Hurricane Katrina Update

I’ve been reorganizing my categories a bit; my Hurricane Katrina entries now have their own category.

More satellite imagery: Before and after satellite images from Landsat’s before and after images seem to have more detail than the others. NASA has posted a new photo of the levee breach which seems to be a subset of Digital Globe’s image (which I posted yesterday); see previous NASA Katrina images here and here.

Google Earth overlays: Google has released the first (official) Google Earth overlays for the Hurricane Katrina aftermath, with more promised. Via Google Earth Blog.

Newspapers: Infographics from the New York Times and Washington Post are helpful and make use of recent satellite imagery. The LA Times’s map of the levee system (PDF) is also useful. Via Cartography and Cartotalk.
