITAR-UNOSAT conducted a qualitative analysis using high-resolution satellite imagery over portions of the Unity and Jonglei states in South Sudan (see Map 1). The analysis identified areas of destruction, looting, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and visible cattle, a potentially useful indicator of population and wealth distribution in these areas. Subsequently, UNITAR-UNOSAT performed a quantitative analysis of possible IDP shelters and estimated the number of potentially damaged structures within the same areas. This report outlines the methods and results of this analysis.
  • This map illustrates IDP settlements in Melut, Upper Nile State, South Sudan. Using high-resolution imagery optical satellite imagery collected by the WorldView-3 satellite on 2 December 2014, UNOSAT located 3,587 IDP structures (3,005 shelters and 582 Tukuls). The 6 distinct IDP settlements identified by UNOSAT occupy a total area of 86.09 ha. Of these, a total of 214 IDP structures are found within the Melut UNMISS Base, covering a total area of 1.84 ha. 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 damage density in and around the cities of Yei, Morobo and Koya, Nahr Yei district, South Sudan. Using satellite imagery acquired 05 March 2017, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified a total of 18,318 destroyed structures within an analysed area of about 3,640 square kilometers. Approximately 10'449 affected structures are found within Yei and along the four primary roads radiating from the city. About 7,870 destroyed structures are found along the road connecting the cities of Morobo and Koya. Most structures appear to be destroyed by fire. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
  • 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 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.
