  • The map shows the elevation of the surroundings of the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. The elevation information is derived from ASTER GDEM 2 data (vertical accuracy +/- 6m). Furthermore basic reference information, digitized on the basis of WorldView-2 satellite data acquired on January 03, 2013, at 08:52:52 UTC and LANDSAT-7 data acquired on December 16, 2012 at 08:07:11 UTC, is depicted. Not all settlements are captured. The results have not been validated in the field. ASTER GDEM 2 data as well as a hillshade derived from this data is used as backdrop. Please note, that information on elevation derived from ASTER data does not apply for the refugee camp area. ASTER data was acquired before 2011 and the elevation might have changed due to construction works. The products elaborated for this Rapid Mapping Activity are realised to the best of our ability, within a very short time frame, optimising the material available. All geographic information has limitations due to the scale, resolution, date and interpretation of the original source materials.

  • The map shows the Al Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. It is situated approx. 12 km from the Syrian border and in close proximity to the city of Al Mafraq (10 km). The camp was set up on July 28, 2012, to shelter refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria. The map shows general characteristics of the camp infrastructure, including camp extent, location of shelters, containers and facility buildings, road infrastructure and the runway area. For a more detailed view parts of the camp area are also shown in the zoom boxes. The vector data have been digitized on the basis of WorldView-2 satellite data (0.5 m spatial resolution) acquired on January 03, 2013. The results have not been validated in the field.
