This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 15 April 2013 a total of 25,378 shelters were detected as well as 1,451 infrastructure and support buildings within the 531.44 hectares of the camp. Between 31 March 2013 and 15 April 2013, a total of 4,288 shelters closed or were moved, and a total of 4,555 shelters were constructed, and the number of shelters has thus increased by about 62 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates a 0.2% increase in the number of shelters between 31 March and 15 April 2013. In addition areas of expansion are also visible in the image as of 15 April 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.
