This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Domiz refugee camp in Duhok Governorate, Iraq. As of 21 July 2013 a total of 10,248 standard shelters were detected, 1,682 improvised structures likely being used for shelter and other purposes, and 1,122 infrastructure and support buildings. Between 4 June 2013 and 21 July 2013 the number of shelters has thus increased by about 298 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment. This indicates an approximate 3% increase in the number of shelters between 4 June and 21 July 2013. Domiz refugee camp is encircled by a fence that surrounds the perimeter of the camp and delineates the 148.12 hectares of the camp area. New expansion areas are also visible in the image as of 21 July 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; structure locations subject to a spatial error margin of +/- three meters. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
