Rockhampton Airport (post flooding)
About This Image
This one-meter resolution satellite image shows the Rockhampton Airport after extensive flooding occurred in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. The image was collected by GeoEye’s IKONOS satellite on January 5, 2011, one day after the airport was officially closed in anticipation of the Fitzroy River crest. Commercial imagery is an important tool to assess damage and help plan effective relief operations—especially when compared with a pre-flood image of the same area.
