Question: Can someone make a map to display NOAA Harvey imagery with coordinates and permalink?

We are creating a workflow for folks to scan through NOAA Harvey aerial imagery to find flooding, flaring, and other pollution incidents at industrial sites:

The problem is that:

  1. you can't see latitude and longitude on the map as you browse around
  2. you can't permalink to a particular location or image so that you can share that exact view, for example in a report

I think the NOAA map is probably using some kind of standard map tile display. Can someone write a map with those features that loads the same imagery sets to make it easier for people to report pollution?

Thank you!!!

Adding coordinates to a Mapbox GL map is pretty straight forward.

Not sure that Mapbox GL supports permalinks, but then again I might be misunderstanding this exchange.

I did find a permalink solution for Leaflet, but I think you'd have to do something like this which probably defeats the whole purpose of Mapbox GL.

Getting the NOAA data in there is a step beyond me.

If somebody wants to point me to a repo for this map, I'll add the coordinates code.

There's a good thread going on Twitter on this!

hey guys,

I work on the NOAA pages. I just added permalinks and mouseover lat/lon coords to both the Hurricane Harvey and Irma imagery pages. The changes should be live tomorrow morning.
