Thailand Floods - Google Crisis Response


In Thailand flood waters have swamped more than two-thirds of the country. Google Crisis Response has created a Google Map for the 2011 Thailand Floods.

As well as providing emergency contact information for people in the country the map contains a number of selectable layers. The map's initial view shows the flood affected areas across Thailand. It is also possible to view:
  • Flooding extents
  • Recent satellite imagery
  • Bangkok risk areas and water barriers
  • Shelters
  • Parking areas
  • Flooded highways
