TCEQEnvironmental Monitoring Response System, Part 2
Track: Environmental Management
Author(s): Joseph Rincon, Brent Porter
This paper discusses enhancements made to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Environmental Monitoring Response System (EMRS) application. EMRS is functioning as the new agency GIS-based system to monitor near real-time environmental upsets for both air and water within the state of Texas. The EMRS application is helping focus agency resources (regional staff) manage facilities regulated by the TCEQ during environmental upsets. EMRS is built following the AJAX framework and leverages Oracle/ArcSDE, ArcIMS, and ArcGIS Server. Meteorological (wind vectors/precipitation) and near real-time monitoring data feeds provide the active data for this application. Digital Orthophoto Quarter Quadrangles (DOQQs), Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), and TeleAtlas/Dynamap, as well as other layers, provide the foundational spatial data. External air and water trajectories are used within this construct.
