    This map illustrates shelters in the area of the Rukban border crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using satellite images collected by the WorldView-03 satellite on 23 June 2018 and the GaoFen-2 satellite on 24 June 2018, UNOSAT located 11,702 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 12 percent increase in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 16 January 2018. 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 damage in the city of Douma, in Eastern Ghouta Area, Syrian Arab Republic. Using satellite imagery collected 2 March 2018 and comparing with imagery acquired 23 February 2018, UNITAR - UNOSAT conducted a Rapid Damage Assessment, over a total area of 17.1 square kilometers, to provide an overview of areas of recent damage. The area analyzed was divided in cells and each cell was assessed searching for presence of damage. Our analysis shows that 17% of the cells were affected by major new damage, with presence of buildings completely destroyed or severely damaged between 23 February 2018 and 2 March 2018. In addition 22% of the cells showed signs of minor new damage, with visible impact craters, debris or moderately damaged 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 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 24 January 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 24 January 2017, indicating the Mosul fires in white. The inset on the top left corner, from 21 January 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 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.

    This map illustrates areas of satellite detected fires in Buthindaung, Maungdaw, and Rathedaung Townships in the Maungdaw and Sittwe Districts of Rakhine State in Myanmar. Analysis used satellite- fire detections collected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on multiple dates from 25 August to 25 November 2017. A total of 171 fires were detected in different areas across Rathedaung, Buthindaung and Maungdaw townships during this period. While fire detections were spread out across the entire period analyzed, some notable clusters occurred on 28 August, 29 August, 3 September, 15 September, 25 September, 9 October, and 6 November, as indicated in the map. Days of peak fire detection occurred on 28 August and 15 September as indicated in the chart. Note that due to cloud cover and satellite overpass times many fires occurring in the area during this period would not have been detected, and are generally only detected if the satellites are overhead while the fire is sufficiently active and clouds are not interfering. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

    This map illustrates areas of satellite-detected destroyed or otherwise damaged settlements in Buthidaung, Maungdaw, and Rathedaung Townships in the Maungdaw and Sittwe Districts of Rakhine State in Myanmar. Analysis used satellite imagery collected on multiple dates between 31 August and 11 October 2017 and encompassed an area of about 4,800 square kilometers. Satellite analysis combined with information on settlement locations in Myanmar indicate that approximately 275 towns and villages were affected. This includes 34 in Buthidaung, 225 in Maungdaw, and 16 in Rathedaung. Note that these locations are indicated on the map though only a sampling are labeled due to the limitations of the map size and scale. Inset graphics show what is likely the village of Hpaw Ti Kaung, destroyed sometime between 16 September and 1 October 2017, with only a few structures and trees undamaged. Continued cloud cover and haze during the period in question means that destruction is likely underestimated in this analysis.

    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.
