Across the country, those involved with 9-1-1 and GIS are maneuvering through the process of planning for a NG9-1-1 implementation. One component of the next system involves the mission critical role that GIS will have in NG9-1-1. The webinar showed attendees why consistent GIS data across a jurisdiction, region, or state will be the key to a successful NG9-1-1 system, and the steps you should take to assess your NG9-1-1 GIS readiness. Additional webinar key points included:
- Importance of educating stakeholders
- Developing standards (locally, at the regional or state level)
- Reviewing GIS data schemas
- Analysis of local GIS data that will feed into the overall system
GIS data integrity and readiness for 9-1-1 systems, especially NG9-1-1 systems, is our focus, and this webinar is your opportunity to learn from GeoComm project team members and determine how to get started.
