Critical Infrastructure Data Modeling

For the national emergency preparedness and response community, ORNL is pursuing research and development on large scale data collection, feature generation, and data integration to produce best in class geospatial databases for a number of nation's critical infrastructure assets, including schools, prisons, hospitals, daycare centers, railway, mobile home parks, and solid waste disposal sites.

HSIP Data Creation and Support
— 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.

Enhanced Railway Network Analysis
— A topologically accurate 1:100K rail network is needed for detailed routing and infrastructure analysis. ORNL has worked with an NGA-enhanced FRA 1:100K rail network to include proper interconnections between rail lines, interchange locations between railroad companies, and updated rail attributes. Status of each segment (main line, industrial spur, siding, yard track, other track, out-of-service, abandoned, physically removed, or trail) is included.

Railroad Routing and Visualization Application (RRVA)
— To allow the Office of Safety of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to assess rail transport flows and identify locations of grade crossings, accident locations, and track defect locations along rail lines.
