GeoComm is dedicated to helping agencies throughout the State of California understand all of these questions and have the software and services available to help overcome your challenges.
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.
GIS data improvement may include GIS data cleanup, remediation, and enhancing your GIS data with additional layers or attributes for an NG9-1-1 system.
Once the GIS datasets are improved, maintaining the consistency and integrity of these local, regional, and statewide GIS datasets is an important element.
“I come from a deep technical background with a Masters in GIS. My career began at GeoComm as a GIS Specialist where I developed NG9-1-1 and Indoor Mapping datasets. I am currently a Territory Sales Manager residing in Anderson, CA and am responsible for maintaining relationships and helping agencies strategically develop their datasets to meet NG9-1-1 requirements while enhancing the abilities of dispatch. My greatest passion is for indoor mapping solutions that can leverage device-based locations and real-time incident management.”
Funding Available To Help Get Your GIS Data Ready!
The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is currently working on a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) implementation project. In the near future, your local GIS data will be used to route NG9-1-1 calls. Now is the time to review your GIS data analysis results to determine what, if any, actions will be required to make your GIS data NG9-1-1 ready!
State grant funding is available for the data development services needed to improve your GIS data for NG9-1-1, getting it into compliance with the Cal OES data model.
GeoComm is a proven California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS) contractor (3-06-70-2372A), having assisted many agencies in CA for more than a decade, and has the services, as well as software, available for assessing, improving, and maintaining your GIS data for NG9-1-1.

GeoComm Announces Early Release Program for New Vertical Location Service Aimed at Making 9-1-1 Caller Z-Axis Positioning Actionable
GeoComm is leading the way into the vertical frontier of Public Safety Location Intelligence® with the release of a new product, GeoComm Vertical Location Services. This offering provides the missing link to making the z-axis actionable during 9-1-1 calls by converting raw positioning measurements from 9-1-1 callers’ cell phones into dispatchable locations including building name, street address, height above the ground, and probable floor level, while also generating a 3D visualization of the caller’s location inside a building.
For many years the focus for Public Safety Grade GIS has been on site structure address points, road centerlines, service boundaries, and Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) boundaries for routing 9-1-1 calls in a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) systems. As we progress towards full NG9-1-1 implementations, having indoor context about the location of calls within indoor spaces will be critical for telecommunicators and first on scene responders. High quality, actionable indoor maps that are floor aware for visualization inside buildings for emergency response is the next frontier for Public Safety Grade GIS.
GeoComm, provider of Public Safety Location Intelligence®, is excited to celebrate an important milestone - twenty-five years as a partner in the Esri Partner Network (EPN). Esri is the global leader in geographic information systems (GIS) and location intelligence. GeoComm’s long-term Esri partnership demonstrates a commitment to designing, developing, and leveraging Esri technology for optimized use in the public safety market.
