Indoor Maps Pilot Project Completed in Burt and Cuming County, Nebraska
St. Cloud, MN: GeoComm, provider of Public Safety Location Intelligence®, has completed a pilot project with the Burt County Sheriff’s Office and Cuming County E911 Dispatch in Nebraska to integrate GIS-based indoor maps for one school in each county into their GeoComm Dispatch Map software.
GIS-based indoor maps allow telecommunicators to search, view, and filter out underlying data within the map for user-friendly views. These maps can also route first responders to specific locations indoors to reduce emergency response times.
These newly developed indoor maps will be viewable in GeoComm Dispatch Map. GeoComm Dispatch Map is powered by Esri technology and designed to meet stringent and demanding requirements of mission critical emergency response GIS. This software brings mapping and GIS data together to provide your agency with a more accurate and faster emergency response.
“Thank you for including West Point Public Schools in this project!” said D.J. Weddle, Superintendent. “I feel that this is a very worthwhile initiative.”
“We are proud to partner with two of our long-standing customers (Burt and Cuming Counties) on this important initiative to enhance school safety and reduce emergency response times.” said Stacen Gross, GeoComm’s Nebraska Territory Manager. “It is exciting to show the power of GIS-based indoor maps.”
The State of Nebraska introduced Nebraska LB673; this bill proposes to provide grants to schools that adopt a policy to provide emergency response mapping data to law enforcement agencies and provide powers and duties for the State Department of Education and State Board of Education.
