This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected Provinces of Punjab and N.W.F.P., Pakistan following recent heavy monsoon rains. This analysis is based on post-disaster satellite imagery collected by MODIS sensors on 31 July 2010, and pre-crisis by MODIS sensors on 18 July 2010. Please note that the exact limit of the flood waters is uncertain (approximately 250-500m) because of the relatively low spatial resolution of the satellite sensors used for this analysis, and that detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A3:1:1,400,000; Projection : UTM Zone 42N, Datum : WGS-84
