Hurricane GeoPortal: Keep Your Eye on the Eye of the Storm
By Marcie Deffenbaugh, GIS Operations Manager
In light of very active recent hurricane seasons, it is imperative for many businesses and individuals to have quick and reliable access to key data points. Haag believes that there is no such thing as too much data as long as the data is organized, relevant, and easy to access. The Haag Hurricane Geoportal checks these boxes and much more. It gives power to the user to view multiple datasets, interact with the data, and decide which information is most valuable to them.
The Haag Hurricane Geoportal utilizes a map-based interface to provide on-demand access to several useful data sources including:
  • Real-time data for active and recent storms from the current hurricane season
  • Detailed storm data from the past three hurricane seasons with options to filter data based on storm name
  • Wind speeds & pressure at observed positions along a storm’s path
  • Direct access to official National Hurricane Center (NHC) storm reports
  • Radar and aerial imagery data for storms
  • Access to local climatological data reports
  • NEXRAD radar mosaics for current and past storms
EXPIRES 9/30/2021
