Leveraging Open-Source Geospatial Services for Real-Time Emergency Management Applications

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Open-source geo software is commonly used to move massive spatio-temporal data from sensor to end user applications with low latency.  The importance of this is exemplified in emergency management/response applications, such as hurricane tracking and modeling, real-time flood, and wildfire applications. The next step for government emergency managers is to know where to find training and support for these open-source geo software applications in order to enhance their abilities to assess and model disaster risk in real-time.


Join us for a complimentary webinar where customer users Overwatch Imaging and Sea Island Software will demonstrate different applications utilizing open-source geo service (GeoServer). Hear as Overwatch Imaging reviews a summary of a recent wildfire intelligence mission to Portugal with topics including light fixed wing aircraft integration, multi-spectral remote sensing, and real-time data analysis. Learn as Sea Island Software demonstrates HURREVAC's tools for local analysis of wind, storm surge, and inland flooding threats.


Specifically, attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • What forecast products to expect from the National Hurricane Center for the start of the Atlantic basin hurricane season on June 1st
  • How Hurricane Ian was tracked during the lead up to landfalls in Southwest Florida and the Carolinas in Sept/Oct 2022
