Improve GIS Data
How will you prepare GIS data for its critical role?
The second step to NG9-1-1 GIS data readiness is to improve your GIS data based on the assessment. Once you know the status of your readiness and recommendations have been made; you can develop a plan to improve your GIS data for its mission critical role in an NG9-1-1 system. Improvement may include GIS data cleanup or remediation and enhancing your GIS data with additional layers or attributes for a NG9-1-1 system.
GeoComm has a systematic process in place that can assist you in improving your data. Using your GIS assessment recommendations, NENA standards, and industry best practices as our guide, our team of highly experience GIS public safety experts work to deliver the highest quality GIS map data based on your customized data improvement plan. Implementing a process that will deliver GIS data integrity through comprehensive Quality Control checks, we serve as an extension of your project team delivering proven experience, GIS problem solving, and applying standard practices for improving or enhancing GIS data for public safety. We work to keep the data cleanup and remediation, data development, and GIS synchronization process simple.
Numerous GIS map data layers can be developed and integrated into your public safety GIS map dataset, however the following key map layers are needed for 9-1-1:
- Road Centerlines
- Address Points
- PSAP Service Area Boundaries
- Other Service Area Boundaries such as law, fire, medical, coast guard, etc.
- Community Boundaries
By working with GeoComm to improve your GIS data, you will receive a quality GIS dataset which can use for:
- Identifying locations of 9-1-1 callers
- Routing calls based on geography to the proper responding PSAP
- Generating routes to emergency situations
- Discovering additional information about a location
