Delta State Releases Prototype U.S. National Grid Interface for the Irene Response

The USNG National Implementation Center (TUNIC) at Delta State University has just released a prototype U.S. National Grid (USNG) viewer and map download interface for the Hurricane Irene response.  Look for it here.  Places where thin lined black boxes appear, a USNG image based map is available for download.

Comment: Oddly, this approach looks very familiar.  Indeed, it was first pioneered by the EPC in early 2009 for the Red River Valley floods by using the Minnesota created open source software GeoMOOSE.  Later, the approach was also adapted for use in the Minnesota Structures Collaborative

I'm not saying, I'm just saying.
