This map illustrates the area of Rwamwanja in the Kamwenge District of southwestern Uganda. Rwamwanja is home to both Ugandans and refugees from the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo. At UNOSATs request a commercial high resolution satellite image of the region was collected on 22 May 2013 and UNOSAT identified primary and secondary roads as well as 25,980 structures comprising homes, outbuildings, and larger buildings. Structures are numerous throughout the image with the exception of the densely vegetated southeastern region and certain other areas.This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
