This map illustrates the Batil refugee camp in Maban County of Upper Nile State in South Sudan. The Batil camp was largely constructed between May and August of 2012 and is the site of recurring floods due to its proximity to nearby marshes. Using a combination of high-resolution optical satellite imagery a total of 6,957 shelters were detected as of 5 August 2012. In addition 204 non-shelter structures were detected, including a likely market area and camp support facilities. A primary dirt road borders the camp to the northeast, while secondary dirt roads are present within the camp as well. Notably, the large majority of shelters are likely accessible only on foot and many shelters are situated as much as 1.5 kilometers away from the secondary roads. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
