Remote Sensing Information and Data

During disaster response, the Mapping and Analysis Center (MAC) may receive remote sensing data that indicates areas affected by the disaster, as derived from various imagery products. Typical examples include flooded, saturated, and/or damaged areas. You will find maps that use this type of data on many of our map pages.

The MAC is permitted to share this remote sensing data with the public. The primary purpose for making this data available is so that various businesses with vested interests, such as insurance agencies, may apply it to their particular needs.

Please note that GIS software is required to use this data.

Our standard format for sharing this data is ESRI shapefiles consists of multiple files.
