This map presents a satellite-based damage assessment for the affected villages of Eredvi, Berula & Argvitsi, South Ossetia, Georgia following the armed conflict between Georgian and Russian military forces in August 2008. Damaged buildings have been identified with Ikonos & WorldView-1 satellite imagery acquired on 10 & 19 August 2008. Building damages have been classified by their date of detection as well as by the degree of damage. An estimated 94% of buildings were likely damaged or destroyed between the dates of 10 and 19 August 2008. The satellite-detected active fire data recorded daily supports this date estimate, suggesting further that most building damages likely occurred on 12-13 August (please see the fire map inset). Additional fire-related damages may also have occurred on 22 August, however this is not reflected in the damage figures presented in this map. Affected buildings were classified either as destroyed or severely damaged by standard image interpretation methods. Destroyed buildings have been defined by the total collapse of the structure or when it was standing but with less than 50% of the roof still intact. Severely damaged buildings were defined as having visible structural damage to a portion of one wall, or where a section of the roof was damaged but with over 50% of the roof still intact. This is an initial damage assessment and has not yet been independently validated on the ground. Please send additions/corrections to UNOSAT.

This map presents a satellite-based damage assessment for the affected village of Avnevi, South Ossetia, Georgia following the armed conflict between Georgian and Russian military forces, August 2008. Damaged buildings have been identified with WorldView-1 & Formosat-2 satellite imagery acquired on 19 August 2008. Pre-conflict QuickBird imagery in Google Earth was also used. Affected buildings were classified either as destroyed or severely damaged by standard satellite image interpretation methods. Destroyed buildings have been defined either by the total collapse of the structure or when it was standing but with less than 50% of the roof still intact. Severely damaged buildings were defined as having visible structural damage to a portion of one wall, or where a section of the roof was damaged but with over 50% of the roof still intact. The estimated total number of affected buildings for the selected village is approximately 153. Of this total 116 buildings have likely been destroyed and 37 buildings have likely been severely damaged. An important preliminary finding of this satellite damage analysis is the observed heavy concentration of damages within clearly defined residential areas. This is an initial damage assessment and has not yet been independently validated on the ground. Map scale for A3: 1:5,400; Projection : Pulkovo 1995 GK Zone 8N; Datum : Pulkovo 1995.

Damaged buildings have been identified with WorldView-1 & Formosat-2 satellite imagery acquired on 19 August 2008. Affected buildings were classified either as destroyed or severely damaged by standard satellite image interpretation methods. Destroyed buildings have been defined either by the total collapse of the structure or when it was standing but with less than 50% of the roof still intact. Severely damaged buildings were defined as having visible structural damage to a portion of one wall, or where a section of the roof was damaged but with over 50% of the roof still intact. The estimated total number of affected buildings for the selected villages is approximately 1,050. Of this total 794 buildings have likely been destroyed and 256 buildings have likely been severely damaged. A further 5,372 buildings were identified as showing no visible damage in the available satellite imagery. An important preliminary finding of this satellite damage analysis is the observed heavy concentration of damages within clearly defined residential areas. Please note, this is an initial damage assessment and has not yet been independently validated on the ground. Map scale for A3: 1:48,500; Projection : Pulkovo 1995 GK Zone 8N; Datum : Pulkovo 1995.

This atlas overview presents a satellite-based damage assessment for the affected area between Kekhvi and Tskhinvali, South Ossetia, Georgia following the armed conflict between Georgian and Russian military forces, August 2008. Damaged buildings have been identified with WorldView-1 and Formosat-2 satellite imagery acquired on 19 August 2008.
Affected buildings have been classified either as destroyed or severely damaged by image interpretation methods. Destroyed buildings were defined either by the total collapse of the structure or where it was standing but with less than 50% of the roof still intact. Severely damaged buildings were defined as having visible structural damage to a limited portion of one wall, or where a portion of the roof was damaged but with more than 50% of the roof still intact.
The estimated number of affected buildings within the mapped extent of each atlas sheet is described in a damage summary box. The estimated total number of affected buildings for the whole of the atlas series is 1,030. Of this total 787 buildings have likely been destroyed and 243 buildings have likely been severely damaged. Also marked within the atlas are buildings which were visibly burning while the satellite image was recorded on 19 August 2008.
An important preliminary finding of this satellite damage analysis is the observed heavy concentration of damages within clearly defined residential areas.
Each atlas map sheet shown in this overview is hyperlinked either to the individual maps on-line or within the PDF document.
Please note, this is an initial damage assessment and has not yet been independently validated on the ground.

This map illustrates satellite-detected active fire locations of the towns north and east of Tskhinvali, South Ossetia, Georgia during and after the armed conflict between Georgian and Russian military forces. These fire locations were detected by the MODIS Aqua and Terra satellites covering the time period from 7 to 24 August 2008, and are sorted by date of detection. An assessment has been made of the chronology and spatial context of this data, and it is highly probable that such detected fires are directly linked to the armed conflict, and potentially to the reported cases of arson. An inset image of a burning building recorded on 19 August helps illustrate the context of the fires. This map update illustrates a cluster of new fires north and east of Tskhinvali detected on 22 August 2008. Please note this fire data product does not discriminate between natural fires (e.g. forest fire) and those resulting from arson or conflict, and has not been independently verified on the ground. Also note this product has not recorded all fires in this area because of limited duration, area affected or dense cloud cover, and thus does not represent all potential damage areas.

BottomRight: 41.687 x 43.837

This map illustrates satellite-detected active fire locations near the nature reserve of Borjomi. Fire data from the MODIS satellite system indicates active fires were located outside of Borjomi, approximately 9-10 km east of the park boundary, with smoke and ashes blowing to the west over the park. The fires were first detected on the morning of 15 August 2008 and continued for at least 24 hours. Imagery recorded on 17 and 19 August shows no active fires, however there is still smoke visible. As shown in the image map from 17 August, the visible fire scar is approximately 450ha in area. Map Scale for A3: 1:290,000; Projection : Pulkovo 1995 GK Zone 8N; Datum : Pulkovo 1995.
