Transitional GIS Challenges of NG9-1-1: Tabular MSAG to GeoMSAG Conversion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

NG911 brings many new GIS data management considerations for coalescing, validating and utilizing data from multiple sources for location validation & geospatial call routing. This session will cover data management suggestions & best practices to ensure that Public Safety/Emergency 911 Call Centers’ data is ready for the transition. Multiple agencies have converted from tabular Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) to a GIS-based MSAG or “GeoMSAG” for geospatial based validation & call routing. Learn how creating and maintaining the “GeoMSAG” will result in operational efficiency gains as 911 address validation is driven by GIS data, eliminating redundancy & streamlining 911 data management.
