This map illustrates the Gendrasa refugee camp in Maban County of Upper Nile State in South Sudan, the site of recurring floods due to its proximity to nearby marshes. Using a combination of high-resolution optical satellite imagery a total of 4,334 shelters and 187 non-shelter structures were detected as of 3 October 2012. This is a 370% increase in size since a previous analysis of the 5 August 2012 when there were 1,167 shelters and 25 non-shelter structures, and standing water can now be seen around the camp. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
