Over the last three years, Geodata Services has assisted 20 rural counties in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming to review and assess required and recommended GIS layers for Next Generation 911(NG 911), and assist local staff and elected officials in preparing their data for NG911. This presentation will present lessons learned and specific case study examples from four separate MLIA grants focusing on preparing NG 911 GIS in rural counties. We will highlight how local GIS staff, DES coordinators and public safety officials have leveraged ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro, Modelbuilder, and NENA data models. We will highlight specific real world examples where local GIS and public safety staff assisted or conducted their local efforts, worked with their 911 contractors and collaborated with neighboring jurisdictions.
