September 8, 2005 -- In light of the tragic devastation of Hurricane Katrina, MapInfo Corporation is volunteering its services to assist with the recovery efforts. In this time of recovery, we can assist organizations with:
- Creating and posting Internet and/or physical maps of affected locations, utilities, telecommunication infrastructure, etc.
- Tracking assets, such as equipment, emergency services
- Developing maps of relief locations including hospitals, kitchens and shelters.
For organizations that are current MapInfo licensees, we will waive, where appropriate, license restrictions during the declared disaster period. Whether your organization is a current customer or not, we would be pleased to produce maps or provide the software and data necessary to assist in the production of maps. We can post maps to the Internet for your convenience. We are also volunteering to you, where possible, the use of our professional service group on-site to help facilitate the production of maps. Our partner, TeleAtlas, has also offered to provide data, as needed, to create maps.
Please contact MapInfo for assistance. Please call toll-free, 800.619.2333 (9am – 5pm EDT); outside these hours, please call Brian Weiss, MapInfo’s senior marketing manager, public sector at 518-469-0649.
