  • This map illustrates satellite-detected fires and environmental damage at and around Al Qayyarah, approximately 60 Km south of Mosul, Iraq. The main frame shows fires and the oil spill as seen in imagery collected between 23 December 2016 and 24 January 2017. Marked in blue are fires that were detected in 23 December 2016 but appear inactive as of 24 January 2017. Insets on the left show the oil spill north of Al Qayyarah, detected with both radar and optical imagery from multiple dates. As seen in the imagery, the oil spill is very close to one of the streams which is incidentally a tributary to the Tigris River; therefore, it is possible that oil is spilling to the river. The spectral signature from thermal imagery also suggest that areas of the oil spill are on fire. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • Summary: A total of 324 spatially distinct IDP shelter concentrations were identified as of 24 November 2013 within Mogadishu, representing a decrease of 56 IDP sites since the last UNOSAT analysis which used an image from 13 June 2013. An estimate of the total number of IDP structures located in Mogadishu indicates a minimum figure of at least 55,000 mostly informal shelters. The number of IDP camps has significantly reduced in multiple areas of Mogadishu. This report is the sixth in a series of IDP analyses done by UNOSAT since 2011 and is based on a time-series analysis of shelter concentrations within the city of Mogadishu using multiple satellite images acquired between 30 March 2011 and 24 November 2013. This assessment has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates IDPs structure density in the Daynile and Dharkenley districts in Mogadishu, Somalia, as detected in a Pleiades satellite image collected on 9 October 2014. UNOSAT analysis detected a total of 34,806 IDPs structures in these areas, which includes 14,655 temporary housing structures, 213 tukul-style structures, 4,428 shelters and 15,510 buuls. It is likely that subtle differences between temporary housing structures and shelters will lead to significant confusion between those two classes, though the overall structural count is accurate. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT
  • This map illustrates IDP shelter changes near Doolow, Somalia as visible in satellite imagery acquired 15 September 2014. As of 15 September 2014, within Qansalay IDP settlement south west of Doolow, 904 shelters and 11 administrative buildings were detected and within Kabasa IDP settlement east of the city, 1,457 shelters and 20 administrative buildings were located and marked. Settlement conditions have changed greatly since previous analysis. As 3 March 2013, 99% of the shelters were improvised structures (buuls). As 15 September 2014, overall the number of detected shelters decreased but more importantly converted from improvised shelters into temporary housing or semi-permanent structures. 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 in Old City, Mosul, Ninawa Governorate, Iraq. Using satellite imagery acquired 16 June 2017, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified a total of 4,040 affected structures within this part of city. This marks an overall increase of 56% in damage affected structures from the assessment five days prior on 11 June. Approximately 196 of these were destroyed (5% of the total affected buildings), 2,107 severely damaged (52% of the total affected buildings) and 1,737 moderately damaged (43% of the total affected buildings). This marks a 28% increase in destroyed buildings, 17% in moderately damaged buildings and 121% severely damaged buildings from the 11 June assessment. The most heavily impacted area appears to be the Bab al-Tub neighbourhood (see inset). Due to the densely constructed nature of this part of the city, these values might be underestimated. 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 destroyed or otherwise damaged structures in Maungdaw and Buthindaung townships, Maungdaw District, Myanmar. The analysis found a total area of more than 160 thousand square meters of destroyed structures occurring between 25 September and 1 October 2017. This represents an increase of approximately 1% since last UNOSAT analysis with imagery collected on 25 September, when more than 20.5 square kilometers of destroyed structures were identified. Additionally, 6 fires were detected within the area between 25 September and 1 October 2017 by the MODIS and VIIRS sensors, with recent fire detections indicating destruction is likely ongoing. Most of the detected fires are located in the proximity of the affected areas as observed in the imagery collected 1 October. Finally, heavy cloud cover and haze during the period in question, indicates that destruction and fire detections are likely underestimated in 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 Bu Attniy North and Bu Attniy South neighborhoods of Benghazi City, Libya. Using satellite imagery acquired 04 and 19 April 2016 as well as 01 August 2015, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified a total of 1,701 potentially damaged structures in these neighborhoods. Approximately 573 of these were destroyed, 329 severely damaged, 496 moderately damaged, and 303 possibly damaged. A slightly higher margin of error is possible in this analysis due to utilization of multiple images and the uncontrolled nature of construction in Benghazi during the analysis timeframe. 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 displaced person settlements in the Daraa and Quneitra Governorates, Syria. Using satellite imagery collected between 3 November 2016 and 7 June 2017, covering an analyzed area of 2,513 sq km (251,362 ha), UNOSAT identified 766 locations where possible displaced persons shelters are visible. Approximately a total of 5,516 shelter structures are estimated to be within the 777 ha of settlement areas. Due to the characteristics of the possible IDP settlements in the area, being the majority of them scattered structures in agricultural fields, the number of possible IDP shelters might have been overestimated. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
