Earthquake in Pakistan
A series of severe earthquakes (max. magnitude 7.6) struck the Kashmir region on October 8, 2005. The epicenter was located on the India-Pakistan border, about 100 kilometres northeast of Islamabad.
DLR-ZKI, in cooperation with its partners from the "International Charter - Space and Major Disasters", RESPOND and the Space Imaging Consortium, was generating up-to-date relief support information (maps, images, etc.) which were being made available to relief organisations.
A Landsat ETM image gives an overview (1:100.000) of the region affected by the earthquake. Within this region, several maps derived from very high resolution IKONOS imagery give a clear overview of Muzaffarabad, Abbottabad and Manshera in detail (1:7.500).
