This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected Regions of Omusati, Oshikoto & Oshana, Namibia, as of 4 March 2008. Flooded areas have been sorted into 3 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence; Orange areas represent areas possibly affected by flood waters, identified with a low degree of confidence; and Blue areas represent pre-flood water levels in November 2007. Estimates for flooded areas per constituency have been calculated in km2. Flood analysis was made using MODIS Terra & Aqua data recorded between 20 February and 4 March 2008. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Map Scale for A3: 1,100,000; Projection: UTM, Zone 33 South; Datum: WGS 1984.
