GIS Tabular MSAG to GeoMSAG Conversion for NG9-1-1
Abstract: NG911 brings many new GIS data management considerations for coalescing, validating and utilizing data from multiple sources for location validation and geospatial call routing. This session will cover data management suggestions and best practices to ensure that Public Safety/Emergency 911 Call Centers’ data is ready for the transition. Multiple agencies have converted from tabular Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) to a GIS-based MSAG or “GeoMSAG” for geospatial based validation and call routing. Learn how creating and maintaining the “GeoMSAG” will result in operational efficiency gains as 911 address validation is driven by GIS data, eliminating redundancy and streamlining 911 data management.
