The 2005 Hurricane Imagery add-on is a re-write of the orignal Katrina Imagery Add-On, it now shows imagery for several 2005 hurricanes..

This imagery is pulled together and processed to help property owners, rescuers, government officials, and others get the information they need in an easy to use format.

Current Hurricane Imagery

  • Katrina - US Army Core of Engineers (0.72' per pixel resolution) and NOAA aerial imagery (1.5' per pixel resolution).
  • Ophelia - NOAA aerial imagery.


  • Using the self installing exe -
    • Double click '2005_Hurricane_Imagery.exe' and follow the on-screen prompts.
    • When the installer has completed you are ready to run World Wind, once World Wind has loaded unselect 'NLT Landsat7 (Visible Color)' in the toolbar by clicking on it, the little black arrow above it should disappear.
    • Then click on 'Layer Manager' located on the far left of your toolbar, the Layer Manager menu will appear, tick '2005 Hurricane Season Images', and zoom in to view the affected areas.
    • To choose between the different photography available in this add-on click the small white arrow next to '2005 Hurricane Season Images' in the Layer Manager, a list of different views will appear, repeat the process to choose the specific hurricane you wish to view, then click in the center of any circle to select which view you want.
    • You may click the following link to view the Louisiana SuperDome in World Wind (after selecting 'Hurricane Katrina Imagery - New Orleans and Mississippi' in the Layer Manager') - worldwind://goto/lat=29.95&lon=-90.08&altitude=800
