    • Open Data Project Achieving Social Good Through Efficient Use Of Open Data Sources
    • Steps Toward Success
        • Identify a problem
        • Look for open data sources
        • Apply open data toward resolving problem
    • Problem Statement Disaster response workers lack convenient access to recent aerial imagery
    • Critical Uses of Near Real Time Imagery
        • Identify pre-event conditions
        • Identify extent of impacts
        • Develop “birds-eye” strategies
    • We know that imagery data exists, but lack convenient access in the field Refining the Problem:
    • Solution 1. Identify Open Data Sources 2. Create An Interface
    • NASA A Treasure Trove of Open Data
    • MODIS Rapid Response System http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov /
    • The MODIS Rapid Response System was    developed to provide daily satellite images of    the Earth's landmasses in near real time.    True-color, photo-like imagery and false-color    imagery are available within a few hours of    being collected, making the system a valuable   resource for organizations...
    • Modis Lacks A Convenient Field-Usable Interface
    • Modis data is only available in the form of single, gigantic (90M) files which are split by region. 
    • We set up a "tile server" and imported key files into this server.  We then use the Open Layers platform to display this data in a user-friendly manner which can be scrolled through, zoomed, etc. 
    • Problem Resolved! We Now Have A Convenient User Interface Which Accesses Near Real Time  Earth Imagery.
