Arkansas Selects GeoComm for NG 9-1-1 GIS Data Gap Analysis
Monday, November 16, 2020 | Comments

Arkansas selected GeoComm to complete a statewide geographic information system (GIS) data gap analysis project aimed at empowering the state for a future next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) implementation.

As Arkansas transitions to an NG 9-1-1 environment, the need for a robust GIS environment at local, regional and statewide agencies dramatically increases. The state recognized the first step in its NG 9-1-1 transition was to complete a statewide GIS data gap analysis.

“As we take the first steps toward our transition to next generation 9-1-1, we are extremely pleased to be working with GeoComm on refining and improving our state’s geospatial data,” said Shelby Johnson, Arkansas’ geographic information officer. “Their vast experience, knowledge and success helping multiple other states across the nation complete this process made us confident that they could help us achieve success.”

This project will lay the groundwork for Arkansas’ transition to a NG 9-1-1 environment by assessing the current GIS data that will be utilized statewide. After the analysis is complete, a report outlining recommended next steps for Arkansas’ NG 9-1-1 GIS program will be provided to them.

“We are excited to add the state of Arkansas to our growing number of states trusting GeoComm as their NG 9-1-1 GIS partner of choice, which marks GeoComm’s fifteenth statewide NG9-1-1 GIS project,” said Greg Spadorcio, vice president of sales for GeoComm. “We are honored to work with them on this first step in their NG 9-1-1 transition and are confident the information provided to them throughout the project will provide them with a clear path for achieving an accurate and up-to-date statewide GIS dataset.”

This project, which has a short turnaround time, was kicked off in October 2020 and is expected to be completed in April 2021.
