Public Version of Real-Time Assessment and Planning Tool for Oregon Goes Live


News Release from Oregon Office of Emergency Management

Salem, Ore. -- June 29, 2016 -- The Real Time Assessment and Planning Tool for Oregon (RAPTOR) is now available for the public to view incident data about wildfires, areas impacted by flooding, live weather radar, contact information for county emergency managers and more. 

"This application enables users to view and interact with critical maps, aerial imagery, hazards, weather and event related data via the internet anywhere anytime," says Daniel Stoelb, Geographic Information Systems program coordinator for the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. "These maps offer information about what is happening geographically within our area."

RAPTOR is a web mapping application that allows users to spatially display interrelated and aggregated information from various systems in a geospatial platform. Specific elements of information include weather watches and warnings, local storm reports, live weather radar, road closures/delays, and active incidents. The public can access the application at http://arcg.is/1XVxzQ2.

RAPTOR supports Oregon's emergency operations plan by sharing information before, during, and after an incident such as a flood or wildfire. It allows OEM to develop, implement and share information with local and state partners, and enhances Oregon's overall disaster readiness.

For more information about RAPTOR, contact Daniel Stoelb, GIS program coordinator at the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, at daniel.stoelb@state.or.us.
