schema:description"Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, many federal government agencies began restricting some of their publicly available geospatial data and information, particularly sources accessible through the World Wide Web. U.S. decisionmakers confront a major analytical challenge in assessing whether and how such information specifically helps potential attackers, including terrorists, to select U.S. homeland sites and plan their attacks. At the direction of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, researchers at the RAND Corporation sought to better understand how publicly available geospatial information can be exploited by possible attackers and what kinds of information might prove most valuable. After evaluating both the "supply" and "demand" of geospatial information, including a survey of several thousand Web sites, RAND researchers developed an analytical framework that applies three key criteria--usefulness, uniqueness, and societal benefits and costs--to assessing the homeland security implications of geospatial information that is publicly available. The researchers offer recommendations on additional steps that the federal government can take to increase the awareness of the public and private sectors concerning the potential homeland security implications of geospatial information."@en
