Flood Inundation Mapping and Monitoring

CEGIS has been using Microwave Remote Sensing Technology for monsoon flood mapping and monitoring since 1993. The catastrophic flood event of 1998 was mapped and monitored in the Near Real Time (NRT) mode throughout the monsoon period. The flood damage map of crops and settlements due to devastating flood in the South-West in 2000 was prepared and the maps and flood damage statistics were disseminated to Government Agencies, NGOs and daily newspapers. The national level and local level flood extent map were produced regularly in monsoon period of2003 and 2004 and emailed to stake holders. The flood extent map and crop damage map due to flash flood in the haor region in 2017 were prepared using Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 Satellite Images.
