Track: Computer-Aided Dispatch and 911
Authors: Susan Seet, Jessica Beierman
NG9-1-1 systems are fueled by GIS data. This mission critical data is required for location validation and geospatial routing of live 9-1-1 calls in a NG9-1-1 system, and is maintained and provisioned by the Spatial Information Function (SIF). This session will provide an overview of one implementation of a SIF in Texas including discussion of the agency’s needs and project work such as data gathering, quality assurance/quality control, reporting, coalescing, and provisioning of data.
