Satellite Images Reveal Earthquake/Tsunami Damage in Japan

Satellite imagery provided dramatic before-and-after perspectives after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japan’s coast on March 11, 2011. The imagery provided an assessment of the damage seen at the two Fukushima nuclear power plants (Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushima Daini) and in Sendai, a port city in northeastern Japan. The imagery reveals widespread destruction,

Tassili n’Ajjer National Park

Tassili n’Ajjer National Park covers 72,000 square kilometers (27,800 square miles) in southeastern Algeria. Part of the Sahara Desert, the park has a bone-dry climate with scant rainfall, yet does not blend in with Saharan dunes. Instead, the rocky plateau rises above the surrounding sand seas. Rich in geologic and human history, Tassili n’Ajjer is

DATA SHARING: Mexico City Increases Emergency Response Capacity

On Sept. 19, 1985, Mexico City experienced one of the most devastating earthquakes in history. The magnitude 8.1 quake shook the city in two separate tremors, burying more than 10,000 people amid the rubble. Mexico City officials and citizens commemorate the event by conducting an annual citywide evacuation and simulation, organized by the city’s Civil

GEOGRAPHIC SEARCH AND REFERENCING: DoD Supercharges Location-Based Intelligence Transfer from the Analyst to the Warfighter

It’s not a lack of information that hinders today’s defense operations; it’s a lack of information convergence. A typical Department of Defense (DoD) unit has tens of millions of unstructured documents at its disposal, in addition to scores of aerial- and ground-based sensor data. But to be useful, all of that data must be correlated,
