  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage density in the city of Deir Ez Zor, Syrian Arab Republic. Using satellite imagery acquired 10 May 2015, 13 May 2014, 24 October 2013, and 05 December 2010 UNITAR - UNOSAT identified a total of 3,435 affected structures within the city. Approximately 538 of these were destroyed, 1,153 severely damaged, and 1,744 moderately damaged. While much of the city was damaged by 13 May 2014, 349 structures were newly damaged and 70 structures experienced an increase in damage between that date and 10 May 2015. This analysis was done as part of the REACH initiative for the U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates the percentage of buildings damaged in the city of Aleppo, Syrian Arabic Republic, as determined by satellite imagery analysis. Using satellite imagery acquired 18 September 2016, 01 May 2015, 26 April 2015, 23 May 2014, 23 September 2013, and 21 November 2010, UNOSAT identified a total of 33,521 damaged structures within the extent of this map. These damaged structures are compared with total numbers of buildings found in a pre-conflict satellite image collected in 2009 to determine the percentage of damaged buildings across the city. Based on this analysis and in the map extent, in 19 neighborhoods the number of damaged buildings is more than 40%. The most damaged is Al Aqabeh with 65.61% of buildings damaged and the most significant change since UNOSAT’s 2015 analysis is Khalidiyeh, which increased in percentage damage from 4.20% to 55.80%. Note that this analysis considers only damage in residential areas and excludes industrial areas. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • 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-2 satellite on 03 December 2016, UNOSAT located 6,441 probable shelters along the Jordanian side of the border, 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed crossing. This is a 9 percent decrease in apparent shelters visible compared to the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 22 October 2016. 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 shelters in the area of the Hadalat crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-3 satellite on 12 November 2016, UNOSAT located 1,358 probable shelters. This is an 5% decrease in shelters since the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image collected 18 October 2016. 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.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 30 June 2016 a total of 25,815 shelters were detected as well as 1,879 infrastructure and support buildings within the 534 hectares of the camp. Between 12 October 2015 and 30 June 2016 a total of 2,568 shelters were constructed, with even more removed, indicating an approximate 4.26% decrease in the number of shelters between 12 October 2015 and 30 June 2016. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field; structure locations subject to a spatial error margin of +/- three meters. Shelters grouped under plastic sheeting were estimated by average household size and may be a source of error. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.

    Updated July 17, 2016 | Dataset date: Jun 11, 2015
    Data as of June 11, 2015. The "Syria Refugee Sites" dataset contains verified data about the geographic location (point geometry), name, and operational status of refugee sites hosting Syrian refugees in Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq. Only refugee sites operated by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or the Government of Turkey are included. Compiled by the U.S Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit (INR/GGI/HIU), each attribute in the dataset (including name, location, and status) is verified against multiple sources. The name and status are obtained from the UNHCR data portal (accessible at http://data.unhcr.org/syrianrefugees/regional.php). The locations are obtained from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's GEOnet Names Server (GNS) (accessible at http://geonames.nga.mil/ggmagaz/). The name and status for each refugee site is verified with PRM. Locations are verified using high-resolution commercial satellite imagery and/or known areas of population. Additionally, all data is checked against various news sources. Locations are only accurate down to the city level. The designation field gives the type of site and the status of the site. Sites can be "Official Camps", camp settlements that are officially established and maintained by the United Nations or host country. Sites can also be "Transitional Camps", which is a typical camp structure but designed to be temporary or used on as needed basis. There can also be "Transitional Facilities"; these are facilities that are being used to temporarily house refugees. Status of these sites can be Planned, Under Construction, Staged, Open, or Closed. The data contained herein is entirely unclassified and is current as of 11 June 2015. The data is updated as needed.
