BNOB plan maps

Among the more impressive maps on view recently were the following.

The first is a map that appeared in the Bring New Orleans Back Urban Planning Committee report (35 MB PowerPoint file) which really delivers a powerful message by showing the extent of flooding in New Orleans overlaid on a satellite image of Washington, D.C.:

The other map of interest is a Times-Picayune composite of the different layers representing development areas in the BNOB Urban Planning Committee report:

The B-NOBs have a good graphics person. I would like to find the source for the overlay. An image with a stronger impact would be the flood area overlaid on a satalite image of Manhattan and "ground zero". How much $ aid went to restore that relatively tiny, not to mention self sufficient footprint of destruction?

Good point - I have the flood maps, and Manhattan satellite imagery. I'll work on that.
