Map-based tools track drought impacts:

  • The Drought Impact Reporter Dashboard
  • Condition Monitoring Observer Reports (CMOR)
  • The Visual Drought Atlas
  • The Media Drought Index
  • Drought Tweets
  • CoCoRaHS condition monitoring reports

These resources are regularly updated sources of information on drought impacts or on other environmental conditions that may be related to drought.

State agencies, non-governmental organizations and others may conduct post-drought assessments to better understand how drought affected agriculture, health, food security, energy, communities and other areas of interest, and to document responses and outcomes.
