This map illustrates the suspected fire-damaged locations around the city of Eldoret, Uasin Gishu District, Rift Valley Province, following the national elections on 27 December 2007. These burn areas were identified using Formosat-2 satellite imagery recorded on 9 January 2008. Additional information was used on detected fire location from the MODIS Aqua & Terra satellites covering the time period of 27 December to 2 January 2008. Please note that this fire analysis cannot discriminate between normally-occurring fires and those resulting from arson or conflict, and therefore contains a large degree of uncertainty as to the cause.
