Built for the Disaster Community
Subscribe to the platform as an integrated service and gain access to clustered GPU servers in a multi cloud environment, providing scalability and resilience for any incident size and scope. Purposefully designed to support integration with existing operations platforms, our platform allows you to gain all the necessary contextual relevance for Emergency Management within existing operational environments. Additionally, Source System of Record (SSoR) level data from all government sources assures end users that all decision support is provided using authoritative datasets from requisite approved entities.
Tailored to You
Our platform converges cross sector data in real-time, utilizing geospatial charting to allow you to visualize the current on-the-ground situation. This gives you the ability to view a situation overview as well as dive deeper into the impact metrics, in order to make more informed decisions on how to act. Your organization can find the disaster's effects on the power grid, health and medical systems, safety and security, and much more, all in one place.
Free software to help communities in need
Our team partnered with World Hope International to build Get Support, consulting on how to best address the need created by COVID in communities and building a corresponding custom software solution. The Get-Support software project allows communities to match those in need with those willing to help from local organizations such as churches, temples, mosques, or any community group. Individuals can request or donate both goods and services through Get-Support, everything from the delivery of daily living requirements such as groceries and toiletries to assistance with services such as yard work, childcare, or even just to reach out for a compassionate call.
Fighting against social media misinformation
Bad actors on the internet spread intentionally false websites, statements, and theories on social media to disinform and undermine authoritative or trusted sources as well as public's trust in proper sources. COVID-19 and global elections have exposed how bad actors and advanced persistent threats spread hateful, intentionally harmful, and incorrect statements to achieve a political objective or cause public discord. Our team partnered with Graphistry for Project Domino to fight against social media disinformation using GPUs, graph analytics, and neural networks.
Welcome to the Open Disaster Data Store (ODDS)
Our team created the first ever open data store with analytics ready data sets in multiple formats that are specifically curated for disaster managers. The data store continues to grow everyday with volunteers and team members contributing to the inventory of authoritative and trusted data sources.
Our team follows a core set of design principles for guiding the development and sustainability of our technology stack.
Before deploying any capability, we engage the user community to get their inputs and feedback on the design and development of our tools, ensuring that our tech stack is purpose built for their needs.
We focus the design of technology stack on evidence-based science and quality data curation. One of our core products, the Open Disaster Data Store (ODDS), provides the most comprehensive disaster related data stores on the planet. Leverage our rich data environment for disaster risk reduction, resilience, and response and recovery efforts.
Storytelling is an intrinsic human characteristic; stories connect communities before, during, and after disasters. We strive to build tools to allow users and their communities to tell stories with the data, to compel action and decision-making to reduce risk and help build resilience.
Disasters and crises always impact the most vulnerable members of society, affecting those without equitable socio-economic status or access to power structures. Our goal is to democratize our technologies, from our open source tools, open data, and philanthropic efforts, while maintaining a sustainable, environmentally responsible company. In addition, we strive to provide tools to help risk reduction efforts in communities to address acute and systemic vulnerability and inequity before, during, and after disasters.
Risk communication efforts will fail if the recipients of the information cannot understand it. Our company seeks to build tools that inform and educate communities, households, and individuals about risk, to enhance global risk literacy before, during, and after disasters.
Communities, agencies, and industry must prepare for all-hazards, from pandemics to earthquakes to major hurricanes. Our tools provide the richest data environment with the most comprehensive modeling and analytics inventory to simulate, plan, train, exercise, and gamify your preparedness activities.
