This map illustrates potentially damaged structures/buildings and related density in Sarpol-e-Zahab, Kermanshah, Iran as detected by a Pleiades satellite image acquired on 16 November 2017. The UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis identified 683 damaged structures. Taking into account the pre-building footprints provided by Humanitarian OpenStreetMap (~9700 structures), this represents about 7 % of the total number of structures within Sarpol-e-Zahab. The damage density highlights that the neighbourhood of Maskane Mahar and the area around the Post Office are amongst the most affected zones. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
