This map illustrates the relative spatial density of major road and bridge obstructions in Port-au-Prince and Carrefour, as identified in satellite imagery recorded on 13 January 2010. A total of 691 obstacles were identified, almost all due to collapsed buildings and related debris, in only a few cases were the obstructions the result of landslides. Of this total, 224 were likely completely blocked to motorized traffic and 467 were partial obstructions restricting vehicle access. Four case examples of specific road obstructions are shown in the imagery. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A3: 1:55,000; projection: UTM zone 18N, WGS84.
