The application integrates location data validation functionality and advanced editing capabilities into a platform that is accessed anywhere with an internet connection.

Technical Services

A primary challenge of NG9-1-1 readiness, regardless of the accuracy or completeness of GIS data, is establishing the appropriate relationships, policies and governance. While not a technical issue, the process requires experts who understand both business processes and their implications on the technical aspects of NG9-1-1. The DATAMARK team’s depth of expertise in 9-1-1 communications and public safety technology will help guide you through NG9-1-1 strategic planning, policy development, and governance coordination.

DATAMARK’s expert GIS analysts and subject-matter experts will work with your team to expand its capabilities and accomplish its goals. Tasks may include the compiling of a master address database from multiple sources, conducting a validation analysis of the data, and providing results for review and approval. Other activities include performing GIS comparisons to determine gaps, evaluating anomalies and determining errors in the data, and providing results for review and approval by a jurisdictional administrator. We can also work with your key stakeholders in developing PSAP and emergency service boundaries.
