Title: HIFLD Open and HIFLD Secure
Description:
Abstract: The prison boundaries shapefile contains secure detention facilities. These facilities range in jurisdiction from federal(excluding military) to local governments. Polygon geometry is used to describe the extent of where the incarcerated population is located (fence lines or building footprints). This shapefile's attribution describes many physical and social characteristics of detention facilities in the United States and some of its territories. The attribution for this shapefile was populated by open source search methodologies of authoritative sources.
Purpose: This shapefile contains secure detention facilities for the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) database (https://gii.dhs.gov/HIFLD). This shapefile was manually converted from its original feature class format by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) Team to mitigate automated conversion errors.

Data Quality Information:
Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: No formal attribute accuracy test was conducted. Data from the authoritative sources (as identified in other sections of this metadata) is assumed to be correct and accurate. See also “Overview Description” in the “Entities and Attributes” metadata section.
Logical Consistency Report: Data were extracted from sources (identified in the SOURCE field) and other open source websites to populate the attribute fields; NOT AVAILABLE values (for string and date data types) and -999 values (for numeric data types) denote missing data that was not present in the source data. During quality control, attributes were checked to ensure that they fell within the expected ranges or had expected/valid values. Text attribute values were checked for spelling and usage consistency. No topology tests were conducted. All records were verified to occur within the spatial domain of the shapefile.
Completeness Report: Data is complete as of the most recent date indicated in the Time Period section.
Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: None; all efforts are made to place the geographic representation of the facility on-entity using the best available imagery from a wide variety of sources. Users should read and understand the VAL_METHOD metadata as well as the Processing Steps.
Vertical Positional Accuracy:
Vertical Positional Accuracy Report: None; dataset contains no vertical data.

Process Step:
Process Description:
Authoritative data sources are identified through open source research. That data is then acquired and transformed into a usable data format. The properly formatted data then goes through preprocessing steps that includes a geocoding operation to give spatial context to the data. The data goes through further refinement using remote sensing techniques. After preprocessing, every record goes through a review process and each polygon is determined by the outer most fence or the obvious footprint of the building based on interpretation of the best available imagery and open source information. Polygons were used to represent the idea of population containment. The polygon attempts to outline the area where the incarnated population is most likely to be at any given period of time. The VAL_DATE field indicates the date in which the review step took place.
