GeoComm Publishes 3D and Indoor 9-1-1 Caller Location Mapping White Paper

GeoComm is pleased to announce the release of a white paper describing a successfully completed 3D and indoor 9-1-1 caller location mapping pilot project.  Under an innovative new partnership, GeoComm and Saint Cloud State University (SCSU) jointly conducted research and development that produced a 3D and Indoor Tactical Mapping System capable of tracking location and movement of mobile phones on campus and inside buildings.  The project combined highly accurate and detailed exterior 3D building models provided by GeoComm business partner Pictometry Inc., with indoor maps for buildings on campus created by SCSU researchers, and GeoComm location tracking and communications technology.   

The pilot project follows NENA NG9-1-1 and IETF standards for indoor 9-1-1 caller locations that include sub-address elements such as building name, place type, floor, suite, room, and seat.  In February 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed new rules to improve indoor and mobile phone 9-1-1 call location accuracy.  In November 2014, the nation’s major wireless carriers and public safety industry groups reached a consensus plan for improving cellular 9-1-1 caller location detection both outdoors and indoors.

The GeoComm pilot project and white paper examines benefits, challenges, and practical considerations for 9-1-1 PSAPs and emergency responders, in advance of 3D and indoor location tracking improvements to the nation’s 9-1-1 system.
