9-1-1 GIS Data Maintenance GIS data provisioned to an ECRF/LVF or PSAP mapping system must first be created, and must also be maintained over time. GIS data can be authored and maintained using a variety of different GIS software applications. The dominant provider of GIS software in state and local government is Esri (Environmental Systems Research Institute, www.esri.com). Other vendors, , provide GIS software to state and local government as well. In addition, there are some open source GIS applications as well to investigate.
ERM provides, 9-1-1 GIS data management applications and services on top of existing broadly horizontal GIS platforms. These platforms are used in a variety of different industries ranging from utilities, to defense, to natural resources mapping, to business analytics, and beyond. NENA has not standardized any particular end-user GIS application or platform. 9-1-1 authorities are free to pick and choose the best GIS platform, software, and vendor services for editing and maintaining GIS data for 9-1-1, based upon their own particular needs and individual enterprise requirements.
