Help improve our ability to use imagery as part of the damage assessment GEOCAN process—participate in a current effort in Christchurch New Zealand!

As presidents of NZSEE and EERI, we are asking for your participation in a new online earthquake damage assessment of Christchurch New Zealand, using an innovative online tool to analyze the imagery — the Tomnod Disaster Mapper. This tool has been developed as part of EERI and NZSEE’s cooperative effort in GEO-CAN (Global Earth Observation-Catastrophe Assessment Network).
