Improving Location Accuracy for Next Generation 9-1-1

For more than 40 years, the public has relied on emergency phone numbers to summon police, fire, or medical help during emergencies. Increased use of mobile devices requires more flexible, resilient, and scalable ways to respond to the public.

Esri can help with next generation (NG) 9-1-1, computer-aided dispatch, and records management systems, from developing geographic databases to managing large volumes of data and sharing situational awareness across multiple jurisdictions—on any device.

"We are not where we need to be on location accuracy for wireless 9-1-1 calls. This puts American lives at risk."

Rear Admiral (ret.) David Simpson, Chief of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau
