This map illustrates the Yida refugee camp in Pariang County of Unity State in South Sudan. Using high-resolution optical satellite imagery collected on 12 October 2012 by the WorldView-2 satellite a total of 7,824 shelters, houses, and market structures were located in the camp area. An additional 328 other structures, largely for storage and camp administration purposes, were also located. Prior to the establishment of the refugee camp at Yida a small town existed on the site which has largely been engulfed by the thousands of shelters in the area. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
