This map illustrates satellite-detected water over the flood-affected district of Kilinochchi, Sri Lanka. Probable flood waters were detected with Radarsat data acquired on 1 December 2008 at a spatial resolution of 25m. Pre-flood Radarsat data from 21 June 1998 & ASAR-WSM radar data from 11 November 2008 was also used in this analysis. This flood assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Map scale for A3: 1:120,000; Projection : UTM Zone 44 North; Datum : WGS 1984.
