Though you're still unlikely to hear much about the contribution
General Aviation is making to the Katrina recovery effort, one
Cessna is having an inestimable impact on Hurricane
releif after it was used to map much of the devastation left
by Hurricane Katrina.
Flown on a rigorous number of high-resolution photo passes at
7500 feet, the photo paths are now being posted online by NOAA so
that people can inspect areas of interest, in order to judge the
extent of damage and flooding still in the area.
The entire area has yet to be fully photographed, but affected
parties have been advised to use these maps in an effort to find
their respective neighborhoods and that updates will be posted as
soon as they are available.
The maps have been segmented into a multitude of areas with
small rectangles signifying the photo paths taken by the Cessna.
Users then click on the small black boxes, approximating their area
of interest, to zoom to the overhead pictures and/or use the back
button in their Internet browser to return to the main map to
select other maps and photos.
