Damage Assessment in Bouar, Nana Membere Province, Central African Republic (as of 19 February 2014)

Published on 19 Feb 2014 View Original

This map illustrates locations of destroyed structure in Bouar area, Central African Republic. Using a satellite image acquired 22 January 2014 by the WorldView-2 satellite, UNOSAT reviewed the town of Bouar and surrounding areas to locate signs of destroyed structures. A total of 336 destroyed structures were located in the area though this number can be underestimated due to the lack of previous image for comparison. Most destruction detected was most likely a result of burning given the blackened structural remains visible in the imagery. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
