Post-tsunami damage in Tamil Nadu, south India. The agency used GPS and Google Earth to help people after the 2006 tsunami in south east Asia. Lizzie Babister said, “A lot of people’s land records had been washed away. We used Google Earth to take an aerial photo, and used mapping software to produce a map from this. We then worked with the community to determine how the land was divided up before the tsunami, helping them to find the site of their home.”
