DHS/USCIS/PIA-090 USCIS ArcGIS Enterprise System

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) developed the USCIS ArcGIS1 Enterprise System (AES), a Geographic Information System (GIS), which creates maps and geographic data to enable mapping as a common visual language promoting analysis and decision-making. The USCIS ArcGIS Enterprise System allows USCIS to efficiently analyze geographic data about where USCIS-related operations occur and their connections through high-level statistical aggregated reports. The ArcGIS Enterprise System is also used to geospatially display USCIS information via web-based maps to assist with decision-making across the agency and better serve its stakeholders. It will be used in operations to include evaluating office workloads, resource allocation, determining trends of potential fraud, locating current and potential USCIS assets, and identifying employees and facilities that may be at risk from natural disasters. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) documents the potential privacy implications associated with the collection, use, and maintenance of personally identifiable information (PII) by the ArcGIS Enterprise System.
