Intermediate GIS Concepts for NextGen 911

(3 Day class)  Feb 17-19, 2021

$750  Virtual Course

Registration Deadline:  Monday, Feb 8, 2021


NextGen 9-1-1 necessitates a clean and complete GIS database of address points, ESN zone polygons, municipal boundaries, fire districts, and all other datasets relevant to emergency response. ArcGIS Desktop gives emergency response professionals the tools for creating, updating, and maintaining that data. This course teaches how to create GIS data, check the data for accuracy, add new address points, and draw in new street centerlines and boundary polygons as areas are built and other areas annexed.


Those in the emergency response field who need to ensure a clean and complete GIS database for their NextGen 9-1-1 implementation.
