Creating a Geoprocessing Model for Maui’s E911 By Shanoa Miller Internship: Akimeka LLC Mentor: Maria Nieves Advisor: Tony Ramirez
Outline Enhanced 911 (E911) Akimeka’s Role Project Goal Model Structure Final Results Next Steps Civil Defense Mini Project Final Facts about E911
60% of 911 calls are from wireless phones Old 911 system could not “map” wireless calls Geographical Information System-based program Uses GIS information to locate wireless 911 calls Enhanced 911
What is GIS? Geographical Information Systems (GIS): A system of hardware and software used for storage, retrieval, mapping, and analysis of geographic data.

Akimeka’s Role Update GIS layers in 911 database for Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai Counties Offer solutions and troubleshooting for the 911 center
Akimeka’s Role 911 Centers need frequent updates Maui County does not have the man power to create GIS layers Maui County has not been able to update new Subdivision Parcels since 2006 Akimeka must find other solutions
Project Goal Create a Geoprocessing Model in ArcGIS, that will automatically update existing data layers in the 911 database Geoprocessing is a GIS operation that manipulates and/or creates GIS data
Paper Blueprint of Waiolani Subdivision
Waiolani Subdivision in CAD – GIS form

Next Steps for Parcel Updates
Geographical Benchmark: A surveyor's mark made on a stationary object of previously determined position and elevation and used as a reference point in tidal observations and surveys.
Next Steps for Parcel Updates
Civil Defense Mini Project Create a Database and Map for the Hawaii Civil Defense
Civil Defense Map Features
Wireless 911 Fact Maui County was the first county in Hawaii to implement this system. There are 3,142 Counties in the United States, but fewer than 400 currently have the capabilities the County of Maui possesses today.
