1 FGDC Homeland Security Working Group Information Content Subgroup Futures

2 Background (Report to FGDC Aug 2005)

3 Information Content Subgroup PROJECT TITLE: Beyond-Framework: Information Content Requirements for Geospatial Homeland Security Applications DATE: June 20, 2005 (revision) AUSPICES: Homeland Security Working Group, Federal Geographic Data Committee POINT OF CONTACT: The U.S. Geological Survey will call the group together. OBJECTIVES: Provide principles and guidance on geospatial information content useful for homeland security applications.

4 SCOPE: Starting with the Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) report, compile and publish recommendations about information content that organizations should consider when they acquire and manage geospatial data that support homeland security applications. Provide mechanism to review, refine, and expand such guidance. Identify interfaces to other geospatial communities working on related topics of interest. ASSUMPTIONS: Initial efforts to concentrate on the “minimum” content required for information about structures. Effort is to concentrate on “gaps” to be filled outside of existing efforts on information content specification. (For example, the effort will not duplicate “base map” standards developed through Geospatial One Stop.)

5 JUSTIFICATION/BENEFITS: Geospatial applications are useful for supporting the homeland security community in protecting against, planning for, responding to, and recovering from events. Geospatial data needed to support such applications include those that are knowable in advance (for example, base maps, infrastructure, and facilities that are converted to alternate uses during events). Such information often is developed for purposes other than homeland security applications and by organizations different from those that have a “homeland security mission”. Consensus guidance that identifies useful information content will help organizations that have a homeland security mission be prepared, will encourage uniformity and interoperability among organizations that have geospatial data that could contribute to homeland security, applications, and will aid collaboration among organizations. There have been several efforts to identify such information content. The relationship among these efforts and processes in which “best practices” and new needs are incorporated are murky. The working group’s efforts would provide a means to develop consensus guidance and incorporate new news and “best practices.”

6 DEVELOPMENT AND COMPLETION SCHEDULE: Initial task: By the end of summer 2005 (prefer July; no later than September): Compile initial guidance about the “minimum” information content related to structures that is useful for homeland security applications. Initial efforts should concentrate on structures. The group should concentrate on “gaps” regarding information content needed for homeland security applications that is not covered by other efforts (especially the standards for ‘base map’ information developed through Geospatial One Stop). Note that the main intention is to compile information about content; examples of implementations provided for reference purposes can be added as informative annexes. Identify a means of maintaining the guidance and incorporating “best practices” and a schedule for updating the guidance. Identify sources of and interfaces with organizations that can provide information about new needs and best practices. Identify additional products beyond the guidance that member organizations of the working group would find helpful.

7 PARTICIPANTS: To be identified by working group members. TARGET AUTHORIZATION BODY: Guidance issued by the working group to be used by member organizations.
