Z-axis and Indoor Maps, the Intersection of Location for Public Safety
Indoor maps and location accuracy are important parts of the public safety ecosystem as we expand the need for information to assist first responders in understanding where they are. The major cellular carriers are now providing not only X and Y location information, but also Z-axis data. The Z-axis information provided on the DataStream comes into the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) as a Height Above Ellipsoid (HAE) or Uncompensated Barometric Pressure (UBP). Unfortunately, this information coming in is content without context. Understanding the relationship of what the HAE is, and the translation from height above terrain or floor in an indoor map will be explored.
