  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of displaced person settlements in Baidoa town, the southwestern capital of Bay region in Somalia. Using a Worlview-2 satellite image collected on 21 April 2017, UNOSAT analyzed the town of Baidoa and its outskirts areas and identified 272 locations where displaced person shelters are visible. A total of approximately 33,467 shelter structures are estimated to be within the ~149 hectares of settlement area. This represent an increase of 143% in shelter structures compared with the last UNOSAT analysis performed using imagery collected on 22 January 2017, where a total of 13,766 shelters, inside 144 locations, within 96 hectares of settlement area were detected. Note that also 1,288 additional shelters were detected in the previous analysis but were not detected in the current one as they are obscured by clouds in the image from 21 April 2017. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Rukban border crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-3 satellite on 29 April 2017, UNOSAT located 8,382 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 22.9 percent increase in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 17 February 2017. Due to the small size and the irregularity of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed in this analysis, or some shelters were included erroneously. Due to the scale of this map and the lack of suitable border information at this scale, the border in this map has been excluded. This map is intended for field support and local authorities should be consulted for boundary information. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected fires and smoke plumes at oil wells south of Mosul, and also east of Baiji, Iraq. The Mosul fires began with an initial fire at one or two wells on 8 May 2016, lasting less than one day, and intermittently burned in June. The current fire complex began on 3 July with daily fire detections occurring until about 12 July, when the fires greatly increased in number and continued to burn until gradual reductions in detected fires occurred starting in November 2016. The fires east of Baiji have been active since early January 2016. The frequency of smoke plumes (in days) is symbolized in shades of red and yellow, and was calculated using daily MODIS satellite images collected between 18 July 2016 and 13 March 2017. Note that as the plume dissipates then areas of thinner smoke are not detected in this process. The inset on the top right corner shows the infrared data from a Landsat image collected on 25 February 2017, indicating the Mosul fires in white. The inset on the top left corner, from 5 March 2017, shows the same area in real color. Additionally, precipitation data from NASA's IMERG algorithm was included to evaluate instances of rainfall intersecting the smoke plume. 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 displaced persons shelters in the Dalxiska settlement, north of Kismayo, Lower Juba, Somalia. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis of WorldView-3 satellite imagery acquired 08 September 2016 revealed a total of 2,426 shelters as well as 200 infrastructure and support buildings within the compound. A new shelter zone, labeled camp 2 on the map, is possibly planned north of the main settlement. To the south, camp 1 extends into the town of Dalxiska, often blending in to the city 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 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.
