Welcome to USGS Emergency Response
USGS Emergency Response strives to ensure that the disaster response community has rapid access to timely, accurate, and relevant geospatial imagery, products, and services before, during, and after a disaster.
When disasters strike, pre- and post-event imagery can provide critical information regarding the extent, severity, and evolution of the event. USGS Emergency Response supports the coordination of remotely sensed data acquisitions and distribution
Over the past decade, we've supported the response to hundreds of domestic and international disaster events. We provides access to remotely sensed imagery and geospatial datasets to agencies engaged in disaster response.
