Street-Level Tracking is Key for Public Servant

by Emily Belden        February 17, 2010  |  12:28 pm  |  Category: Testimonials

"As a public servant in Morrison County I'm concerned that we provide our residents with the best information possible to enable them to adequately prepare in a timely fashion for what might be coming - whether it is flood, winter storms, severe thunder/lightning storms, tornados or whatever.  Our Public Safety and Public Works personnel need to be able to respond rapidly and strategically to changing conditions as well, and weather related events can play a big part in their ability to do so.

"One of our recent areas of focus is bringing the weather down to street and parcel level.  This gives us the ability to identify specific locations where there might be high concentrations of people in the path of a system, giving law enforcement and other agencies the ability to provide a more advanced notice than might otherwise be given - possibly saving lives.  Being able to add our own layers of data as an overlay to Weather Defender could potentially help us in this regard."

Acknowledging Disaster

by Emily Belden        January 25, 2010  |  12:14 pm  |  Category: Latest News

When we at SWIFT Weather equipped our latest version of Weather Defender 1.1 with the ability to track natural disasters on a global scale, we had no idea the kind of devastation that would happen just a few months later. As our customers already know, the Ranger Weather Map in Weather Defender 1.1 includes an Earthquakes tracking layer, as shown here:

Unfortunately, we have no way to predict where earthquakes will strike next. All we can do is offer our support after the fact to those who need it most. That is why we have contributed to the American Red Cross Haiti Reflief Fund, and we would encourage anyone who is able to contribute what they can:
