Hurricane Katrina: Assisting the US Army Corps of Engineers
Hurricane Katrina was the costliest and one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. Emergency response crews needed up to date imagery to assist rescue and relief efforts. These teams were able to use imagery in their operations on the ground by using compressed ECW image mosaics.
US Border Patrol
