Syrian Refugee Camps 2016

This "Syria Refugee Sites" map is compiled by the U.S. Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit (INR/GGI/HIU). This map contains free open source made data about the geographic location (point geometry), name, and operational status of refugee sites/camps hosting Syrian refugees in Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq. Only refugee sites operated by the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or the Government of Turkey are included.

Compiled by the U.S Department of State, Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU), each attribute on the map (including name, location, and status) is verified against multiple sources. The name and status are obtained from UN and AFAD reporting and the UNHCR data portal (accessible at https://data.unhcr.org/syrianrefugees/regional.php). The locations are obtained from both the U.S. Department of State, PRM and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's GEOnet Names Server (GNS) (accessible at https://geonames.nga.mil/ggmagaz/). The name and status for each refugee site is verified with PRM. Locations are verified using high-resolution commercial satellite imagery and/or known areas of population. Additionally, all map data is checked against various news sources. The map data contained herein is entirely unclassified and is current as of 14 January 2016. The map data is updated as needed.
