This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 4 May 2013 a total of 28,243 shelters were detected as well as 1,662 infrastructure and support buildings within the 530.95 hectares of the camp. Between 15 April 2013 and 4 May 2013, a total of 3,754 shelters closed or were moved, and a total of 6,545 shelters were constructed, and the number of shelters has thus increased by about 2,791 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates a 11.3% increase in the number of shelters between 15 April and 4 May 2013. In addition areas of expansion are also visible in the image as of 4 May 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.
