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

How about updating Google Earth with NEW satellite pictures of ALL of Thailand. As an example, Nakhon Ratchasima has pictures that is more than 10 years old.

NOT good Google Earth!!
