Every agency faces unique obstacles when trying to achieve accurate map data. Some common obstacles include: Experience: A need for a GIS services team with in-depth GIS knowledge, the needs of public safety agencies, and specific GIS requirements for NG9-1-1. GIS for Public Safety: While agencies may have staff in place they may lack specific expertise when it comes to public safety GIS needs. Expertise: The staff that maintains the GIS data may not have a full understanding of the current GIS national standards prescribed for public safety, current and emerging NG9-1-1 GIS data standards. Data Coordination: GIS datasets may require working with multi-jurisdictional boundaries where multiple agencies and regions work together to coordinate GIS data edge matching and boundary disputes. Cost Effectiveness: A jurisdiction may not have the time or training to maintain public safety GIS data and it can be costly to create a new fully staffed department with this capability. Value: An agency may not have the justification for full or part-time staffing. Size of Jurisdiction: Due to the size of the jurisdiction, the amount of data updates needed may be minimal and/or intermittent. GeoComm can help you overcome these obstacles. We have completed over 1,000 successful GIS projects nationwide and continuously evolve our services to meet public safety GIS needs. Our clients discover their projects are completed to their specifications, guaranteed.
