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