We analyzed the change in vegetated and urban (impervious) area in the Silang-Santa Rosa sub-watershed of the Philippines to assess the implications related to flood risk. Our main findings were:

-The impervious area of sub-watershed increased by 54% (from 3,239 ha. to 4,988 ha.).
-The vegetated area decreased by 21% (from 8,509 ha. to 6,760 ha)....

We developed a method for mapping residential areas using freely available satellite imagery. The resultant residential area map can be used for risk assessment (e.g. to estimate the population living in a flood-prone area). Our method can be applied for flood risk assessment in other watersheds in the future.
