A ton more data from the Pakistan flooding

Last month, we told you about Google’s quest for more data to help with the massive flooding in Pakistan.

The “Unigeo initiative for Pakistan” has been developing a network link that has a ton of data related to the Pakistan flood.


The latest version (4.1) includes a slight “pre-loaded” transparency on the layers in order to keep the underlying information visible as well as a more ergonomic search panel.

Currently, the included layers are:

• Pakistan affected districts – 2010 Aug 16
• Flooding General overview – 2010 Aug 11
• Floods in Charsadda district – 2010 Aug 02
• Situation in Kheshgi area – 2010 Aug 04
• Charsadda and Nowshera districts – 2010 July
• Situation in Hyderabad – 2010 Aug 29
• Red Cross + Red Crescent Society – 2010 Aug 29

You can get the full KML file here, or check out their site for more information.

Another great resource to check out would be local.com.pk, which has quite a bit of excellent information regarding flood relief. For example, their Hunza Landslide page is very well done, and was featured in a recent TEDxLahore talk, which you can view here.
