  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of damage in the town of Bentiu, South Sudan, resulting from ongoing violence in the area. Using an image collected 18 January 2014 by the WorldView-1 satellite, UNOSAT identified almost 1,200 destroyed structures in and around the town. Destruction is largely concentrated along the northern edge of the town along the Bahr al-Gazal river bank and primarily affects homes and related structures as well as some commercial buildings. Using pre-conflict building data UNOSAT estimates that about 8% of the structures in Bentiu are destroyed. This is a preliminary analysis and is based on an enhanced rapid analysis methodology. It 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. 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 satellite-detected areas of destruction in the town of Rubkona as seen by the Ikonos satellite on 13 January 2014. UNOSAT analyzed all structures in the town to verify reports of damage and determined that the majority of the town has been destroyed, primarily by fire. A total of 3,996 burned or otherwise destroyed structures were identified throughout the town center as well as in outlying areas surrounding Rubkona. In addition, indications of looting consisting of debris piles were evident in multiple locations. 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 IDPs in the UNMISS Rubkona base as seen by the Ikonos satellite on 13 January 2014 and the WorldView-2 satellite on 2 January 2014. Fleeing outbreaks of violence, a portion of the UNMISS compound is in use by IDPs, occupying more than 3.9 ha by 13 January, compared to 2.6 ha as of 2 January 2013. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other 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 shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 7 January 2014 a total of 28,093 shelters were detected as well as 1,735 infrastructure and support buildings within the 531.8 hectares of the camp. Between 30 September 2013 and 7 January 2014, a total of 4,982 shelters closed or were moved, and a total of 6,868 shelters were constructed, and the number of shelters has thus increased by about 2,171 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates an approximate 8.4% increase in the number of shelters between 30 September 2013 and 7 January 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 satellite-detected areas of destruction in the town of Mayom as seen by the Pleiades satellite on 11 January 2014. UNOSAT analyzed all structures in the town to verify reports of damage and determined that the majority of the town has been destroyed primarily by fire. A total of 1,801 burned or otherwise destroyed structures were identified throughout the town center as well as in outlying areas surrounding Mayom. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates the camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the UNMISS base at Juba airport as seen by the WorldView-1, Pleiades and WorldView-2 satellites on 19 January 2014, 7 January 2014 and 28 December 2013. As of 28 December a significant portion of the airport is used by IDP?s shelters, occupying approximately 7 ha. Since then the camp extent has moderately increased its area. Imagery acquired on 19 January 2014 shows that the total area of IDP?s occupies 8.9 ha, compared to the 7.9 ha detected on 7 January 2014. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other 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 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.

    This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in the base for the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) at Juba airport as seen by the WorldView-2 and Pleiades satellites on 7 January 2014, 28 December 2013 and 20 December 2013. As of 20 December a significant part of the airport was already used by IDP shelters, occupying a total area of 2.8 ha. By 28 December a very dramatic increase in the number of IDPs is detected in the imagery, occupying more than 7 ha. Imagery from 7 January shows that the expansion of IDPs has been more moderate, observing a total area of IDPs of 7.9 ha. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

    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.
