Hazard Mitigation Geospatial Project


In December 2009 GOHSEP was awarded a $9.5 million grant from FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. The approved GOHSEP application consisted of two primary objectives: 1) the collection of 6 inch high resolution imagery for the entire state; and 2) collection of critical infrastructure for all 64 parishes. Due to budget savings realized during the initial 2010 6 inch flight of the state, additional imagery consisting of 4 inch resolution for all cities in the state with a population of at least 10,000 and 3 inch resolution for the metropolitan areas of New Orleans and Baton Rouge was also captured in 2014. This portal serves as a secured repository of all the latest imagery and critical infrastructure data collected as part of the FEMA Hazard Mitigation grant.
