Orlando-Based Geocove to Provide GIS Technology to Disaster Officials in Three Florida Counties PDF Print E-mail
Written by Geocove, Inc.

ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 17, 2012)--- Geocove, Inc., the Orlando firm whose ARM-360® GIS system for disaster relief officials helped Osceola County, Kissimmee and St. Cloud win the prestigious Florida Local Government Information Systems Assn. (FLGISA) 2012 Technology Achievement Award recently, has earned contracts to provide ARM360® GIS systems to three Florida counties and one in North Carolina.

Karyn Tareen, president and chief executive officer of Geocove, Inc., said the ARM360® system allows county disaster officials to provide accurate and comprehensive disaster assessments within hours of a cataclysmic event such as a hurricane, tornado or firestorm.

Designed by Geocove engineers, ARM360® is a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based application that allows field assessors from each municipality to report real-time findings to a centralized Emergency Operating Center (EOC).

“ARM360® enables local and remote decision makers to allocate resources quickly and efficiently,” Tareen explained.

Within the past 90 days Sarasota, Highlands and Gulf counties in Florida have deployed Geocove’s ARM360® system, as has Onslow County, North Carolina.

“Most U.S. municipalities have invested in GIS systems to identify and inventory their assets,” Tareen said.

“Geocove’s ARM360® system helps them leverage their GIS investment so that digital maps rich in locally maintained data are instantly available to disaster assessors in the field on their mobile computers,” she said.

“With a couple of clicks, they can report the percentage of damage they observe for buildings and properties,” she said.

“Call centers use the same maps and data to log caller-reported damage and to provide callers with disaster information such as shelter locations, points of distribution, outages, road blocks, and so on,” she said.

Earlier this year Geocove partnered with Florida’s Lee County to develop a sophisticated GIS-based disaster management system that won the 2012 Florida Governor’s Hurricane Conference Public Information Award.

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