This map presents a satellite-based water and damage assessment for the affected towns and villages along the flooded Jianjiang River valley, resulting from the earthquake-created lake and landslides. This assessment has been made with FORMOSAT-2 satellite imagery acquired from 3 to 10 June 2008 at a spatial resolution of 2m. Pre-disaster imagery recorded on 14 May 2006 was also used. This is an initial damage assessment & has not yet been validated in the field.
