This map illustrates satellite-derived analysis and tents detections
of Al Zaatri refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Northern
Jordan. As of 03 September 2012, a total of approximately 2,400
tents and 336 camp building/tents structures were identified with a
high degree of confidence within the well-defined and structured
camp site encompassing a current area of approximately 84Ha. Of
this total, 1,382 tents were likely erected for refugee people as on
21 August 2012.Between 21 August and 03 September, the camp
expanded significantly in both size and capacity, adding over
1,019 tent shelters as well as a range of purpose-built structures
likely dedicated for camp management. Tent shelters erected
before 21 August 2012 were also extensively reorganized in
several areas in order to build new tents.There was also ground
prepared which could accommodate new tents over an area of
approximately 30Ha.This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet
been validated in the field. Please send ground back feedback to
