This map illustrates shelters and other structures in the Batil refugee settlement in Maban County of Upper Nile State, South Sudan. A total of 7,102 shelter tents were detected, representing an increase of 165 shelters since the previous UNOSAT analysis of this camp which used an image from 5 August 2012. In addition, 4,879 small "huts" were identified which were previously unassessed, and finally 500 likely administrative and support structures were detected. A primary dirt road borders the camp to the northeast, while recently constructed secondary dirt roads are present within the camp as well. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
