Haiti: Post-Earthquake Satellite Maps

To aid rescue efforts and asses the damage, satellite imagery companies GeoEye and Digital Globe stepped in to provide high-resolution imagery of devastated Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas. The original imagery is available from the respective websites. To make the distribution (and sharing) of these maps easier, we’ve converted them into interactive maps.
