Open Data Site Established for Hurricane Harvey

An open data site has been set up to house data from authoritative sources relating to Hurricane Harvey.  The site was launched by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a central point of reliable data that can be used by local, state, Federal, tribal, private sector, and community partners.

GIS data, imagery, and other data sets are organized by category including: Emergency Services, Hazard & Incident Data, Community Resources, Imagery, and Base & Population Data.  Data is available for download in CSV, KML, and Shapefile formats.
