Current satelite pics of New Orleans

http://ngs.woc.noaa.gov/katrina/KATRINA0000.HTM
56k might beware, the pics are huge.

click on a box to zoom, click on another box to get an actual pic. appears you can enlarge at least once to show pretty high detail.

i manged to find my old dorms at UNO, looks to be under a couple of feet of water, but most of campus looks dry and the trees are still standing. The campus used to be a Navy base, so i'm guessing the levy system had been beefed up sometime in the past. The dry side of campus is the side facing the lake, the wet side appears to have water encroaching form the city (south)

Updated satellite scans of the area have been up on google maps for a while.
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=New+Or...5289&t=e&hl=en

But to give you credit, your resolution's about twice that of google maps.

that link shows pre-Katrina photos, at least of the UNO campus, it's nice for the compare/contrast though.

I'm pretty sure this is post katrina:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=New+Or...0956&t=e&hl=en

Unless the superdome roof looked like that before the storm.

Nice work that link shows really well what parts of the city are still under water and what parts appear to be relatively dry. thanks

According to an earlier article on Slashdot, the pictures on the NOAA site are aerial photos, not satellite.

At first, when I was looking at the google maps photos, I didn't think anything was different. Then I switched back to the regular photos and compared. It was impressive and humbling. Looking at that, it hardly seems like a good idea to rebuild the entire city.
