Specifically, via the Google Crisis Map, you can select these areas for post-Sandy Imagery:
- Beach Haven to Cape May, NJ
- Spring Lake to Harvey Cedars, NJ
- Little Assawoman Bay, DE to Assateague Island, MD
The satellite images can also be downloaded as a KML file to use with Google Earth.
The imagery was captured yesterday (October 31, 2012) by the NOAA-National Geodetic Survey.
The Google Crisis Map also includes handheld photography of Manasquan, NJ.
You can also access the imagery (and what will most likely be a lot more of it) via the NOAA SANDY Response Imagery Viewer. Here you can also search for a location and download the images.
Keep an eye on the galleries where both companies share this type of material.
If the images you’re looking for are not available, check the sites regularly for new material.
