Roanoke, VA May 1, 2012: Sea Island Software, developers of the Hurricane Evacuation Program (HURREVAC) utilized by government emergency managers around the world, has chosen SiteVision, Inc., to enhance and streamline its website user registration and access features. SiteVision developed the original web portal system for the software company, and has partnered in upgrades as emerging technologies have evolved.
Sea Island Software’s HURREVAC program (www.hurricanemapping.com) is a highly-regarded storm tracking and decision assistance software program. The mapping site offers real-time tracking of storms worldwide using official forecast data. From its origins in 1988, HURREVAC has grown into a feature-rich program currently used by more than 6,000 government emergency managers worldwide. The website is a comprehensive storm tracking service for Google Earth and ESRI’s ArcGIS. HurricaneMapping.com’s datafeeds are designed to be both an extended service to existing customers in the public sectors as well as a stand-alone service to new private-sector customers. The data feeds are a subscription-based service that delivers live hurricane, tropical storm, and typhoon tracking data quickly and efficiently to the desktop. The firm also offers various training, exercise services, risk profiles and custom programming related to hurricane management information. SiteVision was originally responsible for developing all of the backend capabilities, as well as a full fail-over redundant capability for 24-7 emergency access.
In the new project, SiteVision will provide alternative user processes for streamlining the way HRVC registers HURREVAC users and grants access to the program. New registration features and security measures, as well as a comprehensive administration section will be designed to enhance and automate the expedient flow of information to and from the users.
