January 16, 2007 -- Digital Data Technologies, Inc. (DDTI®), installed its AccuGlobe® E9-1-1 Dispatch mapping software in the Zanesville Police Department.
Zanesville’s Police Department can now dispatch emergency units to 9-1-1 calls with greater efficiency and confidence, as the origin of every call is displayed on a digital map for the dispatcher. Calls from land lines zoom directly to the structure using the county’s existing ortho, or aerial, photography.
AccuGlobe E9-1-1 software also offers easy search capabilities, automatic routing applications and automatic vehicle location (AVL).
“Until DDTI installed their 9-1-1 Dispatch software, we didn’t have the convenience of an instant image of the 9-1-1 caller’s location,” said Zanesville Police Department Captain Doug Merry. “With that now in place, we can do our job more efficiently and our responders can get to the scene faster. It’s added protection for our community.”
The DDTI 9-1-1 software now provides accurate mapping capabilities throughout Muskingum County, since the company had previously installed its AccuGlobe E9-1-1 Dispatch and Mobile software in the County Sheriff’s Office. AccuGlobe E9-1-1 Mobile offers the functionality of the dispatch environment console, but with a design formatted specifically for field use in mobile data terminals with large touch-screen buttons and optional audible routing directions.
Further strengthening the effectiveness of the AccuGlobe 9-1-1 suite, the software depends on a highly detailed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) dataset collected by DDTI known as the Location Based Response System, or LBRS. LBRS is a program that establishes partnerships between State and County government for the creation of spatially accurate street centerlines and field verified site-specific address locations. The Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP), the state's coordinating body for Geographic Information System (GIS) activities, is administering the program. DDTI is the only vendor to have successfully delivered a project.
DDTI captures highly detailed information that surpasses even LBRS specifications, including assets that can impact emergency vehicle routing: one-way restrictions; traffic control devices; railroad crossings; speed limits; school zones; and visible bridge and culvert locations.
AccuGlobe E9-1-1 Dispatch mapping software functions as a stand-alone product, or integrates with an agency’s existing Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD).
Digital Data Technologies, Inc., is a premier full-service vendor specializing in the creation and dissemination of Geographical Information Systems data that aids in the accurate location of wireline and wireless calls to 9-1-1.
