The City of North Platte/Lincoln County chose GeoComm in 2004 to complete GIS base map development services and dispatch mapping software implementation. The GIS map data layers developed continue to be maintained by GeoComm today. Now, almost twenty years later, North Platte remains a GeoComm customer, and we continue to perform ongoing GIS data maintenance and quality control in support of NG9-1-1.


Since North Platte’s first project, GeoComm has continued to assist the city in advancing their public safety systems and dispatcher tools by adding further public safety software to enhance emergency response including automatic vehicle location (AVL) and mobile responder mapping capabilities. Most recently, GeoComm supported the city’s transition to NG9-1-1 and a new GIS centric computer aided dispatch (CAD) system.
