Preliminary Remote Sensing Map

This map highlights preliminary remote sensing priority areas for collection.

In anticipation of severe flooding likely to occur across portions of the central U.S., FEMA requires access to unclassified commercial Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) to ascertain flood extents. It is estimated that flooding will likely occur through this weekend (January 3, 2016).

In addition, FEMA requests access to the raw SAR data collected as part of this effort in order for us (FEMA) to provide value-added analysis/flood extent delineation.
