  • Does anyone know someone at Archive.org who can enable CORS for images of Harvey pollution?
    I'm trying to set up a workflow for reporters of damaged industrial sites that may be polluting after Harvey and other storms and disasters. Currently people often upload large batches of files to Flickr or Google Drive, but Archive.org is a more sustainable place with a better API. But I'm also trying to get aerial photos of affected sites (like the flooded oil and gas facilities shown below) to...

  • Is it possible to discern jagged from rounded particles using a DIY microscope?
    In the particulate matter project (see https://publiclab.org/wiki/pm), we're interested in discerning round, droplet-based particles (i.e. particles that form from condensation nuclei, known as "secondary particles") from jagged and crystalline particles (i.e. particles made from mechanical crushing or combustion debris, known as "primary particles"). The reason we are interested in this is that t...

  • Can NASA VIIRS data used for disaster maps?
    Looking at maps from the Suomi satellite of fires in the Western US, destruction of Rohingya villages- I wondered, how can this data be used after disasters like Harvey, Irma, Maria, Mexican earthquakes to help document damage and help communities recover? For example, the burning organic peroxides of Arkema should show up well, and help the neighborhood document what really happened. A chronolog...
