fred witteveen: A combination of two satellite images of the Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, taken a year apart, according to Toronto Star. The images show how the geography and topography of the area have changed as trees and vegetation have vanished while the camp expands. Fred Witteveen, the national director of World Vision Bangladesh, watched as refugees climbed the bamboo poles and lay on their plastic roofs to stop their homes from being blown away. The image on the left was taken on Feb. 8, 2017, and the image on the right on Feb. 8, 2018. The images contain modified Copernicus Sentinel-2 data, 2017 & 2018. With monsoon season underway, the world's largest camp is in danger of flooding and landslides. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
