Rapid Mapping

First map over Bangladesh hit by Aila

ITHACA delivered to WFP Country Office the first digital map over Bangladesh districts hit by Tropical Cyclone Aila that has displaced millions of people in India and Bangladesh on the 25th of May.

In a turnaround time of less than 24 hours (since the request was first received) the first products produced by ITHACA to support the response efforts of the World Food Programme to the floods in Bangladesh can be downloaded from the maps section.

Importantly ITHACA is working closely with the Italian Space Agency in the acquisition of imagery from the Cosmo-SkyMED constellation.
