GIS: The 'Hero' for Next Generation 911

Current 911 technology is based on principles developed in the 1960’s. The National Emergency Number Association’s i3 solution (popularly referenced as "Next Generation 911") is based on implementing a robust IP-based network and will utilize GIS data layers and technologies to manage call routing. This reliance led one panelist at a national meeting to proclaim, "...GIS will become the 'hero' in the next-generation 911 world..."

The NC 911 Board's Next Generation 911 Committee is responsible for developing the state's i3 implementation strategy and working with public safety answering points (PSAP's) to make this improvement to public safety a reality. This session will provide background information on i3, the importance of GIS data and technologies, and next steps for improving data layer quality and integration.
