The Role and Status of GIS in Homeland Security
Track: Homeland Security
Author(s): William Holland
Homeland security addresses not only external threats but also those that come from within including domestic terrorism, crime, and ecological and natural disasters. Intelligence gathering, preparedness planning, and disaster response are all information (not necessarily data) intensive efforts. These critical undertakings require unprecedented levels of cooperation and coordination in data gathering and information processing and dissemination. At the same time, system and data security are of the highest priority. This session will explore the role and status of GIS in homeland security including the technical and policy implications for the public and private sectors.
