This map illustrates the refugee camp currently under construction in Al Azraq, Jordan and updates the previous UNOSAT analysis done using an image from 21 July 2013. As of 20 August 2013 a total of 2,689 infrastructure and support buildings were detected in the camp and preparations are continuing to accommodate incoming refugees. The previous analysis done by UNOSAT detected total of 1,574 infrastructure and support buildings, so this suppose and increase of 41%. Paved and unpaved roads have likewise increased significantly and define the transportation network in and around the camp. Water and sanitation services are also under development in multiple camp zones suitable for supporting thousands of proximate shelters. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
