Developing and Implementing Effective GIS Standards for a County PSAP.
Track: Computer-Aided Dispatch and 911
Authors: Keith Dailey, Lucas Goff
Cowley County is making advances towards a consolidated PSAP dispatch center for emergency communications. We are beginning to implement Next Gen 911 software and hardware. We have begun executing data standards through topology rules for our spatial and tabular data that are greatly enhancing the accuracy of our dispatch software. Our ultimate goal is to ensure proper spatial location of emergency notifications at any location within our county and from any communication means possible.
