This map illustrates the refugee camp currently under construction in Al Azraq, Jordan. As of 16 June 2013 some areas of the camp are under construction to accommodate shelters and administrative structures in coming months. Paved and unpaved roads have been created define the transportation network in and around the camp. In the current analysis, new camp extensions were developed and also some modules have been created out in order to set up the coming infrastructure in the camp. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
