More than 100 federal, state and local emergency response and government agencies, including National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service (NWS), rely on Earth Networks weather information for mission-critical decisions when managing risks and aiding in protecting the public. For emergency managers and public safety officials, weather is of critical importance when implementing emergency response and recovery efforts during a severe weather event, or managing a chemical, biological or radiological event that has put a community at risk.
The integration of real-time weather data with pinpoint accuracy into operational platforms is necessary for government agencies to create a common operating picture used in weather-related decision-making. Earth Networks is the leader in providing governmental agencies with the most precise live weather conditions, the most relevant weather reports and the earliest weather warnings to safeguard lives and property. Earth Networks creates customized solutions for agencies where real-time weather data is critical when managing weather-related events or man-made disasters.
Since 2002, Earth Networks has been a partner with the NOAA to aid in Homeland Security efforts helping emergency managers in their decision-making processes. In addition, Earth Networks was selected as the 2007 ESRI New Business Partner of the Year for weather data integration that is imperative in GIS decision platforms.
