  2. 2. Esri Improves Homeland SecurityA Complete System to Meet Your MissionToday’s homeland security landscape is increasingly complex. For several years, funding tosupport the homeland security mission was generally available. Today, with reduced budgetsand reduced funding, the ability to acquire additional personnel and equipment is much morechallenging. Esri® technology enables you to effectively assess your vulnerabilities and optimizethe deployment of public safety resources so you get the most from your existing investments.To overcome these and other challenges, you need better intelligence. And you need effectivecommunication and collaboration. Esri gives you a complete system to plan, prepare, andrespond in a moment’s notice. For decades, Esri has partnered with federal, state, and localagencies to design, build, and deploy geographic information system (GIS) solutions forimproved homeland security. Esri Provides a Complete System Esri enables you to optimize decision making throughout the organization. Its software services uniquely support homeland and national security capabilities on the desktop, within the cloud, or out in the field.This vulnerability assessment, generated for the hazard mitigation plan, is not onlypublished in paper form but also operationalized as another map overlay in thecommon operating picture. Planning and Analysis Esri technology supplies unmatched information analytics. You can accurately determine potential impacts by fusing incident data with critical infrastructure, population densities, and other community values. Vulnerabilities can be observed, modeled, and better understood using spatial analysis tools. You can guard against potential consequences and develop comprehensive mitigation and risk-based contingency plans.Planning and Analysis—Determining Potential Threat Impacts with ArcGIS®
  3. 3. Data Management You need to take volumes of disparate data and transform it into actionable information. GIS provides a standards- based platform that easily fits within your existing information technology structure. It gives you a powerful integration platform for storing and maintaining data using location as the common denominator.Data Management—Bringing Data from Disparate Sources into a Common Viewer Situational Awareness Effective situational awareness means accessing real- time, secure information that’s continuously updated. GIS brings together multiple data streams (sensors, cameras, traffic, weather, incidents, etc.) using a geospatial interface to represent the current situation at any scale. You can quickly display, understand, and share vital intelligence for decision support.Situational Awareness— Field Operations—UtilizingIllustrating a Chemical Plume and Mobile Solutions in ConnectedIdentifying Road Closures and and Disconnected EnvironmentsCritical Infrastructure with ThisCommon Operating Picture Field Operations GIS supplies mobile tools that enable you to get timely information anytime and anywhere and to rapidly push that data out to the field. Mobile GIS easily captures, sends, and receives information using a map-based common operating picture. Information is more effectively shared, and you have true interoperability for a safer, more effective response.Learn more about GIS for homelandsecurity at
