US: A National technology magazine, CIOReview, has placed US-based GeoComm in the list of its 20 most promising international GIS solutions providers for 2015.
"Most 911 systems today are based on hard wire (landline based)," GeoComm marketing strategy director Amanda Romaine told St. Cloud Times. "But with people moving to cellphones, the system has to move from a hard wire to an (Internet protocol)-based infrastructure."
Because of this switch, locating a distressed caller has become more difficult. Cellphone technology now gives first responders a radius to search, instead of a specific location. GeoComm has been working on new technology to eliminate uncertainty and aid first responders.
