Innovative products and services have always fueled
the growth of the company, but its future and longevity depended on some key business decisions. Foremost was the strategy
to integrate the products and services into customized tool kits that gave customers exactly the solution they need. WeatherData
made a major decision in 2002 when it embarked on developing a powerful consumer product, Storm Hawk®. Storm Hawk brings weather to a different scale than the average
consumer is used to. The company amassed into this new product all of its weather expertise, innovations to date, and 15 years'
experience in GIS-based mapping software. For the first time, consumers and businesses will have a "User Centric™"
weather experience. Anywhere, anytime, consumers can get highly specific weather information centered on their location and
oriented to their direction of travel.
For certain industries such as emergency management and television weather,
Storm Hawk will interact with WeatherData's patented SelectWarn® command and warning center. SelectWarn (for "selective
warning") enables the precise warning of people in danger while not warning those that will be unaffected by a storm.
SelectWarn and Storm Hawk not only have an important role in weather warnings, but also have vital capabilities in the field
of homeland security.
