This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Domiz refugee camp in Duhok Governorate, Iraq. As of 4 June 2013 a total of 9,950 standard shelters were detected, 1,520 improvised structures likely being used for shelter and other purposes, and 1,094 infrastructure and support buildings. Domiz refugee camp is encircled by a fence that surrounds the perimeter of the camp and delineates the 147.76 hectares of the camp area. New expansion areas are also visible in the image as of 6 June 2013, indicating preparations are underway to accommodate increased numbers of refugees in the near future. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
