question from a journalist
I am a telecommunications reporter with The Associated Press (AP) who writes about first-responder radio interoperability and technologies.
I recently stumbled upon a new issue (to me) about interoperability issues with mapping/GIS/geospatial systems used by different agencies.
My research thus far has found quite a bit of impassioned debate about the wisdom of ensuring that different agencies responding to the same incident can share location information reliably and accurately......
BUT, aside from a few vague examples, I can't honestly tell whether this is an issue that actually arises in the field, possibly delaying response times, or is more of a potential risk.
I am willing to speak on background just to get a better feel about how serious an issue this is and whether it deserves an article focusing some light on it.
Please feel free to phone me at 212-621-1738, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks, and apologies for any perceived intrusion on your community.

You say that you are this. But, we don't know you. I've been in the fire service over 40 years and I don't give out any information regarding radio operation or fire department operation's, to any one that I do not know.
The best way for you to address this would be throught APCO and not in these fourms!!
