Telvent Patent: GIS-based automated weather alert notification system

GIS-based automated weather alert notification system was granted on Dec 17, 2013.

Abstract:

An automated weather alert system using GIS technology automatically ingests weather data and processes the weather data to determine if localized weather conditions pose a threat to any of a plurality of business operations, each of which have a known location. In the event such threat exists, an employee having responsibility for a threatened business operation is provided with an alert message and asked to acknowledge receipt. Additional notification is automatically provided to the employee's supervisor if such acknowledgment is not received within a predetermined period of time.

Another one that's hard for me to imagine is novel after reading this application earlier in the week.
