Streamline your winter weather operations

Winter weather impacts roadway safety and increases the risk of traffic accidents. Governments spend over two billion dollars annually to plan, prepare, and execute winter weather operations. As the intensity of winter storms increase, it is crucial for agencies to incorporate real-time data in their response activities.

ArcGIS Solutions, Esri’s collection of industry-specific configurations of ArcGIS, offers a real-time mapping, technology-based Winter Weather Operations solution. This solution utilizes ArcGIS Velocity, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) Internet of Things (IoT) application that allows you to ingest, visualize, and analyze streaming data in real time to make informed operational decisions.
