Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria damage assessments

Zooniverse, the University of Oxford and the Planetary Response Network, in collaboration with Rescue Global, are working to create heat maps of hurricane damage in the Caribbean. We are sharing these maps with other disaster response and recovery organisations to use in the coordination of efforts.

The heat maps are intended to give an approximate indication of priority areas of greatest damage or need, in order to supplement assessments and ground truth intelligence. They are generated by crowdsourced classification of satellite imagery, using algorithms developed by the University of Oxford. Currently, these heat maps show data collected after Hurricane Irma, before Hurricane Maria. We are now working to create further maps of the impact of Hurricane Maria, with a focus on Dominica, which will be added to this page as soon as they are completed.
