This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters as of 17 March 2009 over the affected Region of Caprivi, Namibia. Flooded areas have been sorted into 2 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence; and Blue areas represent pre-flood water from multiple source. Flood analysis was made using ENVISAT-ASAR data (WSM) recorded on 17 March 2009 at a spatial resolution of 150m. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
