Gem County, Idaho Partners with GeoComm for 9-1-1 Address Point Field Verification Project

St. Cloud, MN - GeoComm is pleased to announce Gem County, Idaho selected GeoComm to provide 9-1-1 map data development services. This project includes countywide address point field verification, updating several of Gem County’s GIS data layers, and installing public safety mapping capabilities in the 9-1-1 call center and emergency response vehicles.

GeoComm began the field verification portion of the project in February 2014 when GIS Specialists drove all of the public roads in Gem County to verify the road names and addresses. Following the February field verification, GeoComm utilized the gathered data to update geographically correct map data layers for use in the 9-1-1 dispatch center and for emergency response. Upon completion of the GIS map data layers, GeoLynx Desktop and GeoLynx Mobile will be installed in July 2014. GeoLynx Desktop, an emergency dispatch GIS public safety software will be implemented in the county’s 9-1-1 dispatch center and GeoLynx Mobile MDC Edition, an in-vehicle mapping and navigation system, will be installed in the emergency response vehicles.
