NG9-1-1 and the GIS Workflow  (1/2 day afternoon workshop)  
Monday, October 19, 2015,1:00 - 5:00PM
Instructors: Sandi Stroud

Description: This workshop is aimed at the GIS professional who is currently supporting or may support their emergency communications division in the future. In a fully operational next generation 911 system, GIS is the core component in determining how a 911 call is routed to the correct public safety answering point (PSAP). This will have profound impacts on local maintenance workflows, local data access, and data fidelity.   We recognize there is a sincere lack of education available aimed at the GIS professional who may not be as versed with the 911 terminology or needs.  This workshop is intended to provide an overview of next generation 911, GIS’ role in such a system, the implications on local workflows, and illustrate common pain points and sources of errors in local GIS datasets.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Become familiar with basic next generation 911 terminology and concepts
  2. Recognize GIS’ role in a fully operational next generation 911 system
  3. Understand the implications on local GIS workflows to meet the demands of a next generation 911 system
  4. Begin to understand immediate steps that can be taken in preparing GIS assets for Next Generation 911

Intended Audience: GIS Managers, Emergency Management and Public Safety professionals.

Requirements: None

Cost: Free with conference registration; $95 for workshop only
