This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the King Abdullah Park refugee camp in Irbid Governorate, Jordan. As of 29 June 2013 a total of 118 shelters were detected as well as 37 infrastructure and support buildings within the 3 hectares of the camp. The number of shelters has thus decreased by about 8 shelters since the previous UNITAR/ UNOSAT assessment of the camp which used a satellite image from 27 May 2013.This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT
