Riverside has worked for more than 30 years to meet the unique and changing needs of the water and weather industry. We have long believed in collaborating with companies providing cutting-edge technology to bring science-based actionable information to their clients. We are therefore proud to announce a relationship with TruWeather Solutions, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) headquartered in Virginia, and operating out of New York State. TruWeather is focused on accelerating weather science and technology from labs and universities into commercial operations. TruWeather’s cutting-edge capabilities provide clients a competitive advantage through organization-wide dissemination of highly customized weather messages and visualizations to plan, prepare, and execute decisions and actions consistently for any type of weather scenario. TruWeather has a proven framework for recovering lost profits for weather sensitive businesses.
By joining the functionality of Riverside’s RiverTrak real-time flood inundation maps with TruWeather’s weather forecasting data and alerting platform, we provide an end-to-end solution to improve the quality of data for emergency managers, first responders, community planners, and for businesses and individuals who are affected by weather and flooding. This serves as an essential source of information for planning, preparation, response, and recovery.
Riverside and TruWeather are working together towards a complex view of how water and weather events impact business intelligence and supply logistics decision while simplifying that information for organizations. We will continue the ongoing work of assessing impacts of water quality and how it affects aquiculture and agriculture by way of heavy rains impacting specific areas and evaluating how to best address and mitigate issues that arise.
Riverside and TruWeather are beginning our collaboration with actionable information about the Onion Creek watershed in Austin Texas as a showcase for the American Meteorological Society’s annual meeting in January 2018. This will demonstrate the synergy between RiverTrak’s flood inundation mapping, showcasing a scenario of an extreme flood event, and TruWeather’s alerting capabilities for an emergency management use case.
In addition, Riverside and TruWeather will begin collaborating on a solution incorporating both fine-scale weather forecast and alerting capabilities, and flood inundation mapping for the State of New York. TruWeather is a certified New York State SDVOSB and is one of very few addressing the complex weather needs in that area.
We are enthusiastic about this partnership and look forward to the many opportunities ahead as we continue to address the challenges of rapidly changing water and weather needs in our country and the world.
