NENA seeks volunteers for a new working group to address specific items identified as future work in the NENA Standard for NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model. This document will be developed in compliance with ANSI Essential Requirements processes. The scope of this working group is limited to these items:

  • Canada extension
  • Inconsistencies related to layer names, domains, and street type field names
  • Potential data model structure or content modifications needed for atypical street naming and the representation of driveways and non-traversable roads. Recommendations for data model structural changes will be considered as provided from the GIS Stewardship for NG9-1-1: Road Centerlines WG.
  • Clarifying text for R/L domain concepts
  • Clarifying text for spatial references and horizontal accuracy

Volunteers for this work group should have a variety of expertise with GIS data management and need to have a solid understanding of the NENA Standard for NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model and the NENA Information Document for GIS Data Stewardship for Next Generation 9-1-1. Participants with the following experience and/or skills are especially needed:

  • Substantial experience in Canadian address data management
  • Experience managing GIS Road Centerlines databases (USA and/or Canada)
  • Experience implementing the NENA Standard for NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model
  • Geodesy or other similar experience with spatial reference and horizontal accuracy

When signing up for the WG, please document which of these skills you possess in the “Knowledge, Skills, Abilities You Offer” section of the form. WG members will be required to participate in at least one of the subgroups that will be formed to focus on a specific scope item. Skillsets will be taken into consideration when subgroups are formed and members may need to provide additional information regarding their related experience when they submit their request to join this working group. 90-minute calls will be held every Thursday at 2PM Eastern beginning Thursday, June18, 2020.
