October 29, 2008 -- Mill Valley, CA: Boundary Solutions, Inc. is pleased to announce its contribution to the GIS Solutions Branch of FEMA’s Information Technology Division’s Hurricane Ike disaster assessment and recovery operations. A previously developed framework between BSI and FEMA enabled expeditious processing of this emergency procurement, started as Ike made landfall. FEMA was soon able to download 40 normalized digital parcel map databases from BSI's National ParcelMap Data Portal. This content, being server-ready, was rapidly integrated as a digital parcel layer with FEMA’s information resources without mishap. Field-of-use includes support of all pertinent federal agencies performing remediation operations for Hurricane Ike Designated Individual and/or Public Assistance Counties.
