Geo-Tagged Map Shows Impact of Winter Storm Juno in Real Time

VisionLink map charts damage reports as historic storm hits the Northeast

BOULDER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 27, 2015VisionLink, a community-inspired software and consulting company, has developed a free, shareable, real-time, geo-tagged map depicting actual damage reports produced by winter storm Juno.

VisionLink is partnering with local churches and community groups to proactively poll more than 18,000 people located throughout the greater New York and New Jersey area. The goal is to provide the public, media outlets and participating organizations with locally vetted information about the blizzard's impact from those living in the storm's path.

“Today’s technology allows us to gather information like never before and in this case, directly from those impacted by the storm to improve situational awareness and promote whole-community recovery. This tool allows anyone in the country to track the impact of this major weather event,” said Dr. Douglas Zimmerman, president and CEO of VisionLink.

VisionLink encourages local and national media to share and embed this unique map on their websites to better educate their audience on the blizzard’s progress and impact. For instructions to view, share or add the map to your own site, please visit: www.WinterStormMap.com
