GIS News - Public Safety and Emergency Response

ORLANDO, Fla.  (Oct. 6, 2011)--- Geocove, Inc., the Orlando firm that provides proprietary technology to help states, counties and municipalities utilize GIS data to inventory and assess damages in the event of storms of other natural disasters, is earning nationwide attention for its efforts to help authorities in Tuscaloosa, Ala. and Joplin, Mo. assess massive local tornado damage recently.

Karyn Tareen, president and chief executive officer at Geocove, Inc., said ESRI, the world’s leading provider of GIS software for government agencies, featured Geocove’s work in two recent articles published in technical newsletters whose subscribers include most U.S. state and federal GIS and disaster management agencies.

ESRI has called on Geocove to assist several disaster operations most notably Tuscaloosa, Ala. and Joplin, Mo.

ESRI called on Geocove to assist in disaster management efforts because Geocove’s ARM360 software suite is the only field-tested GIS-based damage assessment tool available to disaster management agencies today,” Tareen said.

Tareen said the nationwide publicity means a huge boost for Geocove. ESRI’s Geocove articles are already available online and printed versions of the newsletters---Government Matters for state and local government agencies and Federal GIS Connections for U.S. government agencies---are due out later this month.

“ESRI newsletters are the most important technical updates for hundreds of U.S., state and local GIS users and disaster management agencies,” Tareen said.

“In our business, especially for Geocove’s ARM360 damage assessment software suite, ESRI reaches the core market with almost 100 percent coverage,” she said.

Geocove is a member of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program in the Central Florida Research Park in East Orlando.
