This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Mafraq Governorate, Jordan. As of 3 January 2013 a total of 11,966 shelters were detected as well as 866 infrastructure and support buildings within the 314 hectares of the camp. The number of shelters has thus increased by about 6,803 since the previous UNITAR/UNOSAT assessment of the camp which used a satellite image from 15 November 2012, indicating the number of camp inhabitants have almost doubled since that date. In addition areas of expansion are also visible in the image as of 3 January 2013, indicating preparations are underway to accommodate similarly increased numbers of refugees in the near future.
