Google And GeoEye Bring High Resolution To The Devastation

The Google Geo team and their partner GeoEye have released high resolution layers to the Google Earth and Google Map views of Haiti in an effort to aid relief workers and provide the rest of the world a closer look at the devastation. "With the hope of furthering awareness and relief efforts, we arranged for a collection of the Port-au-Prince area at even higher resolution (approximately 15cm) to complement the existing imagery." The imagery demonstrates the scope of the damage and gives a sense of what the country is dealing with in the wake of the disaster.
