The Greater Harris County 911 Emergency Network (GHC 911) is deploying GIS technology to meet the public safety needs for locatio-based services. These services include wireless 911 calls, enhanced automatic crash notification, automatic vehicle location, and others. GIS technologies are also being used for telephone-based early warning systems and improving emergency response. GHC 911, along with more than 100 other public safety agencies within the greater Houston Texas area, is developing the standards and spatially accurate basemaps required for these technologies. Come see how cooperation is lowering cost and improving public safety needs, while embracing location-based technologies and services.
