SPAWAR Atlantic Selects GeoComm for Marine Corps Installation Addressing GIS Project - 11 Marine Corps Bases, with potential to add four more
  January 12, 2012

St. Cloud, MN: In the next 12 months, 11 United States Marine Corps (USMC) bases will be involved in a process designed to greatly improve their on-base emergency response systems. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Atlantic has partnered with GeoComm, a Minnesota-based public safety GIS, software, and consulting company, to assist in the deployment of modern emergency response capabilities.

GeoComm will deliver National Emergency Number Association (NENA)-compliant street and building address data and will develop E9-1-1 databases for each applicable Continental United States (CONUS) USMC installation. This effort includes utilizing all existing installation data and coordinating all efforts to complete digital GIS centerline mapping and address point placement along with Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) and Automatic Location Identification (ALI) database development to improve emergency call management capabilities.

The goal of this project will be to provide the address data and process improvements necessary to ensure reliable, high quality support of public safety agencies in providing Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), emergency response, and related services. The addressing information developed is intended to be multi-purposed and will also support address geocoding, vehicle routing, mailing lists, address validation and incident location geo-verification.

"GeoComm was a clear choice for this work in the demanding area of E9-1-1 as well as having experience with field verification mapping techniques and address generation," said Mark Jansen, GISP, SPAWAR Emergency Management Geospatial Engineer. "And meeting all of the technical requirements related to NENA and United States Postal Service (USPS) Addressing standards."

"SPAWAR and the USMC are undergoing an important project to increase the mutual aid emergency response to USMC bases," said Tom Grones, GeoComm President/CEO. "We are honored to assist in their efforts."
