Hurricane Dean Landfall Tomorrow

As Hurricane Dean approaches mainland landfall, many people and organizations are taking steps to hunker down or evacuate.  The following screenshots are from the Composite Application that we built for BP’s Hurricane Management System MOSS Portal.  Current weather satellite imagery is integrated with the Virtual Earth basemap along with layer after layer of human resources and asset data.

Using the ruler tool, I can trace a path from where the satellite imagery places the Eye of Dean (as of 5:19 pm est, Monday, August 20) to the point of predicted landfall south of Cozumel for a distance of 202 nautical miles.  With an estimated overall travel speed of 10 nautical miles per hour, I can anticipate Dean’s Eye to hit land at about 1 o’clock tomorrow afternoon.

In this snapshot I’m drawing an area of interest for a spatial query in the reasonably realistic event that Dean veers northward.  The employees and assets within can be contacted specifically with instructions or an evacuation plan.
