Potential Informal Gathering Sites over Tanjung & Pemenang Districts, Indonesia

This map illustrates satellite-detected potential informal gathering sites over Tanjung and Pemenang Districts in Lombok Island, Indonesia as of 8 August 2018, subsequent to the 6.9 magnitude earthquake, that struck Lombok Island on 5 August 2018. The analysis was conducted using a post-event Pleiades satellite image acquired on 7 and 8 of August 2018. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis identified about 170 informal gathering sites in the analysed area of Lombok Island and 7 potential gathering sites in Gili Trawangan Island. The size of these temporary gathering sites ranges from isolated tents to clusters of tents. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
