Rapid Mapping

Hurricane Ike

ITHACA was requested by the International Charter for Space and Major Disaster to process data over Haiti for the assessment of the impact of Hurricane Ike.

In addition, ASI (Italian Space Agency) and e-Geos, provided some data over the Gonaives city (the most affected area in Haiti). The data have been acquired by the Cosmo/Skymed constellation.

After the flood in Myanmar and the Sichuan province earthquake in China, the Italian involvement in emergencies becomes more and more effective.
