The Future is HERE!

Is your data good enough for 9-1-1? Can your GIS data meet the needs of today and tomorrow? What do you need to do to ensure that your data meets the high degree of accuracy necessary for efficient and effective emergency response? Take this course and move beyond the basic theory of GIS with in-depth instruction in areas relevant to PSAP operations and NG9-1-1(?) data preparation.

Attendees will become versed in the methods, standards, and best practices needed to create and maintain highly accurate GIS data for current and future 9-1-1 systems. Further, participants will explore critical topics such as relevant NENA standards, mapping accuracy, data synchronization issues, verification of wireless Phase I & II information, and funding and revenue concerns.
