The assessment of damaged areas was done through photo-interpretation of three satellite images: two recorded before Operation Murambatsvina on 18 October 2002 (SPOT5 data, 2.5m resolution) covering Glen Norah and 16 April 2005 (Quick Bird, 0.6m resolution) covering Mbare and the third during the operation on 27 June 2005 (IKONOS, 1m resolution) covering both townships. The total estimated area of damage shown in this section of Glen Norah township is approximately 96,650 square meters for Mbare and 77,640 square meters for Glen Norah.
