Floods 2014: Final results of analysis of flooded areas for the part of the west Serbia and for the municipality of Krupanj are published

Republic geodetic authority published on national geoportal “geoSrbija” final results of analysis of flooded areas for the part of the west Serbia and for the municipality of Krupanj.

On the 30th of July 2014, final results of analysis of flooded areas for the part of the west Serbia and for the municipality of Krupanj, were published on national geoportal “geoSrbija” at the category Floods.

Within realization of project of “Establishment of national infrastructure of geospatial data and Centre for remote sensing of the Republic of Serbia – based on IGIS system “, employed at Section for remote sensing by usage of software packages of Overland and eCognition and based on the provided:

  • images of SPOT6 optical satellite system with resolution of pan 1,5 m / ms 6 m, for the part of west Serbia covering the area of 3 459 km2, acquired on 21st of May 2014;

  • image of Pleides optical satellite system with resolution of pan 0,5 m / ms 2 m, for the municipality of Krupanj covering the area of 396 km2, acquired on 21st of May 2014;

  • image of Pleides optical satellite system with resolution of pan 0,5 m / ms 2 m, for the municipality of Krupanj covering the area of 408 km2, acquired on 08th of June 2014;

have performed analysis of volume and distribution of areas covered by water and areas where soil is saturated by water. In addition to this analysis, based on digital orthophoto of 40cm resolution produced within CARDS project, epochs July 2009 and August 2010, and images of Pleides optical satellite system of 21st of May and 08th of June 2014, analysis of volume and distribution of potential landslides on the territory of municipality of Krupanj was performed.

Application of remote sensing technologies at the event of natural disasters effectively provides spatial information about the extent of affected areas and intensity of natural disasters, which are of great importance in the process of protection system planning and optimal decision making while repairing the consequences of disasters.
