CBC: Anatomy of a Refugee Camp

The Canadian Broadcasting Company has developed a first-class reputation for creating well-thought out web presentations, and this engrossing bird's-eye guide to a typical refugee camp is another such project of note. Visitors to the site are presented with a small compass in the lower left-hand corner of the site that allows them to maneuver through the overhead view of the refugee camp. Along with using the compass, visitors can also move directly to locations of interest through an interactive location map also available on the site. Some of the elements of a refugee camp that are profiled here include the food distribution point, the vehicle entrance, the water point, the market, and the shelters. Clicking on each question mark on various locations reveals a brief overview of the significance of each place within the greater hierarchy of the camp's operations. The site also includes a good selection of relevant external links, such as those that lead to Doctors Without Borders, the Red Cross, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
