Disaster  events such  as earthquakes,  hurricanes, and floods  cause loss of human lives  and create substantial economic  damage. Lack of information about  affected communities and the level  of damage restricts first-responder efforts  and hinders efficient response

coordination  by authorities. FDL Europe  has been enriching high-resolution  optical satellite images with multi-temporal,  low-resolution multi-spectral optical and radar satellite  imagery to automate the creation of EO-based disaster impact  maps for first responders, affected communities and aid/assistance  coordinators.
