Join us for the first of two workshops offered as part of the Cumberland Chapter of URISA Annual Meeting 2017!
Workshop 1: NextGEN911 Concepts and GIS Implementation:
This workshop will provide an overall tutorial about Next Generation 911 (NextGEN911) -- its origin, objectives, the role of government and professional associations and its reliance on digital communications. It will explain how NextGEN911 differs from E911 and its impact on computer-aided dispatch operations. A major part of this workshop will focus on GIS data implications and requirements for NextGEN911 support and typical steps for GIS data enhancement and formatting for NextGEN911.
