This is the Flash flood susceptibility map of Dominica, made by the CHARIM project (www.charim.net). It was made using the event-based hydrological software LISEM for 5, 10, 20 and 50 years return period rainfall events.

This is the landslide inventory map made by the CHARIM project (www.charim.net), together with the landslides mapped from 1988 to 2015, including the landslides triggered by TS Erika.

Land use map of Dominica generated under the Caribbean Land cover project (CarLand) which was operational some years ago responded to regional needs identified by donor organizations and national interests in the Caribbean. The regional project was a direct outgrowth of the support of a Global Development Alliance (US AID), an alliance for regional planning in MesoAmerica and the Caribbean. "The Mesoamerican and Caribbean Geospatial Alliance" (MACGA) was proposed by numerous alliance members to undertake concerted region-wide efforts in Central America and the Caribbean to aid and modernize the development, access, and applications of spatial data. The project aimed to create the baseline vegetation and land-cover map and data layer, using satellite imagery and ancillary data. Land use and natural vegetation maps were made using a hybrid image analysis approach, funded by USAID.
