Richmond, VA - June 8, 2009 - Timmons Group, a leader in Enterprise Geospatial products and services, was recently selected by the James River Association (JRA) to provide software development solutions.
The James River Association’s mission is to be guardian of the James River as it flows through Virginia. They provide a voice for the river and take action to promote conservation and responsible stewardship of its natural resources. They achieve these goals through four core programs: Watershed Restoration; Education and Outreach; River Advocacy; and their Riverkeeper program
As part of this mission and the furthering of their core goals, the JRA contracted with Timmons Group to provide an interactive website for the estimation of rainfall runoff quality and quantity to landowners. Using this new website, landowners and James River constituents will be able to locate their address, provide input for land use characteristics, and generate output reports detailing lot runoff values including an estimated nitrogen and phosphorous load that can contribute to problems in the James River. The site will be built using ESRI ArcGIS Server 9.3.1, Geoprocessing models and will focus on usability and streamlining the user’s experience.
"We are extremely enthusiastic to work with the Association. Being located about a block from the James River makes this project very relevant for us. Timmons Group is active in the LEED / Green Design movement and are excited when we get the chance to merge technology with environmental solutions." said Lowell Ballard with Timmons Group.
