HSIP Data Creation and Support

Problem Statement:

  • To create government owned critical infrastructure geospatial datasets in support of a single Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) geospatial database to support domestic operational, situational, and strategic awareness of the nation’s infrastructure to support crisis and consequence management, preparedness planning, and critical infrastructure analysis and protection.

Technical Approach:

  • Leverage existing spatial database developmental efforts already underway for inclusion in the LandScan model effort; specifically K-12 public and private Schools, Colleges and Universities, Prisons, and Day-care centers.


  • Continuously maintained critical infrastructure datasets suitable for use and application by the national, state and local emergency preparation and response community as well as appropriate for inclusion in LandScan modeling efforts.
