GIS data, WMS and Online Map Resources - maps, data, apps related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill PDF Print E-mail

The kind folks at the State of Arkansas GIS and the USDA have shared with us a vast collection of links to GIS data products, WMS servers, raster and vector data collections and State emergency response resources that are useful for emergency responders working on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and efforts along the US Gulf Coast.

From the US Coast Guard (Twitter @USCG) Information on volunteering to assist the Deepwater Horizon clean-up (MS Word DOC) this via Twitter


 We realize that many people want to help with the response effort.  We already have requests from thousands of people willing to volunteer to clean up the beaches now and if and when the oil comes to shore.  To help organize volunteers we established a phone line for them to call:  866-448-5816. 
 
 The U.S. Coast Guard leads the volunteer effort if shoreline cleanup is needed.  Shoreline cleanup volunteers must have training including hazardous materials training required by OSHA and EPA.  Only volunteers who have been trained and provide appropriate certification are allowed to assist. 
 
 Wildlife
 To address potential wildlife impacts, BP has contracted with Tri-State Bird and Rescue.  Tri-State works with trained and certified volunteers to help recover and clean impacted wildlife.  A toll-free number 800-557-1401 has been established to report oiled or injured wildlife.  People are urged not to attempt to help injured or oiled animals, but to report any sightings via the toll-free number. 
 
 Claims
 A claims number also has been established:  1-800-440-0858

A fine resource made available from ESRI that enables users to see the latest maps, web services, and applications devoted to monitoring and tracking the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The content is being published by ESRI and other organizations to support response and mitigation activities. It seemed for days (although it felt like weeks)  its been tough (or near impossible)  to locate anything at all related to the situation, except for a few satellite images showing the oil spill location - trust ESRI to grab the reigns and take it upon themselves to put together a useful resource of information. KUDOS!

Users and emergency responders working in the area are invited to contact the team in order to join the group and share their related apps, services, data and resources. See the ArcGIS Online (BETA) ESRI Gulf Oil Spill Response

To date several interesting web services have been published including:

  • Gulf coast oil spill plume showing approx trajectory
  • Environmental Sensitivity map
  • Electronic navigational charts
