NG9-1-1 and the GIS Workflow
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 1:00 - 5:00 PM

Kathrine Cargo, ENP, GISP, Orleans Parish Communication District, New Orleans, LA 

Description: This URISA Certified 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 9-1-1 system, GIS is the core component in determining how a 9-1-1 call is routed to the correct public safety answering point (PSAP).

This technology shift will have profound impacts on local data 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 9-1-1 terminology or needs.  This workshop is intended to provide an overview of next generation 9-1-1, GIS’ role in such a system, the implications on local workflows, and to illustrate common pain points and sources of errors in local GIS datasets.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Become familiar with basic next generation 9-1-1 terminology and concepts
  2. Recognize GIS’ role in a fully operational next generation 9-1-1 system
  3. Understand the implications on local GIS workflows to meet the demands of a next generation 9-1-1 system
  4. Begin to understand immediate steps that can be taken in preparing GIS assets for next generation 9-1-1
Intended Audience: GIS Managers, Emergency Management and Public Safety professionals.
Requirements: None

Cost: One full-day or half-day workshop is included with full conference registration; $195 if only attending a workshop or adding a second half-day workshop
