- At 8:46 A.M. Eastern Time, observe a moment of silence in memory of those who lost their lives that day or during ensuing events like the War on Terror, and
- Fly the U.S. flag at 1/2 mast.
Comment: A couple of thoughts about this day from a geospatial perspective:
First, in the days after the 10th anniversary of 9/11, this author reviewed the available map and imagery collections that had been mentioned in various remembrance publications. Two were thought worthwhile to pass along. They were:
- GIS Community: A Response to Terrorist Attack - A master listing assembled by Directions Magazine.
- Witness and Response - A collection of LiDAR, thermal imagery and aerial imagery assembled by the Library of Congress.
A review of options offered this year, adds a third to the list:
- Maps Relating to September 11, 2001 and Later Events - A collection of event related maps as referenced by the Perry-Castañeda Library, the University of Texas at Austin.
Yes, to be certain, 9/11 changed the world in many ways....
