A GIS based architecture for integrating, disseminating, and displaying weather data
The Emergency Management Hurricane Tracker (EMHURR) is an experimental NWS application that utilizes spatial database technology to fuse disparate NWS datasets into a common GIS ready format. EMHURR was developed to assist emergency management personnel with planning, and decision-making tasks required during the onset of a hurricane or tropical storm. In the following paper the architecture, data, and interface of EMHURR will be explored along with future plans, and lessons learned.
