Mapping the Future of NG9-1-1
As agencies determine the steps necessary to migrate their 9-1-1 communications systems to the NENA i3 Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) model there are many items to consider and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) requirements for public safety can be overwhelming. In NG9-1-1 systems, accurate GIS is a requirement since the GIS data will be routing calls to the correct PSAP based on geography. Learn more about the role of GIS in NG9-1-1 with these opportunities at the National NENA Conference being held June 16-19, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
GIS Track ~ Next Generation 9-1-1 GIS: Getting Started
Monday, June 17, 2013 ~ 1:30-2:30 p.m.
With the advent of NG9-1-1 call routing and location technologies dependent on local GIS data, even more responsibility for timely and accurate spatial data will fall upon local governments. This interactive session and case study examines the processes and local accountability that will be required in the future and participants will discuss developing methodologies and processes for reporting and improving the accuracy of the GIS data, street centerline, and MSAG synchronicity.
GIS Track ~ Lessons Learned: Statewide Initiatives to Prepare GIS for NG9-1-1
Monday, June 17, 2013 ~ 2:45-3:45 p.m.
This session examines two states, Michigan and North Dakota, that have taken significant steps to prepare their GIS data for NG9-1-1 systems. This presentation provides an overview of each project, including: the development of GIS data, improvements to GIS road centerline accuracy, project obstacles, community outreach initiatives, data sharing agreements, and GIS repository functions.
GIS Track ~ Synchronizing Through GIS, MSAG, and ALI Data for NG9-1-1
Monday, June 17, 2013 ~ 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Synchronization of GIS data with your MSAG and ALI is the first step in preparing for NG9-1 -1 and meeting 9-1-1’s current needs. Cooperation between addressing authorities, GIS experts, and database management professionals is necessary for success. This session covers both the human and technology sides in this process and reviews several current standards necessary for successful data synchronization.
GIS Track ~ Addressing Military Installations
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 ~ 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Following the shooting at Fort Hood, a Department of Defense directive was issued requiring all military installations become E9-1-1 compliant by 2014. A project team was formed to conduct GIS data, MSAG, and ALI development at fifteen Marine Corps installations throughout the US. This presentation covers unique and challenging aspects to data development and applying an addressing scheme to an established military installation.
We look forward to visiting with you at NENA. We’re at booth 423. Stop by to discuss the latest industry developments with GIS for Public Safety, particularly for NG9-1-1. Also, we’ll be demoing GeoLynx Server. GeoLynx Server, which integrates with any Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) or Call Processing Equipment (CPE), combines detailed GIS base maps with real-time emergency call handling CAD and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL). GeoLynx Server seamlessly connects Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), responding agencies, and field responders. This NG9-1-1 tool will help you respond, connect, track, and discover additional location information about emergency incidents.
See you in Charlotte!
