In 2004, after Hurricane Ivan, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) received numerous requests from citizens to post some of our post-storm data immediately on the web. Last year, we did not have the technology to do that, but in 2005, we have acquired technology to post small amounts of relatively contiguous areas of oblique aerial photographs on the web soon after a storm. These single storm products will supplement our pre- and post- storm comparisons of both laser altimetry (lidar) and aerial photography that will remain our primary focus.
All USGS products are in the public domain, so users may use them free of charge without copyright restriction. For the experimental products, we will post our maximum resolution on the web. Again, you are welcome to download the photos, but we will not have higher resolution images available for this product.
For Hurricane Dennis, we have chosen the area of Navarre Beach, FL to test the experimental storm response product. This area was impacted intensely both by both Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and by Hurricane Dennis in 2005 as can be seen in the triplets posted at: http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/hurricanes/dennis2005/photosets.html.Overview Photo for Navarre Beach
