State of North Carolina Selects GeoComm
GeoComm is excited to announce being selected by the North Carolina 911 Board for a Next Generation 9-1-1 GIS Project, aimed at preparing the state for a NG9-1-1 system implementation.
As part of the project, GeoComm will complete a statewide GIS educational campaign aimed at helping the local agencies understand the goals of the statewide NG9-1-1 project, the processes that will be completed throughout the project, and the overall importance of the GIS data assessment phase.
In addition, GeoComm will be completing an GIS data assessment of each individual county’s GIS data to determine its readiness for a NG9-1-1 system. The GIS data assessment will analyze their existing GIS data schema, help them understand the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) NG9-1-1 GIS data model standards, and recommend GIS data improvement items for achieving public safety grade GIS data.
All of the participating North Carolina counties will be onboarded to GeoComm GIS Data Hub for up to daily NG9-1-1 GIS data validation and aggregation of the data into a statewide dataset. Quality control check processing will also be completed providing data quality reports to each of the participating counties. In addition, GeoComm GIS Data Hub will transform the various datasets into a common, usable schema for provisioning into the State’s NG9-1-1 system.
North Carolina joins a growing number of states entrusting GeoComm as their 9-1-1 GIS partner of choice to meet the demands of Next Generation 9-1-1.
