GIS AND NG9-1-1
Teamwork makes the Dream Work
The 9-1-1 GIS Team
Across the nation many 9-1-1 authorities at the local, regional, and state levels are investing significant resources into their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for mission critical 9-1-1 use. The 9-1-1 authorities often rely on local government GIS departments that service a variety of consumers of GIS data. Due to this diverse focus and use of GIS, the data needs to be prepared to meet public safety standards and requirements.
Ultimately, the GIS and 9-1-1 teams must work together. What’s a starting point for GIS and 9-1-1 collaboration? Educating all involved about how GIS is utilized in current 9-1-1 systems and how GIS will be used in future Next Generation (NG9-1-1) systems.by | February 1, 2019
