Hurricane Harvey brought more than 50 inches of rain in a single week to a regional that normal receives 45 inches of rainfall in a year. This amount of rainfall in such a short period of time brought widespread flooding and destruction of property throughout the Houston-Galveston region. However, flooding and excessive rainfall from natural disasters also create impacts to eco-systems that provide benefits to the region both recreationally and in mitigating the effects of natural rainfall events. This application can be used to compare pre and post Hurricane Harvey true color and color infrared imagery. Pre-Harvey imagery is circa 2016 courtesy of TNRIS NAIP program and is 1 Meter resolution. Post-Harvey imagery was flown by the Houston-Galveston Area Council from 8/30/2017-9/8/2017 and is 1 Foot resolution.
