What do we see on VHR satellite data?

Depending on the type of camp, different dwelling structures (e.g. tents covered with white or blue tarpaulin, tukuls, makeshift shelter) can be identified besides camp infrastructure and surrounding land cover (here: Zam Zam IDP camp, Darfur, Sudan, WorldView-2).

The number of single dwellings, derived by visual interpretation or automated feature extraction, can be used for population estimations.
