Request from IFRC to generate as much base data as possible in the next 5 days; MAXAR released imagery; Mapbox and Missing Maps partner - HeiGIT - rapid preliminary damage assessment project on Mapswipe;
Haiti Earthquake - after Tropical Storm Grace passed over the earthquake zone, wind and rain added complications to the response efforts and caused additional damage.
- We received a request from the IFRC in the region to generate as much base data as possible in the next 5 days. Therefore we have continued to add mapping projects in the impacted area (see here).
- MAXAR quickly released imagery of the area post-event and our partners at Mapbox and our Missing Maps - HeiGIT - was able to create a rapid preliminary damage assessment project on Mapswipe - note this is an experimental way to do remote damage assessment and therefore our priority will remain generating the pre-event base data.
