    This map illustrates satellite-detected internally displaced persons (IDP) shelters in the area of the Rubkan crossing on the Syrian / Jordanian border. Using a satellite image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 25 July 2014, UNOSAT located 90 probable IDP shelters in the open desert and along the border about 25 kilometers southwest of the Al Waleed border crossing. Due to the very small size of the shelters it is likely that some shelters may have been missed 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 shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 06 July 2014 a total of 29,982 shelters were detected as well as 1,880 infrastructure and support buildings within the 534.4 hectares of the camp. Between 06 April 2014 and 06 July 2014, a total of 4,257 shelters closed or were moved, and a total of 2,774 shelters were constructed, and the number of shelters has thus decreased by about 1,298 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates an approximate 4.1% decrease in the number of shelters between 06 April 2014 and 06 July 2014. 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.
  • This map illustrates the refugee camp currently under construction in Al Azraq, Jordan using an image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 26 April 2014. As of 26 April 2014 a total of 7,333 structures were detected in the camp, 2,494 infrastructure and support buildings and 4,839 shelter structures. Nowadays the capacity of the camp is approximately of 12,500 refugees. Preparations are continuing so as to accommodate additional incoming refugees. The previous analysis done by UNOSAT using an image from 28 December 2013 detected a total of 3,174 infrastructure, support buildings and shelters structures. This is an increase of approximately 230%. Paved and unpaved roads have likewise increased significantly and define the transportation network in and around the camp. Water and sanitation services are also under development in multiple camp zones suitable for supporting thousands of proximate shelters. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

    This map illustrates the refugee camp currently under construction in Al Azraq, Jordan using an image collected by the WorldView-2 satellite on 28 December 2013. As of 28 December 2013 a total of 3,174 structures were detected in the camp, 2,431 infrastructure and support buildings and 743 tent structures. Preparations are continuing so as to accommodate additional incoming refugees. The previous analysis done by UNOSAT using an image from 14 September 2013 detected a total of 2,689 infrastructure, support buildings and shelters. This is an increase of approximately 18%. Paved and unpaved roads have likewise increased significantly and define the transportation network in and around the camp.

    This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Domiz refugee camp in Duhok Governorate, Iraq. As of 25 December 2013 a total of 9,367 standard shelters were detected, 990 improvised structures likely being used for shelter and other purposes, and 592 infrastructure and support buildings. Domiz refugee camp is encircled by a fence that surrounds the perimeter of the camp and delineates the 149.76 hectares of the camp area. Areas that were in preparation of the ground for new construction as 21 July 2013, as 25 December 2013 contain a total of 584 new shelters (estimated). New expansion areas are also visible in the image as of 25 December 2013, indicating preparations are underway to accommodate increased numbers of refugees in the near future. 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. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
