Your Tax Dollars Actually Working For You
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
, one of the really secret intelligence outfits, set up this site to provide before and after photography of the area impacted by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
They are also working with governments in the area struck by the earthquake, so that aid can be distributed efficiently.
These are some really high quality photographs that taxpayers spend a lot of money on and don't even know they exist. I get a feeling that the Agency is doing this to show Congress that they are useful and should be funded.
The data is capable of some really amazing tricks if you have the computing power and software.
