HERE Technologies expands HIFLD contract

On May 21, Chicago, IL-based HERE Technologies, a location data and technology platform, announced that it has again been named the data provider for the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) program. HIFLD supports more than 5,000 U.S. government credentialed participating partners and three lead federal agencies – including the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Interior – with critical geospatial data to support community preparedness, resilience, research and more.

HERE has provided the authoritative map data for the HIFLD program for nearly 15 years. After a two-year evolution of the program, the U.S. government again selected HERE to provide the foundational map data for emergency responders and partners across federal, state, tribal and local agencies.

“This continues more than a decade of partnership between HERE and the HIFLD (formerly HSIP) mission supporting Homeland Security and the brave men and women in the emergency responder community across the U.S. and its territories,” said Miranda Ashby-Annoon, senior director of public sector sales at HERE Technologies. “This mission critical function requires fresh and accurate transportation datasets to save and protect lives and property before, during and following natural disasters. We are honored to continue as a trusted and established data provider for this essential undertaking.”
