GeoComm Selected by North Central Texas Council of Governments to Provide Web-Based 9-1-1 Dispatch Mapping

GeoComm and North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) have initiated a project to implement GeoLynx Server for 9-1-1 call mapping in 44 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.

NCTCOG selected GeoComm’s GeoLynx Server, an Esri ArcGIS for Server-based 9-1-1 call mapping system, to add comprehensive geospatial functionality to its existing NG9-1-1 infrastructure. GeoLynx Server will combine NCTCOG’s detailed Geographic Information System (GIS) base mapswith real-time emergency caller locations for 9-1-1 call takers at 44 PSAPs across the NCTCOG region. GeoLynx Server will provide 9-1-1 call takers and dispatchers Common Operating Picture (COP) for processing 9-1-1 calls from wireline, wireless, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communication devices.

“GeoComm, as well as numerous stakeholders in the NCTCOG region, are eager to deploy a comprehensive solution that provides new 9-1-1mapping functions to its existing NG infrastructure,” John Bryant, GeoComm President & CEO remarked. “The solution will offer unmatched NG9-1-1 GIS mapping capabilities for 9-1-1 call takers across the region. We are pleased to be working with NCTCOG and are looking forward to the project.”

NCTCOGanswers over 1,125,000 9-1-1 calls per year at 44 PSAPs in 15 different counties.  GeoLynx Server, powered by Esri ArcGIS for Server, will be running in 44 PSAPS across 15 different counties in the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) region.
