Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, viewed by Pléiades satellites, before and after the passage of Cyclone Pam

Downtown of Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, viewed by Pléiades satellites, before the passage of Cyclone Pam

Following Cyclone Pam, Airbus Defence and Space has acquired Pléiades and SPOT 6 & 7 imagery over the Island nation of Vanuatu to support the International Charter and Copernicus Emergency Management Service. The data acquired will assist in assessing the damage and help rescue organisations in the delivery of humanitarian aid.

The before and after Pléiades images over Port Vila, that can be downloaded here, show the devastation caused by the cyclone. The “before” Pléiades image was acquired on April 9, 2014, and the “after” Pléiades image was acquired on March 16, 2015, three days after the Cyclone hit Port Vila.
