Updated Landslide Assessment for Namasheti & Ulukusi Parish, Uganda (as of 11 Mar 2010)


This map illustrates an updated satellite-based analysis of probable landside-affected areas as identified in post-disaster SPOT-5 imagery recorded 10 March 2010 and pre-disaster Spot-5 imagery from 20 February 2007. Main buildings likely affected by landslides were identified through automatic detection techniques from the pre-crisis SPOT-5 imagery. Please note there is an associated degree of uncertainly for some areas of landslides because of local cloud cover and the building count is likely to be an underestimate from the total number of affected buildings in this area. This assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
