RDAC Software Donated to RENCI at ECU

RDAC's Flood Tool calculates areas of potential flooding and displays them as a color-coded gradient. In this example, the results of the Flood Tool have been pushed to Google Earth.

A team from IP Systems International visited the RENCI at ECU offices yesterday to install and demonstrate their Rapid Dynamic Analytical Capability (RDAC) software. The RDAC Geospatial solution "is a dynamic, high-speed analytical application capable of performing rapid, real-time, geospatial data analysis" and is used to relay critical information, such as situational awareness, to decision makers.

IP Systems demonstrates RDAC in the AVO Node room.

RDAC can be integrated with 3D environments like Google Earth and will aid in the development of RENCI at ECU’s storm surge inundation models. RDAC’s Flood Tool calculates areas of potential flooding and displays them as a color-coded gradient. This can then be overlaid on Google Earth to help determine which roads would be passable or which parts of a city would need to be evacuated. Another feature of RDAC, the Area of Effect Tool, can be used to extract specific data such as building footprints, water mains, fire hydrants, and transportation infrastructure.

IP Systems has generously donated four one-year licenses to RENCI at ECU. This gift includes installation as well as regular direct tech support and training in the coming months.

You can read more about IP Systems and the RDAC software package at their website, www.ipsysi.com. Their demonstration video is available here.
