20 Oct 2009 description

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of likely building and vegetation damages caused by the magnitude 8.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami on 29 September 2009. A total of 11 damage sites were identified based on post-disaster satellite imagery collected on 2-3 October 2009. Each site has a corresponding high resolution focus map within the PDF document. Damage identification was significantly restricted by heavy cloud and shadow coverage, as well as by spatial resolution of the imagery.
