Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information System ("GIS")
GIS capabilities are an essential component of NG911 and improving public safety communications. Implementing and maintaining GIS systems can be challenging because it requires capturing expansive geographic information—from a street intersection in a rural town to aerial images of mountainous terrain—and continually updating systems to capture new building structures.
Working in partnership with The State 911 Program, The Arizona Geographic Information Council ("AGIC") has created an informational hub page that contains relevant information for education and outreach. It is additionally where you can find AZGEO which acts as a statewide data repository for the required GIS datasets for NG911 implementation.
