Comment: As anyone knows who has read this blog for more than a month or so, I have lots of issues with the DHS/HIFLD/HSIP top-down approach of data collection run by contractors (i.e., see: DHS Geospatial Update PPT, this blog). That being said, there is real value in a federated approach that helps define national geospatial needs and sets in motion a process - even if it is one that still needs major torquing. Consequently, I would strongly encourage you to attend this webinar if you are able to do so. There are lots of good people involved, and they have brought the Federal suite of geospatial products supporting the Emergency Services Sector a LONG way from where things started.
