Abstract
    By October of 2005, work on post-hurricane mapping projects for five events in the U.S. was in process by Fugro Pelagos personnel. These included: Dennis along the Florida Panhandle; Katrina along Florida and several locations in Louisiana; Ophelia and Tammy along most of the East Coast; and Rita in southwestern Louisiana. Post-hurricane mapping work for Wilma has taken place in 2006. This paper discusses each hurricane and the technical requirements to achieve the required information. Each operation is discussed individually with the methodology and time-requirements to successfully conduct the field operations.
