Special thanks to Dr. David Maidment (CRWR), Dr. Stefan Fuest and Matt Ables (KISTERS), and Dan Siegel (Esri) for their individual contributions to the design and implementation of the Central Texas HUB.
The central Texas corridor, better known as “Flash Flood Alley,” is one of the most flood prone regions in the United States. In fact, Texas regularly leads the nation in flood fatalities and flood related property damage each year. During a flash flood, rapidly changing water levels can trap both emergency responders and citizens with little to no warning. In order to mitigate risk to residents and infrastructure, citizens and emergency responders need to exhibit “real-time” situational awareness to respond proactively instead of reactively. With the emergence of the internet, mobile communication networks and social media, it is now possible to quickly disseminate information to a vast audience in “real-time.” Furthermore, the emergence of GIS technology and web services has facilitated the creation of easily understandable map applications that readily convert data into actionable intelligence.
With another successful User Conference behind me, the focus turns back to the Resource Center and providing the community with content and ideas. For those that were able to attend the UC this year, I hope you were able to get all your questions answered by our knowledgeable staff and got your fill of what the new ArcGIS 10 system is. If you didn’t get to join us this year, click here for some useful information and content from the conference.
I’ve received questions in the past about consuming real-time or near real-time data, like weather, in ArcGIS and the best practices in how to do this. There is a template developed for our Public Safety Resource Center that organizes live streams of
information from the internet into an ArcSDE geodatabase. A series of
server-side processes ensure information remains current. Once aggregated, the information can be consumed in the ArcGIS System.
This is a powerful tool to have available since all utilities deal with weather on a daily basis as it impacts on how you do your job. This same methodology could be applied to other systems outside of weather, however, the mechanism on how the data is received could change.

Don’t forget to check out the video on how to use this template as well.
