Session Overview

Canada’s transition to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) includes the implementation of a geo-routing call process that leverages the location of the caller and Public Safety Grade GIS data to determine the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to which to send the call and device location. 

With approximately 250 PSAPs across the country, this geo-routing call process will require the standardization, validation, and seamless aggregation of over 14,000 GIS data layers across Canada.  

Join our experts and special guests to learn about the GIS data layers that are utilized for NG9-1-1, what it takes to be a GIS data aggregator, and how organizations like the Integrated Cadastral Information (ICI) Society in British Columbia are working to help develop best practices for GIS data aggregation and validation.

Key Points

  • Learn about the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) GIS data standards and the required GIS layers for NG9-1-1. 
  • Explore the role of a NG9-1-1 GIS data aggregator. 
  • Learn about the ICI Society of BC aggregator proof of concept project. 

Intended Audience

This webinar is designed for local, regional, and provincial governments, PSAP and public safety personnel, and industry professionals in GIS data provisioning.
