Australian Floods - Overview of online (mapping) resources

[Last updated 14 Jan 2011, 3:40 PM AEDST]

Source: smh.com.au 
There is an abundance of information and mapping resources springing up online to deal with the
ongoing Australian floods.

I have compiled an overview of online resources that can assist the affected communities in dealing with this disaster while it happens, and in the aftermath.

NOTE - RESOURCE LISTINGS HAVE BEEN MOVED TO REGION SPECIFIC PAGES:


As resources will come and go, this will be a bit of a moving feast, but with your help, I will try & keep it as current and accurate as possible.

If you have any suggestions or links to be added, please comment below, or send me a tweet (@mvandervlugt) or email (mauritsrutger -at- gmail.com).

And please share these pages with others!

    1. Thanks Maurits for creating this compilation. Certainly, there is a lot to look at. I would like to add my own map to the list, just to put the things into perspective as to the full extent of flooding in Qld:

      http://www.aus-emaps.com/svs/ref/map.php?kmzl=QLD_floods_Nov10_Jan11,Queensland_Floods_Jan11&svs=1,1&xyz=135,-26,3

      The second map is from SBS, identical as in your post.

    2. Hi again Maurits,

      Wow, the list is growing fast! Since you have added NSW to the list, I would like to put forward another of my recently created maps.

      NSW Disasters Declared Areas in 2010:

    3. The catastrophic areas those were affected last year, new water flows and areas have also under view in Sindh province of Pakistan. About 22 out of 23 districts of Sindh have been affected; districts which hosted millions of people fleeing from their homes in the past floods are now under water and in need.
