This is a hyperlinked UNOSAT GDACS "light map". It is produced in direct support of field team assessments and designed for easy print out (A4 format, grayscale). This overview map provides direct web hyperlinks to the individual atlas map sheets over the flood-affected municipalities of Uruguay.

Each atlas map sheet illustrates those areas likely covered with standing flood waters. This analysis was made using pre and post-flooding MODIS-Terra Rapid Response imagery recorded on 19 April and 9-10 May 2007. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
