GIS is a spatial database system that provides powerful decision making tools public governance from producing simple hard copy maps to analyzing complex crime patterns. GIS tools are used by emergency responders to respond to accidents, housing specialists to analyze the quality and condition of housing, environmentalists to identify the location of hazardous waste sites, social service workers to identify the location of elderly and disabled, waste management officials to route vehicles, police to analyze crime patterns, public works crew to maintain road inventory, etc..
The goal of 9-1-1 GIS in the 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Program is to incorporate data from all counties and municipalities within the ATCOG region, along with Federal and State data, to create digital maps for the purpose 9-1-1 call routing as part of Next Generation 9-1-1 and to create 9-1-1 dispatch maps for Emergency Services throughout the same region. Additionally, 9-1-1 GIS provides the data utilized in mapping applications used at the Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). Lastly, 9-1-1 GIS makes every effort to meet the needs of local governments and emergency services by facilitating production of specific mapping requests, with the focus of striving to serve all aspects of 9-1-1 necessity, whether it be law enforcement, fire, or emergency medical services. Separately, 9-1-1 GIS can service various mapping and data requests on a case-by-case basis, to include, but not limited to: geospatial analysis, voter district maps, and economic development.
Below are the nine counties within the ATCOG region. Please feel free to download the maps.
