About This Image
This one-foot resolution, digital aerial image of Joplin, Missouri, was collected May 24, 2011 at approximately 9:30 a.m. The image shows the remains of Joplin High School, located at 21st and Indiana, just two days after a Level 5 tornado touched down on May 22, 2011 and destroyed most of the town. The image was collected by digital imaging aircraft owned by M.J. Harden (www.mjharden.com), a GeoEye Company, based in Mission, Kansas. MJ Harden owns and operates mapping aircraft with digital mapping cameras and flew an emergency mission for Missouri state officials to provide insight on relief efforts and emergency response, and to assess and measure damage to buildings, facilities, and other structures.
