LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 1, 2010 –The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Louisville District contracted Spatial Data Integrations, Inc. (SDI) to develop a custom Emergency Management-centric ESRI ArcGIS Server based website.
The Louisville Common Operational Picture (LCOP) transforms the way USACE manages and responds to emergencies by allowing all staff members to visualize and obtain information from hundreds of accessible data layers within the USACE and publically available websites. This one-stop location allows responders to quickly obtain the information needed to make accurate and timely decisions based upon the most current real-time weather radar, warnings, National Weather Service (NWS) stream and river gages.
LCOP was built using ESRI’s ArcGIS Server 9.3 and the FLEX API. “As soon as I saw the FLEX API for the first time at the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, I knew that this technology is what the Louisville District needed to implement in order to provide valuable information to our staff without having to rely on any client side software,” says Terry Siemsen, GIS Specialist for Emergency Operations, USACE – Louisville District.
