Overview Edit

DHS’s National Biosurveillance Integration Center’s (NBIC) Biological Common Operating Picture (BCOP), a manually updated Google Maps application of current worldwide biological events being tracked. Officials can view the BCOP on the Homeland Security Information Network. The BCOP provides a situational awareness tool for the National Biosurveillance Integration System (NBIS) — the community of federal and other stakeholders that have information that can be used to enhance the safety and security of the United States against potential biological events of national significance.

NBIC supports the BCOP through a system — the Biosurveillance Common Operating Network (BCON) — that monitors, tracks, and disseminates available NBIS-partner information, but relies largely on information from publicly available sources, such as news articles.
