Analysis Description: This map presents the preliminary findings of a damage assessment over sixteen flood-affected towns and cities along the Kabul and Kalpani Rivers including the main city of Nowshera, Nowshera District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. This analysis is based on post-disaster Worldview-1 satellite imagery collected on 2 August 2010. All road and bridge damages related to the flooding have been individually identified and marked within the map; flood-affected towns and villages have been classified by the relative degree of flooding impact and the approximate number and extent of building damages as visually identified in the satellite imagery. Not all flood related damages have been identified because of limits in spatial resolution of the imagery used and due to heavy cloud cover over the assessed area; damages identified are likely to be underestimated. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A3: 1:44,000; Projection : UTM Zone 43N; Datum : WGS-84.
