9-1-1 Mapping Resources

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and location accuracy are critical components for locating a 9-1-1 emergency caller quickly and efficiently. GIS data is used in all 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) today for map displays, call routing and address verification. As 9-1-1 transitions into the future and uses new technology for locating a 9-1-1 caller, it is crucial that the location of the caller is correct and accurate. The 9-1-1 Program continues to partner with local, state and federal partners as well as industry leaders to develop, maintain and support quality GIS location data.  

Since 2006, the State 9-1-1 Program has sponsored and planned Oregon’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Mapping and Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) Coordinator Conference.

This 2-3 day meeting is an invaluable opportunity for all participants to:

  • Interact and exchange ideas with peers from around the state
  • Attend informative presentations and participate in trainings

Thanks to generous and repeated support from industry partners, the conference is provided at no-cost to GIS data providers/maintainers, MSAG coordinators, 9-1-1 mapping professionals and telecommunicators, state/local government leaders, private sector vendors and telecommunication partners.
