    The GAR15 global exposure database is based on a top-down approach where statistical information including socio-economic, building type, and capital stock at a national level are transposed onto the grids of 5x5 or 1x1 using geographic distribution of population data and gross domestic product (GDP) as proxies.

    This map illustrates satellite-detected urban areas that were affected by flash flooding along the Matanikau River in Honiara, capital city of the Solomon Islands. Analysis was conducted using a Resurs-P panchromatic image acquired the 08th and the 13th of April 2014. Traces of waters can be seen in urban areas along the Matakinau River and ~ 100 houses seem to have been washed out and/or flooded by the flash flooding event in the identified areas. A bridge in the Chinatown neighbourhood appears to be totally destroyed, however the main bridge further north seems intact. The exact limit of flood affected zones is uncertain because of the sensor characteristics of the satellite data and the nature of the vent (flash flood). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
