GeoComm to Help Missouri County Improve GIS Data
Tuesday, December 01, 2020 | Comments

Texas County, Missouri, selected GeoComm to complete a geographic information systems (GIS) data improvement project. GeoComm will partner with Texas County to improve its GIS data, achieving public-safety-grade GIS levels to indicate it is ready to properly operate in a next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) environment.

Texas County is the largest land mass county in Missouri, covering almost 1,200 square miles. Once the GIS data has been improved, Texas County officials will use GeoComm Maintainer to complete its ongoing GIS data maintenance. GeoComm Maintainer is an NG 9-1-1 GIS addressing tool that empowers uses to achieve high levels of accuracy and synchronization of your geospatial 9-1-1 data.

Texas County will also use the newly improved GIS data in its GeoComm Dispatch Map map-based decision support application. GeoComm Dispatch Map leverages the latest RapidSOS technology and displays indoor maps.

A portion of the funding for this project is being provided through the state of Missouri’s allocation of federal NG 9-1-1 grant funds. Texas County is one of just 18 agencies in Missouri that were awarded funds through this program.

This GIS data improvement project will be completed at the same time the state of Missouri is doing a statewide NG9-1-1 GIS Consulting project aimed at driving its statewide GIS readiness for NG9-1-1. This statewide project, which GeoComm is also assisting with, includes the development of NG9-1-1 GIS standards and then a detailed analysis and assessment of each counties GIS data to determine its compliance with those newly established standards.
