Many GIC members will add our imagery to their online maps and GIS systems using a feed to add a layer. This provides maximum flexibility of presentation, layout and utility. But there are cases where you want to get an interactive map on your website quickly, especially at times of crisis such as hurricane aftermath.  Here, a simple embed can go a long way. This technique can also be used by ANYONE outside of the GIC to quickly get a map on their website or blog. The embedded map features address search, layer control and the amazing before/after slider.

Here are the steps to have a map on your website in 2 minutes.

Start by getting the map set the way you want it to appear on your site. Visit our public mapping site then pan and zoom to set the initial map view you want to embed. 

Once your map is set, click the share button (highlighted below) to display the sharing options. 

Copy the embed code and paste it into your website. You can adjust the size of the map to fit your layout.

that’s it! you have a simple but feature rich map on your website in under two minutes. As always, reach out to support@geointel.org with any questions.

In the wake of Hurricane Michael, weather conditions have been optimal for flying and imagery collection. We are on schedule to deliver all of the planned Areas of Interest over the next couple of days.

At this time we have surplus capacity and the ability to direct cameras to additional areas for immediate collection. If you are a GIC member with need for an AOI not already in process, please reach out immediately to let us know. Email us at support@geointel.org with your request.

The Geospatial Intelligence Center crews were able to capture the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Michael on Mexico Beach, Florida, one of the hardest hit areas. This once beautiful beach town has been completely devastated after taking a direct hit from Hurricane Michael. Wide swaths of new high-resolution imagery have been added to our GIC web portal map. You can view the before/after imagery by clicking the link below: 


The large aerial imagery coverage offers a striking comparison of the beach town showing the effects of Hurricane Michael. Images show entire blocks of homes and communities that now remain as piles of rubble, a truly heart-wrenching sight to see.

The GIC will continue to add imagery with the aim of providing maximum coverage of impacted areas that have been hit by Hurricane Michael. This data is used by insurers, government agencies and emergency responders to assist in the critical disaster relief efforts.

The target areas of interest (AOIs) for imagery coverage of Hurricane Michael are listed out below: 

Areas collected 10/12/18: (Florida) Pensacola, Navarre, Fort Walton Beach, Valparaiso, Santa Rosa Beach, Panama City, Lynn Haven, Callaway, Port St. Joe, Apalachicola, Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Sopchoppy, Panacea, Steinhatchee, Suwannee, Cedar Key, and more.

Planned area collection for 10/13/18: (Florida) Tallahassee, Marianna, Southport, Youngstown, Wewahitchka, Blountstown, Chipley, Bonifay, Defuniak Springs, Bainbridge, Cairo, Colquitt, Thomasville. (Georgia) Albany, Macon. (Alabama) Dothan.

Collections are ongoing and new data continues to populate the GIC web map portal which now includes data from the most efficient of our camera systems, the Condor. This sensor allows for rapid wide area mapping at high altitudes, swaths that are miles wide, allowing the GIC to provide members with post-disaster imagery in record time following an event.

The Geospatial Intelligence Center’s response will extend through the weekend and is planned to be ongoing into the coming week. 

“The Geospatial Intelligence Center has previously mapped the areas hardest hit by previous hurricanes and disasters and those views are also available. This effort is part of the massive data collection and processing system spearheaded by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), whose member companies write almost 80 percent of all property/casualty insurance and over 94 percent of all auto insurance in the country.”
