  • This map illustrates areas of IDP settlement changes within the area of Hargeisa, Somalia, occurring between 20 August 2012 and 02 November 2014, as seen by the Pleiades and GeoEye-1 satellites. UNOSAT analysis revealed one new IDP settlement and one expanded IDP settlement by 02 November 2014. However, 4 other settlement areas contracted and 2 settlement areas did not change. As of 02 November 2014, the IDP settlements occupy a total area of 71.06 ha, which represents an increase of 3.96 ha since 20 August 2012. A total of 7,108 IDP structures were detected as of 02 November 2014.This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground 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 areas of IDP shelter changes within the area of Baidoa, Somalia occurring between 8 February and 2 October 2014, and as seen by the Pleiades and WorldView-3 satellites. UNOSAT analysis 25 new IDP and 14 expanded IDP settlement areas by 2 October 2014. However, 18 other settlement areas contracted and 5 areas were no longer visible, and so the overall number of structures did not change significantly. Specifically, the number of structures increased from 7,910 on 8 February 2014 to 7,990 on 2 October 2014. The 90 IDP areas visible on 2 October 2014 occupy an area of approximatively 40.3 ha, which represent an increase of 1.54 ha since the previous analysis 8 February 2014. 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 probable IDP shelters in Kismayo, Somalia as seen in satellite imagery collected by the WorldView-1 satellite on 3 May 2014. In this area UNOSAT located 2,952 shelters in 64 apparent IDP settlements. However, poor image quality, density of shelters, and varied construction material introduces significant uncertainty into this analysis. The IDP settlement areas were also compared to an image from 05 March 2014 collected by the WorldView-1 satellite to give indications on whether settlements were new, had closed, or were increasing or decreasing in size. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates probable IDP shelters in Luuq, Somalia, and surrounding areas, as seen in satellite imagery collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 07 June 2014. In this area, UNOSAT located 1,781 shelters (391 transitional housing and 1,390 improvised shelters) in 27 apparent IDP settlements. Previous analysis using an image from 12 December 2012 located 1,034 shelters in 10 settlements. The updated analysis therefore shows an increase in IDP shelters of 72%, and new IDP settlements are mainly located on the periphery of the town. Note that some areas of the image were obscured by cloud cover and thus not analyzed. 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 for displaced persons north of Galkayo in Somalia. Using a WorldView-2 image collected on 20 April 2014, UNOSAT located and marked a total of 2,816 new structures (1,879 metal shelters structures, 906 improvised shelters (buuls) and 31 administrative structures) in four camp areas. In addition of the previous analysis, a total of 5,068 IDP structures has been located in and around the town of Galkayo. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates probable IDP shelter in Kismayo, Somalia as seen in satellite imagery collected by the WorldView-1 satellite on 5 March 2014. In this area UNOSAT located 1,969 shelters in 57 apparent IDP settlements. However, poor image quality, density of shelters, and varied construction material introduces significant uncertainty into this analysis. The IDP settlement areas were also compared to an image from 11 August 2013 collected by the Pleaides satellite to give indications on whether settlements were new, had closed, or were increasing or decreasing in size. 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 shelters for displaced persons in the Galkayo settlement in Somalia. Using a WorlView-1 image collected on 25 February 2014, UNOSAT located and marked 453 temporary shelter structures in the camp. In addition, 1,799 metal shelter structures were identified which are also likely housing for displaced persons. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates IDP shelter changes within the city of Kismayo, Somalia occurring between 11 August 2013 and 05 March 2014 as seen in satellite imagery collected by the Pleiades and WorldView-1 satellites. During this period there was little change seen in the vast majority of the IDP sites visible in the city. However, about 26 new camps opened in the area and are located primarily on the outskirts of Kismayo. Total IDP camp area is 31.38 ha as of 5 March 2014, versus 29.02 ha as of 11 August 2013. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates area of IDP shelter changes within the area of Baidoa, Somalia occurring between 21 August 2013 and 8 February 2014 as seen in satellite imagery collected by the Pleiades satellite. There were significant increases in the IDP areas during this time due to the 20 IDP sites that appeared and the 14 IDP sites that were expanded during the analysis period. The 78 IDP areas occupy an area of approximately 38.76 ha, which represent an increase of 0.48 ha since the previous analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • 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.
