Got GIS questions? We have answers! Join us as we unpack the who, what, when, where, why, and how of GIS for NG9-1-1: Who uses the GIS data? What data is used? When and where is it used? Why is it important? And how does it work? Don’t forget to bring your questions, as we’ll be helping you unpack those, too!
- Keeping Address Points & Other GIS Data NG-Ready on Tuesday, June 18th
The boxes are checked: Your data meets the NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model standard and you’ve synchronized your MSAG and ALI to your GIS… So, you’re done, right? Not so fast! This session covers how to maintain your data, check for quality, and more. Further discussion focuses specifically on site structure and address point importance, use history, role in NG9-1-1, and relationship to other data.
