NAPSG Foundation Virtual Training: DHS Geospatial Information Infrastructure 

Please join us on May 27, 2014, for a new virtual session featuring the US Department of Homeland Security's Geospatial Management Office.

The Geospatial Information Infrastructure (GII) is the DHS geospatial enterprise platform containing data services, applications services, and infrastructure built to meet common geospatial requirements across the broad DHS mission space.  The GII architecture consists of geo visualization services, private and public enterprise data.  DHS private data services, hosted in DHS’s hardened datacenter, support access to secure but unclassified data, including the Homeland Security Infrastructure Protection (HSIP) Gold, DHS Mission data, and data feeds from mission partners like USGS, NOAA, NORTHCOM, etc.  Additionally, the base map imagery services, geocoding and other services leverage public data services including Microsoft, Google and ESRI.  Both private and public data services can be accessed and displayed within a simple mapping environment and can be stored and shared within the GII environment.

This NAPSG virtual training exercise on the GII will demonstrate how the Homeland Security and Defense communities leverage the GII to manage geospatial content, search and discover geospatial content, create maps, share maps and geospatial content with others.  The GII connects the Homeland community with mission data and maps, extending the reach of geographic information beyond GIS experts. 

The virtual training exercise will also provide information on how to access the GII using the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) as the identity management service provider.  The GII user community can use their HSIN credential to access GII services.  Additionally, system to system access information will be provided allowing Federal, State, and Local User Defined Operating Picture (UDOP) connection via a secure token to consume GII data services.

The last NAPSG training session on the GII reached capacity in just two days, so register early.
