The Mw 7.0 Haiti earthquake of 12 January 2010 caused devastating damage to the already improvised nation. Remotely sensed images were used for loss estimation as part of the Post Disaster Needs Assessment process. The field mission by the Earthquake Engineering Field Investigating Team in April 2010 provided the opportunity to assess the accuracy of this damage assessment. Results from these assessment exercises were described.
