STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — August 17, 2010 — AccuWeather.com, the world's leading multimedia weather information source, today introduces SkyGuard® Online, an interactive mapping system that uses the ESRI, Inc. ArcGIS 10 Enabled technology to help businesses track how weather will impact their operations.

“SkyGuard Online is an easy to use, web-based solution requiring no installation or support - our customers can use it immediately,” said Paul Raymond, Director, SkyGuard Division. “Delivered all on one screen, our meteorologists provide accurate, comprehensive, and customized weather data and warnings that are specific to our customers’ sites. Our customers use that information to proactively plan and make informed decisions about weather’s impact on their business operations.”
