Here we have an interesting recovery map from NOLA.com.

NOLA is a popular nickname for the City of New Orleans. So, one can imagine the wealth of knowledge available at a site calling itself NOLA.com. Not only did NOLA serve as source material for our research (the compiled building permits list 09/06-12/08), they are the online manifestation of the New Orleans newspaper The Times-Picayune and maintain a rather large library of graphics used for their past coverage of the Hurricane Katrina disaster event. Below is an interactive look into recovery up to June 2006 in five New Orleans neighborhoods: Eastern New Orleans, Gentilly, Lakeview, Broadmoor and the Lower 9th Ward.
