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."

How easy is Weather Defender to use?

by Rory Groves        February 15, 2010  |  11:26 am  |  Category: Latest News

One of the most common compliments we receive about Weather Defender is how easy it is to use. Just how easy is it? Take a look at this weather forecast put together by one of our younger clients:

Kasey Cornette, age 10, writes:

"These colors show the amounts of snow i expect from the storm we are now experiencing which will not be over until Tuesday Feb 16th."

I asked Kasey how he created this forecast and he replied:

"I start with a blank Weather Defender page. I go to map,and I click on screenshot and save it to desktop. Then open,and left click on windows paint. I use a variety of modles to get snowfall averages, and coler the map accordingly."

Well done, Kasey!
