Life-Saving Z-Axis Data in the Emergency Communication Center
When a 9-1-1 call is placed, the caller’s location is a primary piece of information that dispatchers need to deploy emergency response personnel. Where is the caller located? What do their surroundings look like? Could something about that location be an obstacle or even hazardous to first responders?

GeoComm Webinar: What is Dispatchable Location?
Emergency Communication Centers (ECCs) are now receiving raw z-axis position measurements of cell phones during 9-1-1 calls. GeoComm Vertical Location Services and Indoor Maps can convert these raw measurements into actionable dispatchable locations for 9-1-1 telecommunicators, dispatchers, and emergency responders.

GeoComm Perspective: Understanding the Urgency for Indoor Maps
The 9-1-1 industry is at a unique point in time. Technology advancements allow 9-1-1 caller location, X,Y,Z to now be delivered to the PSAP. In order to make this information actionable, indoor maps are needed. Are you interested in learning more about the value of indoor maps and discussing how to start your indoor mapping program is so attend our webinar Getting The Most Out Of Your Public Safety GIS Data Including Indoor Maps on Wednesday, January 26 at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

Public Safety Grade GIS Data is the Foundation of Public Safety Location Intelligence®
With Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data playing a key role across E9-1-1, NG9-1-1, ECC and responder tactical mapping systems and applications, and now indoor and vertical 9-1-1 caller location, it has become an imperative for 9-1-1 to implement Public Safety Grade GIS data. These mission critical life safety systems and applications rely on GIS data to drive emergency response – helping to save lives and protect property. This GIS data must be highly accurate, highly secure, highly available, up-to-date, and commonly accessible to all mission critical life safety applications across 9-1-1 and public safety organizations.

GeoComm Webinar: Embarking on your NG9-1-1 GIS Migration
As public safety moves from E9-1-1 to NG9-1-1 systems, the transitional stage can add another level of complexity to GIS data maintenance. This migration can seem like a large undertaking for public safety and GIS agencies; however, with the mission critical role of GIS data, it’s a worthwhile effort to ensure your system meets data requirements at all stages of the transition. Join Jessica Frye, GISP, ENP, PMP, GeoComm Project Manager and Kathy Liljequist, GeoComm GIS Consultant will discuss what a transitional system for GIS looks like.
