Picking Up the Pieces: The Role of GIS in Post-Hurricane Disaster Response and Recovery as published on

In 2004, Martin County, Fla., endured one of the most devastating stormseasons in recorded history, with two major hurricanes (Frances and Jeanne) making landfall in the county within a three-week period.  NorthStar Geomatics assisted Martin County in obtaining more than $17 million in cost reimbursement for debris removal.  NorthStar’s documentation would later become critical in successfully resolving an issue involving a denial from FEMA for $3.45million of this cost reimbursement.
