911 Mapping Systems, Inc.
CAD systems provided text display of the Caller's Address, call history
and available emergency response resources.In
1994, working in cooperation with the emergency response agencies of
Covington, KY, 911 Mapping Systems, Inc.
founded in 1992 by Robert Graham Thomas Jr., implemented the first real-time
on-screen E911 street map display in the U.S.
That original system automatically highlighted the caller's position, nearest available emergency responders
and other relevant information such as fire hydrants, hazardous materials
and/or other data maintained by the city. Since those early days, integrated
mapping became a standard and integral part of all CAD systems and continues
to evolve alongside 911 response technology.
