RapidEye Releases Change Detection in Chile

RapidEye, a geospatial information provider, using their own before and after imagery of the city of Concepcion, Chile, recorded the changes caused by the 8.8 magnitude earthquake on February 27, 2010. The region around the city of Concepcion was the most affected by the earthquake.

The damage was recorded by comparing the satellite images taken on January 22, 2010 with the satellite images taken only hours after the earthquake. The document identifies changes to buildings, landslides in forested areas and others which could be beneficial to the humanitarian aid activity in the region.
