Galveston Island Post Hurricane Ike Imagery

For those of you interested in accessing data on Galveston Isl, post Hurricane Ike, NOAA has made available a vast collection of data including loads of imagery. See or the homepage at Data are 50 cm resolution imagery, SHP file downloads and World files with metadata are available. These are some of the best data I've come into where users can identify damaged properties for a pre-visit analysis. For some simply amazing imagery of Ike captured from the International Space Station see this page from NASA.
