For those of you interested in accessing data on Galveston Isl, post Hurricane Ike, NOAA has made available a vast collection of data including loads of imagery. See http://ngs.woc.noaa.gov/ike/IKE0000.HTM or the homepage at http://ngs.woc.noaa.gov/ike/. Data are 50 cm resolution imagery, SHP file downloads and World files with metadata are available. These are some of the best data I’ve come into where users can identify damaged properties for a pre-visit analysis. For some simply amazing imagery of Ike captured from the International Space Station see this page from NASA.

So, it was a beautiful fall day here in Northern Colorado… what to do??? No, not go to the CSU game, although that would have been cool! Instead, I loaded up the family and we headed on up to Rocky Mountain National Park (Estes Park) to catch some Elk Bugling and pay a visit to the Stanley Hotel (ya, the place where the Shining was filmed)… I was sick as crap but still, what a great day! FYI, if you’re ever in the area be sure to take in Estes Park and if you’re really into learning more about elk, visit the RMEF. For topos and GIS information on the area see Larimer County GIS.
