The purpose of this project was to support the enhanced search, access, and visualization capability for disaster maps and other contributed products on the public USGS Hazards Data Distribution System (HDDS) (U.S. Geological Survey, 2015). These products are often provided to USGS by collaborators for sharing across the response community during the course of an emergency event response; however, in the past, they were not easy for users to discover or access. This project involved the design, testing, and delivery of a new capability for HDDS to ingest, catalog, and display informational or value-added products when provided in a variety of formats. As a result of this work, the user community will be able to interactively search, [...]
