  • Assess

    Gain new perspective through a GIS data assessment by taking a complete look at the current state of your GIS data and determining its NG9-1-1 readiness.

  • Improve

    GIS data improvement may include GIS data cleanup, remediation, and enhancing your Public Safety Grade GIS data with additional layers or attributes for an NG9-1-1 system.

  • Maintain

    Once the GIS datasets are improved, maintaining the consistency and integrity of these local, regional, and statewide GIS datasets is an important element.

 

 

Z-axis and Indoor Maps, the Intersection of Location for Public Safety

Indoor maps and location accuracy are important parts of the public safety ecosystem as we expand the need for information to assist first responders in understanding where they are.  The major cellular carriers are now providing not only X and Y location information, but also Z-axis data.  The Z-axis information provided on the DataStream comes into the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) as a Height Above Ellipsoid (HAE) or Uncompensated Barometric Pressure (UBP).  Unfortunately, this information coming in is content without context.  Understanding the relationship of what the HAE is, and the translation from height above terrain or floor in an indoor map will be explored.

  • Vertical Location Services

  • Indoor Maps

    In order to improve situational awareness and reduce response times, emergency responders need more detailed information about the facilities to which they are responding.  An address point on a map with no additional structure information provides little location context to call takers and first responders.  Indoor maps are the next level of precise location information.
