An interesting data tip came into yours truly over Twitter via user @RSchultzSNHU introducing us to a data resource called OpenAerialMap
OpenAerialMap (OAM) is a collection of openly licensed satellite and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery. OAM is an open service that will provide storage and serach of this imagery.
Imagery is being generated more and more, however after a disaster it is difficult to determine what imagery is available and where to access it. OAM seeks to solve this by providing a simple, open way to process and provide imagery for humanitarian response and disaster preparedness.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in OpenAerialMap. Check out the GitHub repository to learn more about the design and how to get involved in the project.
