Iberia Parish has entered into a contract with GeoComm, Inc. of Saint Cloud, Minnesota to assist with GIS map data development. The contract involves GeoComm staff performing GPS fieldwork throughout the parish. GeoComm’s main purpose during fieldwork is to collect GPS coordinates for all roads and habitable structures in Iberia Parish. This data will be imported into the parish’s 9-1-1 system to help with locating 9-1-1 callers.
During the months of April and May, GeoComm representatives will be driving every road in Iberia Parish collecting this data. Their vehicles are marked with the GeoComm logo and contact information along with a sign that they are doing official 9-1-1 business. In addition, the workers have identification badges.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact GeoComm at (888) 436-2666 and ask for the Iberia Parish project team, or contact Prescott Marshall, 9-1-1 Director, Iberia Parish, at (337) 369-4427.
