As Hurricane Dorian approaches, the only questions remaining are when and where will the storm make landfall. Using our Geo Feeds feature, TAS Online users with write-access can utilize the National Hurricane Center’s GIS data to plot the storm’s Cone, Track, and Warning data. Leveraging this information will ensure your team is ready to address the inevitable stress accompanied by the storm.
The National Hurricane Center data can be found at https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gis/
Following the steps outlined below, we can utilize the Hurricane Dorian data from TAS Online. We will be using the following:
Please contact your organization’s administrator to gain access to the Geo Feeds feature.
