Homeland Security Mapping
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) provides geospatial products and services for government agencies and defense contractors for various applications in Defense and Intelligence Mapping.
Every community has facilities that are critical, from emergency response to safety operations. GIS applications such as orthorectified topographic base maps, remote sensing data, and vector layers (i.e., roads, rivers, buildings) are now the basis for assessing security risks and modeling emergency scenarios. Satellite imagery and GIS map data is critical to homeland security because it enables managers, supervisors and emergency personnel to integrate multiple information types into a common visual application.
