    Within a web browser, datasphere conveniently color-coded icons helps users focus on sites on the map as well as concerning data within charts and tables.

  • Data archive fuels deeper analyses

    Data archive fuels deeper analyses

    View and analyze past monitoring data using the same tools available in forecast and real-time mode.

    Also review past alarming events for continuous improvements to O&M and emergency planning.

  • Affordable big data IT infrastructure

    Affordable big data IT infrastructure

    We absorb high IT infrastructure costs and use our own innovations to process a wide variety of gridded observation and forecast datasets, e.g. data products generated by NOAA and Environment and Climate Change Canada, the North American Ensemble Forecast Suite (NAEFS), and make it available at a fraction of the resources needed by public agencies to establish & maintain.

    Our array data storage and associated web services give organizations of all sizes the 21st Century tools to develop more reliable local forecasts. By correlating measured weather & climate data, we generate data products that power localized forecast tools and forecast-informed operations.

    With increasing access to and cases for using gridded data or remote sensing imagery, we help our customers put high accuracy, precise and hyperlocal information into action.
