GDIN, the Global
Disaster Information Network, is asking its partners to acquire
data this morning to assess damage to population centers in western
India from this morning's 7.9-magnitude earthquake. Please note
that when possible, this information will be shared with all of
our information partners in order to help the Indians obtain the
best damage assessment maps possible.
Base maps of
the impacted area tend to be very old, making the development of
current maps difficult. We are seeking current (or as current as
available) "street-level (1: 50,000 or better scale preferred, 1:100
accepted) of the following population centers: We will accept GIS
(softcopy -- arcview, mapinfo...) maps or even hardcopy maps showing
the cities and surrounding areas and can work out methods of delivery.
Email information to email@example.com.
If you have hard copy maps, FEDEX them to GDIN's Virginia office
at 26128 Talamore Drive, South Riding, Virginia 20152.
I would also
mention that if you go to the GDIN Products section of www.gdin.org
you will find GDIN products on the Galapagos Islands oil spill
and the El Salvador earthquake.
thank you to SPOT, Space Imaging, and the European Space Agency
for assistance in the El Salvador crisis.
