Boston, USA, January 2007 – The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), Office of Commercial Partnerships Division, has awarded a contract to Applied Geographics, Inc. (AppGeo) to develop a data definitions schema for the Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP).
The resulting HSIP Data Model will include National, Urban, and Comprehensive geospatial features for a nationally scalable and cost-effective framework for data collection and database development. The project will also result in collateral support materials and tools for HSIP schema navigation and viewing.
“Delivering a stable and mature HSIP Data Model that is practical and useful is a fitting project for AppGeo,” according to Rich Grady, President, AppGeo. “To help ensure that current and accurate geospatial data will be available to support Homeland Security is a goal and effort that we fully support,” Grady said.
