Collection Management Tool (CMT)

The Collection Management Tool (CMT) allows users to view the events being supported through USGS Emergency Response. Through the CMT, users can view the areas-of-interest (AOIs) submitted for a given event and monitor the collection progress for the previously submitted AOIs. 

The CMT is integrated with HDDS, so that as imagery is collected for a given AOI, there is a direct link to the HDDS system for image download.

The CMT also allows submission of a new request for image collection, or creation of a new or modified AOI in relation to a previous request.
