This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected districts in Togo. Flooded areas have been sorted into 2 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence. Flood analysis was made using TerraSAR-X data recorded 10 August 2008. Blue areas represent pre-flood analysis made with RADARSAT recorded 23 November 2001. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.

The depiction and use of boundaries, geographic names and related data shown here are not warranted to be error-free nor do they imply official endorsement or acceptance by the United Nations. This map was produced by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) Operational Satellite Applications Program (UNOSAT). UNOSAT provides satellite imagery and related geographic information to UN humanitarian and development agencies and their implementing partners.
