HurricaneMapping data also integrates with these weather tracking and risk assessment applications.

Visual Command Center

Visual Command Center helps organizations take command of risk by providing a real-time, common operating picture of a company's assets, personnel, supply chain and operations in relation to potential threats to those assets. It unites information on global sources of risk, like weather, terrorism, and natural disasters, with data from an organization's internal data stores and physical security systems on an interactive map and timeline. When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert and provides tools to assess whether the risk is a threat and take immediate action to minimize the impact.
