The images cover a total area of 13,125 km² and show the most damaged area around the city of
Concepción. They were taken on Saturday, February 27th, 2010 at around 11:00 a.m. local time, only a few
hours after the earthquake hit the area at 3:34 a.m. in the morning local time. In order to be able to run
change detection analyses, RapidEye also has images available of the very same area take a couple of days
before the event.
RapidEye is concentrating on delivering these and future images of the region at no cost to governmental
and non governmental help organizations and institutions in need of the most current Earth Observation
information available for this region. If your organization is involved in emergency efforts for this devastating
