This map illustrates IDP shelter changes within the city of Kismayo, Somalia occurring between 11 August 2013 and 05 March 2014 as seen in satellite imagery collected by the Pleiades and WorldView-1 satellites. During this period there was little change seen in the vast majority of the IDP sites visible in the city. However, about 26 new camps opened in the area and are located primarily on the outskirts of Kismayo. Total IDP camp area is 31.38 ha as of 5 March 2014, versus 29.02 ha as of 11 August 2013. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
