Implementing new 9-1-1 mapping technology can be a large undertaking for public safety and GIS agencies, but experiencing improvements in 9-1-1 call processing capabilities and knowing that the 9-1-1 map is reliable, makes the process worthwhile.

When answering a 9-1-1 call, access to accurate and up–to–date map data is essential because seconds count. Fortunately, achieving the necessary quality map data needed for 9-1-1 can happen with just a few steps. Your steps involve assessing, improving, maintaining, and sharing your Geographic Information System (GIS) data to fulfill its mission critical role in current and future 9-1-1 systems.

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 is pleased to announce its selection by the Commonwealth of Kentucky for a multi-year statewide NG9-1-1 GIS project. As Kentucky transitions to a NG9-1-1 environment, the need for a robust GIS environment at local, regional, and statewide agencies dramatically increases. This project will lay the groundwork for the Commonwealth to transition to a future Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) environment.

The State of Michigan to provide GIS data assessment and improvement services to counties across the state to support their NG9-1-1 migration. As the State of Michigan prepares for its transitions to a NG9-1-1 environment the need for a robust GIS environment at local, regional, and statewide agencies dramatically increases. This project includes utilizing GeoComm’s proven assess, improve, and maintain process to empower public safety agencies throughout the state to achieve Public Safety Grade GIS data.

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.
