This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 30 September 2013 a total of 25,922 shelters were detected as well as 1,679 infrastructure and support buildings within the 531.8 hectares of the camp. Between 25 August 2013 and 30 September 2013, a total of 4,006 shelters closed or were moved, and a total of 3,289 shelters were constructed, and the number of shelters has thus decreased by about 643 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates an approximate 2.4% decrease in the number of shelters between 25 August and 30 September 2013. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field; structure locations subject to a spatial error margin of +/- three meters. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
