We are creating a workflow for folks to scan through NOAA Harvey aerial imagery to find flooding,...

you can't see latitude and longitude on the map as you browse around
you can't permalink to a particular location or image so that you can share that exact view, for example in a report
I think the NOAA map is probably using some kind of standard map tile display. Can someone write a map with those features that loads the same imagery sets to make it easier for people to report pollution?
Hi, @jbreen -- I'm working on a related Leaflet project if you still have any time to add in the permalink and coords plugins you found -- https://github.com/publiclab/leaflet-archive is designed to try to display a map based on an https://Archive.org image collection, using the GPS Exif tags. If you're looking for a project! Trying to widen the set of imagery we can run through this workflow.
@jasonwool - if you're interested, we would LOVE to meet you in person at the Public Lab Barnraising -- https://publiclab.org/barnraising -- Nov 3-5 in Cocodrie, Louisiana; this is our annual community event and Harvey and Irma imagery (as well as other disaster response issues) will surely be one of the big topics this year.
Cool! Thanks for the invite. I'll see what I can do.
