THE VISUAL DROUGHT ATLAS - Submit a photo this Memorial Day Weekend

The Visual Drought Atlas compares landscapes over time, showing what different places across the country look like in dry, wet and normal years. To do that, the Atlas utilizes snapshots of current conditions submitted by the public. No matter the conditions, your input helps. For consistency, we especially encourage submissions over four holidays—Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day—when people may have more time to visit their favorite places. But photo submissions are welcome any time of year. It is OK if photos include wildlife or interesting landscape features, but no people, please. Filling out the Visual Drought Atlas form and submitting a few photos seasonally takes a few minutes, and greatly informs the Atlas.

Submit photos using this form:
