The number of major natural disasters on an annual basis has grown nearly fourfold since the 1970s.
Overall storm intensity is projected to increase up to 35 percent within the next decade.
Despite this, emergency managers, municipal leaders, and other key stakeholders have few tools that provide comprehensive insight into multi-modal community vulnerability and offer real-time situational awareness.
Geospiza recognized this need and capitalized upon the exponentially increasing availability of data by creating transformative emergency management tools that:
· Enhance efficiency and effectiveness with data-driven, evidence-based solutions
· Drive action with forward-leaning decision support
· Aid emergency managers through the entire emergency management cycle, providing value on both clear and stormy days
