GIS has been used in 9-1-1 for years to help call takers locate 9-1-1 callers. In Next Generation 9-1-1, GIS becomes a core component of the 9-1-1 system and will be used for all location validation, call routing and mapping. As a result, it is essential that GIS data be complete, accurate, and up-to-date before being used in a NG9-1-1 system. How will this change impact the way GIS data are maintained at the local level? How will different counties with varying GIS resources meet the needs of NG9-1-1? This panel, representing counties big and small, will discuss these questions and more, with the goal of providing attendees an understand of what will be needed to maintain GIS for NG9-1-1 and some different approaches to do so.
