Update: Help FEMA Categorize Sandy Images: Crowdsourced Damage Assessment

A thank you and request for more image reviewers from FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer Mike Hall.

---- original post 11/1/12 ----

FEMA, via the had the Civil Air Patrol, take aerial imagery in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts on Oct 31 2012. It is looking for help from volunteers to categorize images from Hurricane Sandy. The work is basically deciding if buildings have light, moderate or heavy damage. The code behind the tools, MapMill, is open source.
