This map presents the flood water/flood-affected extent over the affected Tehsils of Thatta and Mirpur Sakro following Cyclone Phet on 6 June 2010. This analysis is based on post-disaster satellite imagery collected by MODIS Aqua on 8 and 9 June 2010. Because of a combination of limiting factors including sensor resolution, local vegetation cover and clouds there is an associated moderate degree of uncertainly related to this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis which will be updated with higher resolution satellite when available. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A3: 1:240,000; Projection: UTM Zone 42N; Datum: WGS-84.
