A recent addition to the ArcGIS.com gallery is the Tuscaloosa Tornado Response map by Kevin Armstrong, GIS solutions engineer at Esri-Charlotte. The map has been compiled using authoritative data from the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and shows the tornado’s path with post-damage imagery, the damage swath, water distribution facilities, and curfew areas.
You’ll also find a Southeast Tornado Response group, also created by Kevin, where a variety of maps, apps, and other shared resources can be found. These resources include recent GeoEye Ikonos-2 imagery acquired just after the tornados struck, and published as ArcGIS image services.
