RPI Grab-2

MUNICIPAL (Multi-Network Interdependent Critical Infrastructure Program for the Analysis of Lifelines) is a decision-support tool developed for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Coastal Hazards Center to aid in the restoration of critical infrastructure systems following storm events. MUNICIPAL predicts damage to infrastructure components given a specific disaster scenario, produces an optimal restoration plan for estimated damage, and contains a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) interface to visualize the results.

The 408 Group worked closely with RPI researchers to develop a normalized data model and an Open Source GIS solution which allows Emergency Managers to navigate features and damage and run Optimization simulations.

Technologies Used: Java, PHP, POSTGIS, GeoServer, OpenLayers, jQuery.

408 Group is based in Brooklyn, New York • 917-673-1036 or 718-802-0272 •
