Toward the end of last month it was announced TerraGo Technologies had successfully delivered to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) a map book system supporting the Department's Wide Area Recovery and Resiliency Program (WARPP). Focusing primarily on response and recovery efforts stemming from a Chemical, Biological, or Radiological (CBR) event, WARRP has requirements that are not considered by most day-to-day Emergency Services Sector operations. Specifically, the geospatial information flow must be able to keep up with a rapidly changing environment, and do so across a large geographic area spanning many jurisdictional boundaries. Against that backdrop, the TerraGo product delivered to DHS - Dynamic Map Book Composer - prints map books on-demand with layers updated on a near real-time basis. To learn more, use the link below:

Comment: In concept, a great product. But once again, the "special value" of this product as envisioned is nearly entirely dependent on the delivery of diverse, numerous, real-time data flows. What, EXACTLY, is the plan to make that happen? Go here for a suggestion.
