    Free Webinar: GIS Considerations for Next Generation 9-1-1

    Tuesday, June 9 | 3PM Eastern (live) or On-Demand
    Sponsored by Intrado

    Raymond Horner, GIS Operations, Sr. Technical Project Manager - Intrado

    Free! Click here to register!

    Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) will bring many changes to 9-1-1, and GIS data is fundamental to the successful transition and implementation of these systems. The transition from tabular call routing to geospatial call routing will impact data management processes, considerations and personnel.

    This webinar will detail the specific GIS functional elements related to NENA i3 including the Spatial Information Function (SIF), Location Validation Function (LVF) and Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF) and will also focus on GIS data management practices in transition to NG9-1-1. Topics include:

    • Essential 9-1-1 GIS terminology
    • Functional Elements within a NG9-1-1 System
    • Planning the transition to geospatial call routing
    • Data sharing considerations


    Can't attend on the 9th? Register now and you will receive access to the on-demand webinar archive.
