Haiti GIS Viewer

With the dire situation in Haiti there's a lot of spatial data including hi-resolution satellite imagery and from-the-ground vector data being generated to support the emergency humanitarian effort. The ESRI GEOSS/ GEO Viewer mentioned in the previous post is doing a great job of updating what it offers and providing an integrated view from the flood of data. It's a little slow, but I understand that it's had to make the leap from demonstration prototype to operational resource in a hurry; so full credit to the people behind it for doing so.
