We made the decision, based on the visualization data and consultation from Earth Networks meteorologists, to close the fair on two occasions due to approaching thunderstorms. We made the right call both times and evacuated all guests from the grounds in a timely fashion.Andrew Spears

For us, actually going onto the Earth Networks site and looking at all of the different lightning strikes and seeing the lightning patterns more in - There isn't any other radar site that we've found that has been as good as Earth Networks.Matt Fuller

Accessing updated, local weather conditions; watching weather as it happens in real time; and receiving prompt alerts on a web-based system during weather events is significant.

The Montgomery County
The Division of Highway Services is a branch of the county Department of Transportation (MCDOT). They're responsible for over 5,300 lane miles, 70,000 parking spaces, and 78 transit routes in Maryland's most populous county. Their proximity to the nation's capital also results in more tourists and business travelers on their roads.
Due to their limited amount of winter weather equipment, MCDOT can only handle snowstorms up to 4 inches. To minimize disruptions for snowfall amounts higher than 4 inches, they need to rent extra equipment from private contractors. This must be done ahead of time before rival municipalities lock down the resources first.
Real-time weather visualization from Sferic Maps helps MCDOT wind speed, radar, and temperature profiles to help forecast snowfall amounts. These data points help them implement effective planning, clean-up, and recovery activities for winter weather events.
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation operated smoothly during one of the Mid-Atlantic’s worst winter storms: Winter Storm Jonas. During January 2016, MCDOT planned ahead of time to acquire 825 pieces of equipment to plan and start cleanup efforts just one day after the storm moved out of the region.
