Updated, Clickable Flood Map of New Orleans

Filed under: — Different River @ 5:33 pm

Here’s an amazing use of computer technology — Google Maps, combined with GeoCoder, combined with some source of flood data (they don’t say where; post a comment if you find out).
If you want to know both the maximum and current water depth of any point in New Orleans, either enter the address, or point-and-click on the map (choice of street map, satellite photo, or combination; choose a photo before or after the hurricane).

And, as Capital Freedom ebulliently points out, this is the product of a private company, not the government.
