Throughout history, natural disasters have constantly plagued humanity, the greatest damage was caused by earthquakes, taking many lives, destroying cities and infrastructure. Determining the results of an earthquake, namely damages and destructions of buildings is one of the main needs in dealing with the consequences of a natural disaster. Recently, natural disasters caused by anthropogenic phenomena have increased in the world. Therefore, the scientific study of the destructions caused by cataclysms of natural origin is an extremely important problem. Involvement of digital photogrammetry and geoinformation technologies is very effective in this matter. The area that has been destroyed on a large scale on the Earth's surface needs to be determined with the help of satellite images and remote sensing data. The main purpose of the work is the processing of digital satellite images obtained from the GeoEye-1 satellite on 15.07.2017 and 18.11.2017, in order to identify areas affected by the earthquake on the border of Iraq and Iran. Namely, part of the city of Sarpol-e Zahabb, located in Iran. When performing the work, a comparison of the automatic and manual methods was used. During the experimental studies, photogrammetric, cartographic methods and methods of remote sensing of the Earth were used. The work was performed using the Erdas Imagine software and he Delta CUE module. The technique of determining the difference indicators of the earthquake consequences by the automatic method is described. The results of the work can be used to calculate losses after natural disasters. As the results of detecting the area of damaged objects due to the earthquake it was found in automatic mode that 61 objects were damaged, and the total area of damage is 19103m2, the area of the largest object is 3300m2.
