Recent HSIN Developments

The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) has recently implemented two efforts which should be of interest to readers of this blog:

1.) For the past several months, the HSIN Outreach Team has been distributing a newsletter about the HSIN community. To review the current version of that effort, use the link below:

(DHS, October 2013)

2.) According to the HIFLD Working Group, 2013 Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) Gold data sets are now available in the DHS Geospatial Information Infrastructure (GII)’s OneView application (https://gii.dhs.gov/oneview).  These layers can be found by: 
  • Clicking on the Layer menu on the OneView menu bar, and 
  • Then looking for the HSIP 2013 layers at the bottom of the table of contents. (To consume the 2013 HSIP Gold as a geospatial web service for use in web applications, please contact the DHS Geospatial Management office at gmo@hq.dhs.gov.)

Additional information about this development is as follows:
  • Links to the GII and HSIP Freedom can also be found on the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) Geospatial Resource Community (GRC) via https://hsin.dhs.gov/fed/GIS/Pages/default.aspx.
  • Access to OneView is available to anyone with a valid HSIN account. To request a HSIN account and membership to the GRC please contact the HSIN helpdesk at 1-866-430-0162 or hsin.helpdesk@hq.dhs.gov.
  • If you have any questions on the GII, GRC, or HSIP Freedom please contact the DHS GMO at gmo@hq.dhs.gov.
