The prompt detection, mapping and assessment of urban damages due to earthquakes is a key point, particularly in remote areas or where the infrastructures are not well developed to ensure the necessary communication exchanges or where their operability has strongly decreased as a consequence of the event. The combination of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data and optical images is a promising and suitable approach. We propose two test cases, the 1999 Izmit (Turkey) and the 2003 Bam (Iran… CONTINUE READING
