HSIP - Transmission Lines

 Last updated on 4/1/2014 3:38:21 PM.

Overview

This data layer in WFDSS is from the Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) Gold 2010 version. HSIP Gold 2010 is a unified inventory of homeland infrastructure foundational geospatial data assembled by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in partnership with Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for use by the Homeland Security/Homeland Defense (HLS/HD) Community. It is a compilation of the best available Federal government and commercial proprietary data.

Data Input

This feature class is from the HSIP Gold 2010 Infrastructure ArcGIS 9.3 energy geodatabase.

The following processing steps were followed to edit the original shapefile for use within WFDSS:

  1. Selected all "In Service" records.
  2. Clipped to Continental US (which includes Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico) with a 20-mile buffer surrounding the coastal areas, in an effort to capture features that are located in the ocean or on off-shore landmasses.
  3. Re-projected the resulting layer to GCS NAD 83.

 

Caution: The data displayed in WFDSS are intended for STRATEGIC USE ONLY. Always verify the positional accuracy of the data with local knowledge.

Transmission Lines (HSIP) GIS Team Contacts

The WFDSS application is "data rich". It requires data which is spatially oriented and graphically displays information to support wildland fire and other natural resource decisions. Due to the type and number of interagency spatial data sets required in April 2009 an interagency GIS Team was formed to provide data support for WFDSS. This Team is responsible for acquiring, consolidating, and validating their agency spatial and tabular data. In addition this team developed and maintained communications among local, regional, and national agency personnel to improve the collection process and provide explicit guidance on data needs. The members of the WFDSS GIS Team are:
