This urban focus map illustrates satellite-detected areas of probable flood waters and flood-affected areas within the city of Rosso, Mauritania as based on change detection methods using Formosat-2 data acquired 16 September, and pre-crisis Spot-5 imagery acquired 10 November 2008.The primary locations of flood waters affecting the city are located in the northern and eastern edge of the urban zone. It is likely that standing water bodies located along narrow streets have been potentially underestimated. This flood assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
