Via a teenager who attended the Harvey Response Open Call, I wanted to repost this question as it's a really good one.

Remote mapping support through Open Street Map (OSM) has my vote. Mapping buildings and roads after a disaster supports first responders on the ground who may or may not be from the affected area. And first responders/locals in an affected area often lose their bearings on what was there due to the trauma experienced after the disaster.

Here's a good one:

Help find and identify polluted sites so they get reported by Gulf Restoration Network and @eustatic!

@wward1400 -- any way to connect up these efforts?

@sarasage -- we're looking to get lots of people plugged into this workflow now -- if Walter's interested!
