Commonwealth of Kentucky Becomes 17th State to Select GeoComm for NG9-1-1 GIS Project
GeoComm, the leading provider of Public Safety Location Intelligence®, 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. GeoComm will provide a statewide agency by agency GIS data assessment to review the current state of the GIS data being utilized throughout the Commonwealth and will outline recommended steps for GIS data improvement. GeoComm GIS Data Hub is an on-demand, cloud-based solution, which will be utilized by local GIS data maintainers at the county-level to conduct regular GIS data quality control checks with the goal to have a complete, accurate dataset for the entire Commonwealth.
The Kentucky 911 Service Board will also have access to GeoComm Contributor, a cloud-native, subscription-based software application, empowering county level GIS data editors throughout Kentucky with an easy way to collaborate on GIS data updates.
“We are honored to partner with the Commonwealth of Kentucky on this important NG9-1-1 GIS project, the first step in their statewide implementation. We are confident the information provided to them throughout this project will empower them with a clear path for achieving an accurate and up-to-date statewide GIS dataset to use in their NG9-1-1 system,” stated Greg Spadorcio, Vice President of Sales.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky becomes GeoComm’s seventeenth statewide NG9-1-1 GIS project.
