Set up a Free and Open Source server either in the Cloud of in your Office to help prepare data for the State of Tennessee’s Next Generation 911 System.
The Software Includes:
- QGIS 3.4.X – Provides the editing and map printing environment.
- PostgreSQL/PostGIS – maintains the Data in a database and with a projection.
- Geoserver – Can push your data into an existing online map or an online map created for the purpose of viewing this data.
- Fulcrum is the only commercial portion of this as it allows you to collect data and share it with QGIS/PostGIS/etc with ease.

The database set up in PostGIS follows the TN NG9-1-1 Standard and will share data with ESRI Software and a number of Computer Aided Dispatch systems.
With it you can:
- Add and Edit Data
- Make Maps
- Export to the State of TN’s NG911 Database
- Unlimited Desktop Users
- Pull Tennessee’s LIDAR data into your organization easily.
- Leverage Tennessee’s Google Imagery Investment
The biggest expense in this setup is the services. The Free and Open Source software is industry standard and backed by a community of users and commercial entities. Your organization doesn’t have to spend thousands on software for a enterprise system. You can push that money into training, data cleanup, and enhanced services to help your 911 organization.
NRGS is proud to have been a support provider of QGIS since 2014.
