Does your GIS allow you to get the right information to the right people at the right time? If not, you’ll learn how at this must-see session, presented by Marc Berryman, ENP. Your GIS-–and how you create, use, maintain and share it-–holds the key to 9-1-1 accuracy. Learn how your point-based, field verified address database can withstand the heightened requirements of Next Generation 9-1-1 technology, supporting advanced mapping, routing and tracking functionality. IP-based incident command applications and three-dimensional mobile routing using your local GIS only work if your GIS data is accurate. Learn about the new norms of address validation and emergency routing databases, plus the proper way to synchronize and maintain changes in emergency service providers, ESZs, roads and sites. As the industry looks forward to this new set of standards to maximize interoperability, the time to prepare is running out. Next Generation 9-1-1 is now. Is your GIS ready?
