We are excited to announce the open source release of the Crisis Mapping Toolkit under the Apache 2.0 license! The software is available on github.
The Crisis Mapping Toolkit currently contains:
- Multiple flood mapping algorithms for the MODIS satellite;
- Flood mapping algorithms for Synthetic Aperture Radar data, specifically histogram thresholding and active contour;
- An algorithm to estimate lake surface areas from Landsat images;
- And a number of helpful general utilities for users of Google Earth Engine.
The Crisis Mapping Toolkit is under active development, and will continue to expand to include additional algorithms and crises.
