The Next Generation 9-1-1 Engine and the GIS Fuel that Feeds It
Track: Emergency Call Taking and Dispatch E911
Authors: Richard Kelly, Bob Long, Bob Long
GIS data is the center of all future, or ‘Next Generation’, 9-1-1 operations and requires in depth analysis and subsequent updating before use in a live system. This session will review why this data is so critical in the new reality of geospatial call routing as well as the consequences of not having good GIS data and maintenance practices in place. Real world examples of what is found in GIS data being readied for NG9-1-1 will be provided, as well as approaches to issue resolution.
