Quite a few of us spent three years mapping out the flows of imagery at Camp Roberts, both as we built the Imagery to the Crowd/MapGive process and the MapMill process with the Civil Air Patrol. Starting in Nov 2009, OpenAerialMap also surfaced the issue of needing a place to put all these pixels, including UAV imagery.
GFDRR also plays a key role here, both through Keiko's PDNA work and the use of GeoNodes to store geospatial data. NGA is a quiet but critical player in damage assessment.
About 20 of us held a side meeting at SatSummit last month to work out some current issues.
What is your audience and how will this new resource be used?

>> Dear CrisisMappers,
>> I'm doing research on the use of satellite imagery for crisis mapping. As part of this research, I'm looking to create a conceptual map of the landscape (who is currently doing what and how) around the use of satellite imagery for disaster management (all phases of the disaster cycle).
>> I'm thus very keen to speak with relevant experts in this space including folks who analyze said imagery and end-users who use the resulting analysis. So if this is your area of expertise, then I'd be very grateful for your guidance-- could you kindly send me an email off list?
