This GDACS LIVE map integrates geo-spatial data from a range of sources to monitor flood waters in Pakistan after heavy rains starting in late July 2015. Particular focus is on information derived from satellite imagery and field data. Up-to-date and comprehensive satellite image derived flood analysis are displayed, and as photos from the field are taken using the UN-ASIGN smartphone app they will also be added. Additional supporting GIS data are also included on the map.

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas with waters as detected by SENTINEL-1 imagery acquired the 16 September 2014 in Tarind Muhammad Panah area. The Indus and the Panjnad rivers expanded and seem to have inundated some agricultural fields along the Indus River and the Panjnad River in the Punjab Province (Pakistan). This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of flood affected land as detected in a TerraSAR-X image acquired 15 September 2014 in the Multan area, Punjab Province (Pakistan). The area along Chenab River and the agricultural areas west of Multan along Chenab River are most likely inundated by floods caused by monsoon rains. Due to sensor limitations, flood waters could be underestimated in urban areas. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.

English version

This map presents the estimated total rainfall accumulation for Pakistan covering the period 4-13 September 2014. Also presented is the estimated mean average rainfall accumulation by administrative unit (1st level). This total estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.

report UNOSAT

2 October 2013, Geneva, Switzerland - It took only minutes after the first seismic shock that hit the Pakistani province of Baluchistan in the afternoon of 24 September for experts to understand that this emergency would require the mobilization of humanitarian assistance. Despite the scarcity of population of Baluchistan, which is also the largest province in the country, the intensity of the quake was enough to affect 300,000 people and cause at least 348 deaths according to UN figures.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of damage in a rural area near the village of Gajar and within a few kilometers of the 24 September 2013 earthquake epicenter. Using an image acquired 26 September 2013 by the Pleiades satellite, UNOSAT reviewed the area for evidence of destroyed buildings and signs of possible damage. A total of 418 structures were identified as destroyed within the 38 square kilometer area analyzed, and an additional 22 structures were possibly damaged.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of damage in the western portion of the town of Awaran resulting from the earthquake occurring 24 September 2013. Using an image acquired 26 September 2013 by the Pleiades satellite, UNOSAT reviewed the area for evidence of destroyed buildings and signs of possible damage. A total of 142 structures were identified as destroyed in the analyzed area, and an additional 48 were possibly damaged. The remaining 4,522 structures in the analyzed area showed no signs of damage visible in the satellite imagery.

9 September 2013, Geneva, Switzerland - UNOSAT and ESCAP requested the activation of the International Charter Space and Major Disasters to generate the satellite data necessary to assess the extent of that flooding that has been affecting Pakistan since mid-August 2013. The data was used by UNOSAT analysts to generate a series of maps illustrating the extent and location of the flooding that had been caused by heavy monsoon rains.
