Post-Earthquake Imagery from Nepal
Esri has released a map which allows you to compare pre- and post-earthquake imagery from Nepal. The post-earthquake imagery has been provided by Airbus Defense and Space.
The Nepal Earthquake Swipe Map includes some links in the sidebar to zoom to some of the important areas in Kathmandu, including Dharahara Tower, Kathmandu Durbar Square and the Garden of Dreams. You can also explore the imagery yourself. Just panning the map around you can't help but notice all the parks filled with temporary shelters.
If you want to help the disaster response teams on the ground by improving the map of Nepal you can join thousands of other mapping volunteers, organized by the Humanitarian Open Street Map Team (HOT).
