Webinar Recap: Embarking on your NG9-1-1 GIS Migration
On Friday, March 5, 2021, GeoComm hosted a webinar titled, “Embarking on your NG9-1-1 GIS Migration.”
GeoComm’s Jessica Frye, ENP, GIS Project manager and Kathy Liljequist, GIS Consultant offered attendees the opportunity to learn more about critical GIS data maintenance workflow decisions that 9-1-1 and GIS departments face as they embark on the NG9-1-1 GIS migration. Utilizing their local, regional, and state NG-1-1 GIS project experience and involvement in industry standards development, they sat down to discuss:
Important stages agencies can expect while preparing GIS data for NG9-1-1 such as GIS data assessment and improvement efforts
Various factors that impact 9-1-1 and GIS teams during the NG9-1-1 transition - one example -how street names are handled
Important changes that GIS data undergoes as entities work to meet GIS data requirements for the development of a GIS-based MSAG
“While the technology to implement these new IP-based 9-1-1 systems is available now, the transition to NG9-1-1 will involve much more than just new computer hardware and software.”
9-1-1 systems are going through vast changes from tabular database use to geospatial call routing, and the transition phase is critical to understand as it acts as a bridge where various legacy and NG9-1-1 components work together.
