Implementation Guidance: Information Sharing Standards

July 2, 2019

The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation released the first version of the Implementation Guidance: Information Sharing Standards for Crisis Management Mutual Aid Technology.

The purpose of this Implementation Guidance is to serve as a simple guide on choosing the appropriate information sharing standard for a given need, as well as, identifying key considerations for communicating information between systems. 

The Implementation Guidance was designed to support two audiences:

  1. Public Safety Leaders – Designed to help them determine best options for their needs and properly communicate those requirements
  2. Technologists/Vendors – Intended to help guide technical implementation and provide technical guidance on information sharing standards

This Guidance is available to access and download at:
