Estimate of the number of storeys in buildings in the Baillergeau and Campeche districts in Haiti. The buildings are derived from a Google aerial image. The number of storeys is estimated using LIDAR (World Bank - ImageCat) data acquired on 21 January 2010. This image was produced by SERTIT (Regional Agency for Image Processing and Remote Sensing), an ICube laboratory platform. Geospatial information derived from satellite imagery is used in the fields of risk prevention and post-disaster monitoring. In the context of development aid, SERTIT operates in support of territorial planning, NGOs or national and international institutions to acquire satellite data throughout the crisis management phase, providing advice, expertise and training.
