This map presents a preliminary satellite-based damage assessment for the affected Town of Labutta, Labutta Township (MMR017004), Ayeyarwady Division, Myanmar; and is based on SPOT-5 imagery acquired on 20 & 24 May 2008 & 20 December 2007. Damaged industrial/warehouse buildings as well as boat terminal/docking facilities have been individually identified by site location. Additionally, approximate areas of likely severe damage / destruction have been classified on the map according to dominant building type: Residential, mixed residential/commercial and industrial/commercial. These zones help to identify those areas with the highest proportion of damage, however areas outside those marked may also have been severely affected. This is an initial damage assessment & has not yet been validated in the field. Map Scale for A3: 1:8,500; Projection : UTM Zone 46 North - WGS 1984
