Building GIS Master Data to Support Next-Gen 911 Karen G. Mitchell GIS Specialist, NJ Office of GIS
9-1-1 is Changing E-911 NextGen 911 Graphics from K Liljequist
Soon, Suddenly, Address Data Will REALLY Matter In order for the ECRF to work, you have to get your LVF in place! (Translation: in NG9-1-1, for calls to get routed to the right call center, you have to have good locations for every address.) And by the way, as you wade into 911, get ready for the acronym storm.
(Partial!) Glossary MSAG: Master Street Address Guide ALI: Automatic Location Identification LIS: Location Information Server MPC: Mobile Position Center SIF: Spatial Information Function ECRF: Emergency Call Routing Function LVF: Location Validation Function
What GIS Will Need to Provide Accurate address locations Points preferable Ranges on road centerline as fallback State/County/Muni boundaries Service boundaries: PSAP, Fire, Police, EMS, etc.
NextGen in NJ: Big Picture OITs Office of Emergency Telecommunications Services coordinates both radio communications and 911 NG911 implementation requires specialized knowledge RFI issued a couple of years ago, still insufficient understanding to craft plan OETS plans to engage a consultant to lay out road map, craft RFP for implementation Initiative will definitely require support in legislature, but any talk of consolidation gets highly political (Translation: we GIS folks do have some time)
What To Start Doing Now Learn about how NG911 works Start forging relationships with 911 personnel Build first-cut data sets Enlist 911 personnel in data maintenance
Address Ranges/Road Centerlines Enhanced DOT centerlines will be foundation Web app for maintenance coming soon Authorized contributors at local level will be important sources Rapid refresh cycle to get changes into users hands quickly
Address Points OGIS has draft statewide points based on parcel centroids Pilot project with Essex and Monmouth to explore distributed editing Will likely add point editing to road app Ultimate goal is multiple points per address Standards development at national level
Multiple Points Per Address Parcel centroid (low-hanging fruit) Building centroid Building entries Driveway entry from road Sub-addresses Outbuildings Apartments, condos, office suites
National Efforts: Roads NSGIC proposed Transportation for the Nation, nationwide aggregation of locally-originated road centerlines USDOT adopted the idea, developed a strategic plan MAP-21 Act signed July 2012, includes requirements, funding mechanism for states to submit comprehensive centerline data NSGIC urging USDOT to include addresses, support for that from (FGDC) National Geospatial Advisory Council Data model not yet defined
National Efforts: Addresses Lots of people talking about addresses, dont yet have a clear direction or momentum Census Bureau working actively to come up with strategy to do addresses outside of Title 13. Not simple. URISA/FGDC standard exists for attributes NENA workgroup developing a standard for spatial data for structure points Very active work group in NSGIC
Summary As far as GIS data and maintenance processes to support NG911, we have a good base, a good direction, and a good idea of how to get there, but lots of details still to work out. Karen Mitchell for Andy Rowan, Director, NJ Office of GIS
