Virtual USA Virtual Library to be Decommissioned

Based on lessons learned from five years of Virtual USA pilots, the three-year CAPSTONE-14 Earthquake Exercise process, and multiple rounds of feedback from stakeholders, the Virtual USA® Virtual Library will be decommissioned on September 30, 2014. Deactivating the library will pave the way for additional advancements in the field of information sharing for first responders. All Virtual Library users have been contacted and are invited to migrate data they’d like to continue sharing with the public in the NISC’s vUSA Common Library on ArcGIS Online. The NISC is looking at additional tools to maximize access to data and and to improve data management for enhanced decision making. More details about vUSA are available on our website.
