The Inland Sensitivity Atlas (ISA) is a Geographic Information System (GIS) application providing contingency planners and emergency responders with accurate and relevant information for spill preparedness and response. The Atlas contains environmental, oil, and Geographic Response Plan (GRP) information to support planning and response operations within the USEPA Region 5 jurisdictional area. All data within this project is also incorporated into each of the state government viewers as well.

During an emergency response, Federal and State On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) may use the program to gain situational awareness of downstream/downwind vulnerabilities, as well as upstream/upwind potential responsible parties and much more. For contingency planning, the project can introduce facilities to the communities which may be impacted during a hazardous materials and/or petroleum releases.
