Virtual Louisiana 2 (VL2) is our updated version of Virtual Louisiana which is now the common operational picture for the emergency response community for not only day to day planning, but also during emergency response. Louisiana’s Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) launched Virtual Louisiana in August of 2007 and now has updated that platform to VL2 which officially came online in March of 2018.
The VL2 platform is based on the world leading mapping and analytics platform, ArcGIS by ESRI. This allows users to tap into the unique set of capabilities of location-based analytics, collaborate live with other users, share maps, applications and reports.
