This aerial survey of the Gran Ravine section of Port au Prince, Haiti was conducted as part of the first operational deployment of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) by the United Nations in February 2012. A total of five sites across Port au Prince were surveyed by a UNITAR/UNOSAT field deployment in direct support to on-going earthquake recovery projects of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). In the case example of Gran Ravine illustrated in this map, the UAV acquired an image mosaic of the settlements along the steep hillsides at an unprecedented spatial resolution of only 7 centimetres; thus providing IOM and local government authorities with the most detailed aerial imagery ever acquired over the city. Technical support for the UAV system was provided by SenseFly, and the mission was conducted in the context of the GMES GEO-PICTURES project. The results of this UAV survey have been validated on the ground. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT at the contact information below.
