According to the UN, theÂ recent floods in Pakistan have affected over 4 million individuals – and the human toll continues to grow. Disease is an ever-increasing risk as relief agencies rush to the aid of those who have been hurt or displaced.
Googleâ€™s Crisis Response team has provided satellite imagery andÂ KML layers to assist relief efforts in past disasters, including theÂ Haiti earthquake and recentÂ Gulf of Mexico oil spill. In Pakistan, however, the cloud cover over the impacted areas has inhibited our ability to make this valuable content available. The Crisis Response team is looking to collect and aggregate imagery and user generated KML, or other map data, with the goal of making this content more accessible to both crisis responders and the general public. Weâ€™re hoping you can help. You can submit links to KML and map data via the followingÂ form. Weâ€™ll contact you if we are able to publish your content.
