This map illustrates the estimated population density within 5km of satellite detected flood water in Mali & Eastern Mauritania. Total population figures have also been estimated by province and district admin. units (levels 1 & 2). Flood water analysis was made using MODIS Terra data recorded from 12-15 September 2007. Additional pre-flood MODIS terra data from May 2007 (depicted in blue) was used in this analysis. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. UNOSAT is collaborating with WFP and ITHACA in support to the humanitarian operation in West Africa.
