Full text about local flooding in Poland will be added soon...
The objective of the ESA project was to assess the area flooded in May and June 2010 in Poland. Data gathered by various satellites with radar sensor were used at the chosen test sites. These included microwave satellite images such as ALOS.PALSAR, ENVISAT.ASAR and ERS-2.SAR. Microwave satellite images were used for mapping the extent of flooding.
Institute of Geodesy and Cartography once again in its history has used satellite remote sensing methods for mapping flood extent. The accompanying maps present the situation in the valley of the Vistula and San, on 6 June 2010 and in the valley of Odra on 9 June 2010. The flood wave range has been superimposed on a map showing land use in districts located along both sides of the rivers.
