This map illustrates satellite-detected small temporary water bodies, wetlands and other humid areas as measured every 10 days between 1999 and June 2013 by SPOT satellites. Each pixel therefore indicates how many decadal (ten day) periods within the 14 years sampling period experienced some from of inundation or wetland conditions. Darker pixels indicate areas with relatively higher frequencey of inundation, while lighter pixels indicates areas with less frequent inundations. Populated place names are currently being compiled by UNOSAT. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
