This map illustrates the Batil Refugee Camp in Maban County of Upper Nile State in South Sudan. Using high-resolution optical satellite imagery collected by the WorldView-2 satellite, UNOSAT located a total of 14,639 shelters and 274 non-shelter structures as of 25 November 2013. This is an 22% increase in number of shelters since the previous UNOSAT analysis of Batil Camp which used an imagery from 17 February 2013 and located 11,981 shelters and 500 non-shelter structures. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
