NASA Satellite Imagery of the Indochina Floods of 2011

Posted on Updated on

I have been working on showing some clients the extent of the flooding in Thailand and during my search for recent satellite images Amy Kunrojpanya ( @AKunrojpanya ) from Google very kindly shared a link to NASA’s rapid response website :

NASA’s images have been extremely useful to my clients and incredibly enlightening for me.

I spent a few minutes this morning with the kmz files of these NASA images in Google Earth to put together the following animated gif showing the extent of the flooding in Indochina from 1st January 2011 to the 3rd November 2011.

All of the images that I used to make this file (and many more besides) are available at NASA’s Rapid Response website, in the link provided above.
