This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 31 March 2013 a total of 25,316 shelters were detected as well as 1,246 infrastructure and support buildings within the 531.21 hectares of the camp. The number of shelters has thus decreased by about 926 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment of the camp which used a satellite image from 14 March 2013. This indicates a 3.5% decrease in the number of shelters between 14 March and 31 March 2013. In addition areas of expansion are also visible in the image as of 31 March 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. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
