Overview

When extreme weather or other natural disasters hit a region, having a clear view of the extent and types of damage is critical for effective emergency response. In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, the use of timely oblique imagery and on-line GIS damage assessment tools provided emergency responders the abilities to see the damage, rate the storm’s impact, and communicate to the public the progress of recovery. Specific case studies of impacted areas in northern Florida will be presented.
