GeoComm eBook Focuses on Assessing GIS Data for NG911

August 21, 2015  - By 0 Comments

GeoComm has released an ebook focusing on assessing GIS data for an NG911 system (next-generation 911). In an NG911 system, GIS data development, accuracy, and maintenance are vital, and GeoComm approaches NG911 readiness in three steps: assess, improve and maintain.

The ebook, Key Steps for Assessing Mission Critical Data for 9-1-1, focuses on the assess step.

GeoComm approaches GIS data assessment by first identifying the current state of the reader’s GIS Data. NG911 GIS assessment can be completed by:

  • Educating stakeholders
  • Developing standards
  • Reviewing and analyzing GIS data

In addition to outlining the tasks for each of these three steps, the eBook includes an example of how the State of Iowa approached its NG911 GIS data assessment.

“Today is the day to begin preparing GIS data for its key role in a successful NG911 system.  Whether you are tackling your GIS data assessment yourself, working with outside jurisdictions, or partner with a vendor; this eBook provides a valuable guide to accomplish your GIS data assessment,” GeoComm said in a statement.
