This paper presents the preliminary results of the complex terrain situation description with the utility of multifractal features. The analysis was done for two samples of Internally Displaced Person/Refugee camps (Ifo, Daadab in Kenya/Al Geneina in Sudan). In both cases, the information on the complex terrain situation was derived based on the Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite panchromatic images. The multifractal formalism was applied in order to evaluate the scope of multifractal features applicability in the image classification domain. The results show, that the multifractal parameter calculated for all considered parts of the scenes increases in the area of compact image structures. This study gives a promising aspect of limited calculation time needed for the initial stage of image classification in respect to the spatial complexity of analysed terrain.
