Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, viewed by Pléiades satellites, before and after the passage of Cyclone Pam

Mar 19, 2015 -- Following Cyclone Pam, Airbus Defence and Space has acquired Pléiades and SPOT 6 & 7 imagery over the Island nation of Vanuatu to support the International Charter and Copernicus Emergency Management Service.

The data acquired will assist in assessing the damage and help rescue organisations in the delivery of humanitarian aid.

The before and after Pléiades images over Port Vila, that can be downloaded here, show the devastation caused by the cyclone. The “before” Pléiades image was acquired on April 9, 2014, and the “after” Pléiades image was acquired on March 16, 2015, three days after the Cyclone hit Port Vila.

    The building in the center left position of the imagery looked most affected by the cyclone. In terms of the imagery quality, the after one looks more sharper and cleared in comparison to the before one. Perhaps another change detection analysis output of the differences can be shown as well to assist layman viewers.
