How this all came about...
• Magnitude 7.0 hits Haiti at
4:53PM on January 12th, 2010
• Massive displacement of people
• Massive destruction to buildings
and infrastructure
• In response, World Bank wants
to fund collection of open
access, high-resolution aerial
imagery of affected area

RIT WASP imaging platform
•  Wildfire Airborne Sensor Program
•  Designed and built in-house originally
for fire detection and mapping
•  Captures high-resolution visible
imagery along with 3 bands of infrared
imagery
•  At ~2000 ft
•  IR GSD = 2.5 m
•  VIS GSD = 0.13 m
•  All imagery is orthorectified on the fly
to 4m RMS
•  GPS and aircraft positioning recorded
via IMU (inertial motion unit)

Response Timeline
•  January 12th: Earthquake hits
•  January 13th: RIT contacts IPLER partner ImageCat to discuss potential response
•  January 15th: ImageCat obtains funding commitment from World Bank for highresolution imagery and LiDAR collection
•  January 14th-19th: RIT puts wheels in motion with IPLER partner Kucera
International to deploy RIT WASP and LiDAR sensor to Haiti

IMU
•  Base Logistics - Puerto Rico & refuel Dominican Republic for daily Haiti
deployment
•  Data transfer - from University of Puerto Rico to RIT on daily basis
•  Data Processing - RIT team to work 24/7 once data stream in
•  Data release - Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, USGS, ERDAS, UN-SPIDER, UB
