Damaged structures and burned swaths of forest are quickly and easily discernible when viewing superimposed false color imagery in the Google Earth viewer. Healthy vegetation has a false red color whereas the charred and scorched areas are burnt and black. The 0.5 meter WorldView-2 imagery provides a level of detail which yields vital information for disaster relief efforts. DigitalGlobe’s constellation of satellites offers first responders a chance to stay informed in rapidly evolving situations.
