Texas County Missouri Selects GeoComm for GIS Data Improvement Project
GeoComm is honored to be selected by Texas County, Missouri, the largest land mass county in Missouri, covering almost 1200 square miles, to complete a GIS Data Improvement project. GeoComm will partner with Texas County to improve their GIS data, achieving public safety grade GIS levels indicating it is ready to properly operate in a NG9-1-1 environment.
Once the GIS data has been improved, Texas County officials will utilize GeoComm Maintainer to complete their ongoing GIS data maintenance. GeoComm Maintainer is an NG9-1-1 GIS addressing tool that empowers uses to achieve high levels of accuracy and synchronization of your geospatial 9-1-1 data.
A portion of the funding for this project is being provided through the State of Missouri allocation of Federal NG911 Grant funds. Texas County is one of just 18 agencies in Missouri that were awarded funds through this program.
This GIS data improvement project will be completed at the same time the State of Missouri is doing a statewide NG9-1-1 GIS Consulting project aimed at driving their statewide GIS readiness for NG9-1-1. This statewide project, which GeoComm is also assisting with, includes the development of NG9-1-1 GIS standards and then a detailed analysis and assessment of each counties GIS data to determine its compliance with those newly established standards.
