NGA opens Hurricane Dorian web portal

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is providing geospatial support for areas affected by Hurricane Dorian at the request of the State Department and the Department of Defense to aid in support of acute humanitarian response and recovery efforts, the agency announced September 11.

Upon receiving the official requests, NGA opened a web portal to make imagery, products and mapping data publicly accessible for areas affected by Hurricane Dorian.

NGA supports humanitarian and disaster relief efforts by working directly with the lead federal agencies responding to fires, floods, earthquakes, landslides, hurricanes or other natural or manmade disasters.

By making this information publicly available, NGA not only supports U.S. government efforts, but the combined efforts of the international community and non-governmental organizations to provide urgent relief to the people of the Bahamas. NGA products are available through the Hurricane Dorian portal.
