NG9-1-1 is a game changer for the 9-1-1 community because it utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to deliver every 9-1-1 call – mobile, VoIP, and landline alike – to 9-1-1 communication centers according to a National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) report published in December 2020. Game changers can be profound and disruptive while also producing positive effects. Utilization of GIS in the core of the 9-1-1 system is a game changer. The integrity and accuracy of GIS data is elevated to an entirely new level to meet the standards and recommendations for NG9-1-1 call routing.
