This map illustrates satellite-detected damage in a portion of the city of Aleppo, Syrian Arab Republic. Using satellite imagery acquired 01 May 2015, 26 April 2015, 23 May 2014, 23 September 2013, and 21 November 2010, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified a total of 5,170 affected structures within the extent of this map. Approximately 904 of these were destroyed, 2,641 severely damaged, and 1,625 moderately damaged. The city-wide analysis of Aleppo revealed a total of 14,034 affected structures, of which 2,878 were destroyed, 6,879 severely damaged, and 4,277 moderately damaged. While much of the city was damaged by 23 May 2014, 5,567 structures were newly damaged and 90 structures experienced an increase in damage between that date and 01 May 2015. This analysis was done of the REACH initiative for the U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
