Two days after its acquisition, aerial imagery of Missouri’s Meramec River flooding is now available online. Using their browser, viewers can zoom in and pan (left-right, up-down) to see the severity and extensiveness of the devastation. This online viewing tool was developed by Surdex Corporation, which acquired and processed the imagery.
Because of the ongoing storms and clouds, aircraft had to fly the area twice in order to capture the area largely free of clouds and cloud shadows. After the imagery was acquired, technicians at Surdex spliced together the better images from both flights to achieve this final, clear imagery.
