This map illustrates the camp for IDPs in the UNMISS base at Juba airport as seen by the WorldView-1, Pleiades and WorldView-2 satellites on 9 February, 7 January 2014 and 28 December 2013. As of 28 December a significant portion of the airport is used by IDPs shelters, occupying approximately 7 ha. Since then the camp extent has moderately increased its area. Imagery acquired on 9 February 2014 shows that the total area of IDPs occupies 9.2 ha, compared to the 7.9 ha detected on 7 January 2014. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other structures. Analysis indicates the extent of the IDP camp on 9 February is largely unchanged from the previous analysis done using an image from 30 January 2014. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
