RAPTOR has been recognized by the Department of Homeland Security as a key application for the Geospatial Concept of Operations (GeoCONOPS)! This recognizes OEM and RAPTOR as a geospatial program that supports Homeland Security Missions and National Preparedness. We are the very first State Agency and associated application listed on their new website. You can see RAPTOR and OEM highlighted as a primary stakeholder, capability, and in the near future will be listed as a best practice.
A little about the GEOCONOPS:
GOAL: Improve geospatial national preparedness by increasing the overall capacity and capability necessary, at all levels of government, to identify and utilize geospatial data, capabilities, and resources in order to conduct homeland security missions and improve national preparedness.
GeoCONOPS is a “roadmap to understand and to understand and improve the coordination of geospatial activities across the entire spectrum of the Nation. The GeoCONOPS includes community resources and capabilities, best practices, a catalog of authoritative data, and identification of technical capabilities, and is intended to support the geospatial community within the Homeland Security Enterprise.”
