Flood

Floods in Israel, Palestine and Jordan

English

On 10 January 2013 the International Charter "Space and Major Disasters" was activated for floods in the Middle East to provide satellite imagery and derived maps. UN-SPIDER/UNOOSA requested the activation on behalf of UNOCHA, Pt Jerusalem Office. The National Space Organization (NSPO) already provided a Formosat2 image taken on 12 January 2013 over Palestine. The Imagery was processed by the FCU (Feng Chia University) GIS team.
