Satellite Imagery: DigitalGlobe Releases High-Resolution Satellite Images of Hurricane Irma Damage
September 11, 2017 Earth Imaging - Remote Sensing

As Hurricane Irma churned through the Caribbean and up Florida’s coast, DigitalGlobe’s satellites have been capturing high-resolution images of the storm’s damage. Imaging in the Caribbean became possible over the weekend as the clouds moved out of the area.

Before-and-after imagery taken between Friday, Sept. 8 and Sept. 11 of several places in the Caribbean: Tortola, Turks and Caicos, Sint Maarten, Necker Island, Barbuda and Saint Martin. The “after” images were taken by DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3, WorldView-2 and GeoEye-1 satellites.

DigitalGlobe has also publicly released pre- and post-event satellite imagery of the areas affected by Hurricane Irma through our Open Data Program, which provides imagery to support recovery efforts in the wake of large-scale natural disasters. Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) set up mapping tasks for Irma using DigitalGlobe imagery in preparation for the storm. Additional tasks will be established once more post-event imagery is available, as will a Tomnodcrowdsourcing campaign.
