Esri has donated and coordinated a considerable amount of software, resources and volunteers to the recovery efforts by state and local governments and the Red Cross in response to the devastation by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the tsunami in Asia and other natural disasters.  Most recently, Esri has implemented Web-based mapping applications to illustrate the effects of earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, as well as the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. These applications display important data layers as well as relevant multimedia content such as videos, photos, and news reports.
