Any discussion about the next frontier in emergency response and the importance of 9-1-1 in homeland security must include the critical role of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). NENA is the leader in development of standards related to GIS in Enhanced 9-1-1 and the
integration of GIS and public safety.
Come to this Critical Issues Forum to learn more about current issues as well as future trends involving GIS, E9-1-1 and homeland security. You will hear from leaders of NENAs Technical and Operations Committees who have developed recommended standards for GIS systems and their maintenance. You will also hear from federal, state and regional government agencies, as well as GIS vendors who provide services to the public safety community
