This map presents an satellite-derived estimation of road segments likely covered with flood water as identified with Spot5 satellite imagery recorded 24 March 2008 over the affected areas of Oshana Region, Namibia. The locations of flooded roads have been marked on the map with yellow point symbols: one point for every 10 meters of flooded road. Additionally, the total estimated length of flooded roads has been classified and summarized by major route. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Map scale for A3: 1:250,000; Projection : UTM Zone 33 South; Datum : WGS 1984.
