Downloadable satellite image maps of the Pakistan earthquake area
to support the disaster relief effort
ITC has produced 49 maps at scale 1:50,000 of the complete Pakistan earthquake area to aid relief workers and agencies in the field. After registration, these maps are freely downloadable.
The maps are based on satellite imagery with a resolution of 15 m and show land cover, relief (mountains/hill shading), main roads, rivers, 200 m contour lines and village names. The maps cover approximately a 100 km radius around the epicentre of the earthquake; the total area covered by the maps is about 30,000 km2. All imagery has been ortho-rectified; all resulting maps have coordinates and can thus be used with a GPS. 
The maps are offered in PDF format, are about 25 MB in size each, and can be printed on ISO-A1 paper. Each map sheet covers an area of approximately 23 by 27 km.
