This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of displaced person settlements in Baidoa town, the southwestern captial of Bay region in Somalia. Using a Worlview-1 satellite image collected on 22 January 2017, UNOSAT analysed the town of Baidoa and its outskirts areas and identified 144 locations where displaced person shelters are visible. A total of approximately 13,766 shelter structures are estimated to be within the ~96 hectares of settlement area. This represent an increase of 72% in shelters structures compared with the last UNOSAT analysis performed using imagery collected on 2 October 2014, where a total of 7,990 shelters, inside 90 locations, within 40.3 hectares of settlement area were detected. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
