IP Gateway Map View

Screenshot of IP Gateway Map View displaying map of the United States with red areas showing increased risk.The IP Gateway Map View function displays real-time information on critical infrastructure to increase situational awareness and provide a common operating picture of the nation’s critical infrastructure. The Map View contains critical facility and asset data collected by the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP); the NPPD Office of Cybersecurity and Communications; and state, local, tribal, and territorial critical infrastructure protection mission partners. In addition to facility and asset information, the Map View also displays real-time overlays for weather, traffic, and population.

Visual Representation of Critical Infrastructure

The IP Gateway's Map View function enables users to view information on critical facilities and assets in specific states, counties, and/or cities, providing a snapshot of the critical infrastructure within a particular jurisdiction. Selecting a particular facility or asset icon provides an overview of surveys, assessments, dependency information, and any reports available for a given facility or asset.

Map Overlays

The Map View features overlays that allow users to incorporate relevant, timely data into their infrastructure protection efforts. These overlays include static layers, such as facilities-by-sector, daytime population, or street-view pictures, and dynamic layers, such as current wildfire or weather elements. Other map layers include:

  • Weather
  • Traffic
  • Public Transit
  • Natural Hazards
  • Homeland Security Infrastructure Protection (HSIP) data
  • LandScan population data
