GeoComm Selected by the State of Arkansas to Complete Next Generation 9-1-1 Statewide GIS Data Gap Analysis Project
GeoComm is pleased to announce its selection by the State of Arkansas to complete a Statewide GIS Data Gap Analysis Project aimed at empowering them for a future Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) implementation.
As the State of Arkansas transitions to a Next Generation 9-1-1(NG9-1-1) environment, the need for a robust GIS environment at local, regional, and statewide agencies dramatically increases. The state recognized the first step in their NG9-1-1 transition was to complete a Statewide GIS Data Gap Analysis.
This project will lay the groundwork for Arkansas’ transition to a NG9-1-1 environment by assessing the current GIS data that will be utilized statewide. After the analysis is complete, a report outlining recommended next steps for Arkansas’ NG9-1-1 GIS program will be provided to them.
“As we take the first steps toward our transition to Next Generation 9-1-1, we are extremely pleased to be working with GeoComm on refining and improving our state’s geospatial data. Their vast experience, knowledge, and success helping multiple other states across the nation complete this process made us confident that they could help us achieve success,” Shelby Johnson, State of Arkansas Geographic Information Officer.
“We are excited add the State of Arkansas to our growing number of states trusting GeoComm as their NG9-1-1 GIS partner of choice, which marks GeoComm’s fifteenth statewide NG9-1-1 GIS project. We are honored to work with them on this first step in their NG9-1-1 transition and are confident the information provided to them throughout the project will provide them with a clear path for achieving an accurate and up-to-date statewide GIS dataset,” Greg Spadorcio, Vice President of Sales.
This project, which has a short turnaround time, was kicked off in October 2020 and expected to be completed in April 2021. To learn more about our NG9-1-1 project footprint visit https://www.geo-comm.com/numbers/
