Almeria Analytics is a New Mexico company that received NOAA Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) funding. We were subcontracted in Phase II to develop Verde — a suite of emergency preparedness tools with scientists and engineers from Oak Ridge National Lab and the University of Tennessee.
Verde was designed to allows its users to monitor for threats, inventory critical energy infrastructure in harm’s way, and predict impact on those threats. Verde is designed for the advanced user, with access to numerous data sources and on-the-fly calculations. Threat data sources include wildfires, hurricanes, and flooding events. The current and predicted impact on critical infrastructure, such as the electric grid, are calculated using propriety models. Additionally, vulnerable population counts for a custom geographic extent are computed and made available to the app’s users.
Acting as full-stack developers, we developed a web-based version of Verde and collaborated with a local iOS development firm to build its native iOS equivalent. Additionally, we designed and developed the server architecture (AWS, Geoserver) to support the apps. The iOS app was released in the IGAPP/GeoINT and iTunes stores.
