This map shows the situation from Oct 31,2010 and can be downloaded from here as pdf document (2.37 MB) and enlarged to more details and higher resolution in your pdf reader. It presents potential flood affected lands in Ubon Ratchathani Province Thailand. SPOT 4 imagery was acquired on 31 October 2010 and has a resolution of 10m. The extensive presence of rice fields along the Mun River over the observed area causes confusion with possible flood inundated land. Therefore the analysis has a high level of uncertainty and areas marked in orange can also be flood affected. The current situation has been compared with SPOT 5 imagery as of the 18 January 2008. 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.
