Devastating image

DirectionsMag is running some 1m satellite photos of the devastation at Bam, Iran. The photo of the 2,000 year old citadel is astounding.

From an article found on the GIS Monitor site:

… the U.S. Geological Survey, working with Redlands-based ESRI, produced computer-generated maps that predicted mudslides could occur in the area of Waterman Canyon, where at least 13 people were killed when mud, trees and boulders flowed through a church camp. …

San Bernardino County officials said they were not confident that the maps were precise enough to warrant sweeping evacuations.
