This atlas map presents a satellite-based damage assessment for the affected areas between Kekhvi and Tskhinvali, South Ossetia, Georgia following the armed conflict between Georgian and Russian military forces in August 2008. Damaged buildings have been identified with WorldView-1 and Formosat-2 satellite imagery acquired on 19 August 2008. The estimated number of affected buildings within the mapped extent of this atlas sheet is described in the damage summary box below. Affected buildings have been classified either as destroyed or severely damaged. An important preliminary finding of this satellite damage analysis is the observed heavy concentration of damages within clearly defined residential areas. Please note, this is an initial damage assessment and has not yet been independently validated on the ground. Please send additions/corrections to UNOSAT.
