Useful Tool for 9-1-1 Telecommunicators

Due to recent FCC rules and regulatory enforcement actions, wireless carriers are now providing z-axis elevation information, when available, for 9-1-1 calls from cell phones. Z-axis location may be provided as raw Height Above Ellipsoid (HAE) measurements, which must be converted by PSAP systems into actionable dispatchable locations.

GeoComm’s Vertical Location Services provide useful tools to 9-1-1 PSAPs for converting raw position measurements including z-axis elevation data into dispatchable locations including building names, street addresses, and floor levels.


How can you make conversions more accurate for buildings in your area?

You can increase the accuracy and precision of XYZ translation to dispatchable addresses with sub-address elements by providing specially attributed building footprints for buildings in your jurisdiction. In some cases, your local GIS department may already have access to the information we need to make the translation service more accurate in your area. In other cases, you may be able to collect information about specific buildings in your jurisdiction that are of particular concern because they cover large complex indoor environments, are occupied by many people, and/or where a major in-building emergency could have significant impact on life, safety, and your community.
