National NENA Conference

Mapping the Future of NG9-1-1
It is the new reality for 9-1-1 that GIS will play a mission critical role in future systems.  In an NG9-1-1 system, GIS will be the mission critical database utilized for location validation and call routing, replacing traditional tabular Master Street Address Guides (MSAG). GeoComm is equipped to help you in planning and preparing your GIS data for a NG9-1-1 environment.  Learn more about the role of GIS in NG9-1-1 with these opportunities at the National NENA Conference being held June 11-15, 2016 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Conference Presentations:
Data Management & Utilization Track ~ A Closer Look at ECRF/LVF Implementations
Monday, June 13, 2016 ~ 2:45-4:00 p.m.
Across the United States, i3-compliant networks and functional elements are being deployed. One of those functional elements is the ECRF/LVF. In this discussion, we’ll highlight early deployments that route calls live in an ESInet, share lessons learned from the installation and maintenance of these systems, and identify what a 9-1-1 professional can expect during implementation.

GIS Track~ Key Steps to Maintaining Mission Critical Data
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 ~ 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.
In an NG9-1-1 system, it is important to determine how to maintain and manage the ongoing GIS data updates, as well as who will be responsible for those tasks. This session discusses the options for managing and monitoring GIS data and the importance of database synchronization, standard processes, and aggregating and coalescing GIS data from multiple authoritative sources.

GIS Track ~ The Next Frontier for GIS: Indoors
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 ~ 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Enhanced location accuracy and increased public expectations are redefining what constitutes an acceptable “dispatchable” location. Yet, indoor spaces are largely unmapped, and indoor location is just becoming available in the PSAP environment. This session shares indoor location test results at St. Cloud State University and explores what indoor mapping may look like in the PSAP of the future.

Booth Highlights:
We look forward to visiting with you at NENA. We’re at booth 420. 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.
