2018 National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Conference

Visit Us At NENA Booth 423 To Learn Why Quality GIS Is Your Path To Stardom

Accurate GIS data is important throughout 9-1-1 emergency response!  Stop by our booth to learn how we can help with your unique GIS needs and how you can make your jurisdiction a star by utilizing our GIS data management applications to create accurate public safety GIS data.  These applications empower you to:

  • Supercharge your GIS data validation process utilizing GeoComm GIS Data Hub. This GIS data management solution provides GIS data insights to help 9-1-1 authorities achieve public safety grade GIS.  GIS Data Hub validates and reports on GIS data quality for 9-1-1, Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) and Computer Aided Dispatch Mapping (CAD).
  • Tackle common GIS obstacles with our proven Assess, Improve, and Maintain process. This process is an effective and streamlined approach for understanding GIS data requirements for NG9-1-1 and tackling your GIS data issues.
  • Decrease the time and effort needed to build and maintain high quality GIS data for public safety use through GeoComm Maintainer ArcGIS Desktop. This GIS data management tool enables efficient updates to GIS data layers, such as road centerline layers, address point layers, Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) by utilizing automated tools designed specifically for developing and maintaining GIS data.

In our booth you can also learn more about the importance of indoor location accuracy in 9-1-1 emergency response.  As more and more people rely on mobile phones as their primary phone service the need for mobile and indoor location accuracy is increasingly important.  GeoComm is at the forefront of indoor mapping.  Our mapping applications address this challenge, aiding in making 9-1-1 indoor caller location a reality.

Four NENA Conference Presentations That Will Inspire Your Jurisdiction To Be A Star

In addition to our many booth activities, multiple GeoComm team members will be presenting at several different breakout sessions.  These presentations are designed to help you stay ahead of the game and gain a professional edge over your peers.

John Brosowsky will be co-presenting with RapidSOS on Monday, June 18 at 3:45 p.m.  This presentation titled Strategies to Improve 9-1-1 Routing for Wireless Callers will discuss how calls can be routed precisely using modern smartphone location services on an NG9-1-1 network using data from the RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse and the GIS-based Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF).

John Brosowsky will also be co-presenting on Monday, June 18 at 5:00 p.m. at a session titled Maine Case Study: The Value of Geo-enabled Call Transfers.   During this session attendees will hear about the process the State of Maine went through when moving from a legacy system to an NG9-1-1 system as well as the operational benefits of geo-enabled selective transfer in an NG9-1-1 system using an ECRF.

Deb Rozeboom will be one of the five panelists presenting on Basics for 9-1-1 System Success on Tuesday, June 19 at 1:30 p.m. The informative session will answer queries like the “why” behind the NG9-1-1 standards, the significance of a 98% match rate, the Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) in today’s 9-1-1 environment, and what in the world CLDXF means.

Jessica Frye will also be part of a five member team on Wednesday, June 20 at 3:00 p.m. presenting on the Key Components of a State NG9-1-1 GIS Data Provisioning Plan.   During this session, panelists will discuss the preparation multiple states went through for making the transition to and successfully implementing an ESInet with i3 services.
