This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters as of 25 March 2008 over the affected areas of southern Angola. Detected flood waters are shown in red. Flood analysis was made using DMC data recorded 25 March 2008 at a spatial resolution of 30 meters. Note: Differences in the flood extent between earlier flood maps do not necessarily indicate significant changes in water levels but may be due to differences in the spatial and spectral resolution of satellite sensors. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Map scale for A3: 1:420,000; Projection : UTM Zone 33 South; Datum : WGS 1984.
