MADISON, Wis – The Wisconsin NextGen9-1-1 GIS Implementation Plan is now available on the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, Office of Emergency Communications (OEC) website.

The newly released Plan was developed as part of a larger NextGen9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) project with OEC and consulting firm, Geo-Comm, Inc. and outlines the tasks necessary at the state and local levels for preparing local Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data for call routing on an NG9-1-1 system.

The NG9-1-1 GIS Implementation Plan is located at: https://oec.wi.gov/wp-content/library/2022/2022%20WI%20NG911%20GIS%20Implementation%20Plan_Final.pdf?_t=1647288501.

As part of the same project, the 911 Subcommittee approved the NG9-1-1 GIS Data Standards and Best Practices Guide in November 2020. The Guide was developed in conjunction with the Wisconsin Land Information Association (WLIA) NG9-1-1 Task Force and Geo-Comm, Inc., to promote a uniform, common data model for the required NG9-1-1 GIS data layers utilized on the statewide ESInet and to further enable NG9-1-1 services across the state.

The 2020 NG9-1-1 GIS Data Standards and Best Practices Guide is located at: https://oec.wi.gov/wp-content/library/2020/WI_NG911_GIS_Data_Standard_and_Best_Practices_FINAL.pdf.   More information on Wisconsin NextGen9-1-1 and the OEC is available at https://oec.wi.gov/.
