In conjunction with the Humanitarian Information Unit, U.S. Department of State, the KARS program is developing a Haiti Earthquake Disaster Portal and data sets to aid emergency responders and provide data to the public. The portal takes advantage of the Cyberinfrastructure built at KARS and will be updated as new data becomes available.

Several data sets are available that can be used with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software and with Google Earth.
