At VCORE, we wish to provide residents of the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) with accurate, reliable, real-time telemetry data. Living in one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States, it is important for residents of the RGV to have access to vital information regarding flood zones and precipitation data. Our service seeks to provide hurricane flood forecasting and disaster manegment resources to bridge the gap between city officials, hydrology engineers, and the ever-growing population of the RGV.
Our data is sourced from the global and local reputable sources such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA National Hurricane Center, NOAA National Water Center, and the Harlingen Irrigation District to collect, interpret, and parse telemetry data into accurate and comprehensive GIS layers. This data is then fed through our coupled hydrodynamic models, HEC-HMS/HMS-RAS systems which provides us with gulf-water data that we can use to predict watershed inundation. Data is also fed through ADCIRC, ocean flow circulation model to predict hurricane storm surge along the RGV coast.
Our team is backed by local and state-run departmental offices that provide us with data, funding and important insight that enable us to reach out goal.
To transform the Rio Grande Valley, the Americas, and the world through community engagement, sustainable development, and commercialization of university discoveries.
