Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
GIAV creates and promotes systems and applications for users to visualize, understand and interpret data in many ways that reveal spatial relationships, patterns and trends. The GIAV branch creates static maps, reports, charts in addition to dynamic data displayed on line through the GeoHEALTH Platform. With over 10,000 layers of data available from many federal, state, and local sources that are updated from monthly to within minutes, leadership and users of the
GeoHEALTH Platform are able to view data on desktop computers, tablets or smart devices. The spatial data within the ASPR/GIAV database that is maintained by the geospatial staff can be combined with other HHS and external data sources to increase the utility of data across the Department of Health and Human Services. The GIAV Branch is responsible for the maintenance and management of the GeoHEALTH platform and enhancing capabilities through development and systems administration. GIAV also gathers data by working with interagency partners to capture data sources both pre-incident/event and during a response in order to more accurately conduct spatial analysis mapping for timely situational awareness and decision support.
The ICR Branch coordinates information by working with stakeholders and internal/external subject matter experts; establishing partnerships and building relationships; and establishing information sharing procedures. ICR enhances information collection by standardizing and setting requirements and maintaining information and data collection plans and protocols. ICR also plays a significant role in dissemination of information and reporting by developing briefings and reports, responding to requests for information, and sharing maps, graphics and data visualization products. ICR is home to ASPR’s National Response Coordination Center ESF8 Program and is expanding ASPR’s regional footprint by imbedding IMD staff in each of the ten FEMA regions alongside ASPR’s Regional Emergency Coordinators (RECs).
