August 16, 2012

The Workgroup did not formally meet during this period. Charline Avey did meet with the Data Sharing Committee.

The Workgroup did not formally meet during this period.

 

February 16, 2012

The Workgroup is in the process of adopting a new point address and street centerline data model to take advantage of the latest National Emergency Number Association and FGDC addressing standards. IGIC, the Geographic Information Office, and Indiana Business Research Center are working together on a new master address development/maintenance/data sharing initiative being advocated by NSGIC and numerous partners including the U.S. Census Bureau.

In 2012, the Workgroup plans to continue to provide support for the IndianaMap Data Sharing Initiative and the development of quality control reporting methods on the harvested county data.

December 8, 2011

Charline is still looking for someone to be a co-chair of this committee with her! The committee leadership met with the GIO and Indiana Business Research Center on November 9th to discuss recent address related activities by the U.S. Census Bureau and how IGIC, the GIO, and IBRC can partner to work together on these initiatives.

 

October 20, 2011

The Workgroup did not meet during this period, but does have a meeting scheduled with the GIO and Indiana Business Research Center on November 9th at 1:30 pm. We are also looking for a co-chair!

April 28, 2011

The Committee did not meet during this period, but Charline Avey, Jim Sparks and Phil Worrall met with The Polis Center at IUPUI to discuss tools and methods for address point and centerline file improvement.

February 28, 2011

The Workgroup has not met since October but Chai, Charline Avey has taken the September dataset and run the parsing and standardizing application on the street centerline data and the point address data. A report is being created to give the possible changes that are needed to make the addresses USPS certified. This report will be given back to the stakeholders for their review and possible use.

The Workgroup is looking to adopt a single unified standard; unfortunately there are a lot of standards out there, with each standard created for different reasons. URISA Streets and Address workgroup has taken the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) and National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 911 draft standards and compared them. There is a comparison available at http://www.urisa.org/files/fgdc_nena_profile_20100317_line_numbered.pdf. Very little needs to be agreed upon to have a standard that satisfies both needs. We have received a final draft of the standard that also includes reconciliation between the NENA and the FGDC and a document that establishes a relationship between the FGDC standard and the USPS “Postal Addressing Standard”.

Our current goal is to define a data model that will accept any/all address and street format (and standards) in a single model for the IndianaMap. We have included the 9-character field name that’s being used in the IndianaMap shapefile download in a mapping data dictionary for review purposes. The Workgroup is looking at gaining feedback from those using the streets and address datasets available on the IndianaMap. We are also looking into other derivative works that could be used by other Indiana stakeholders. Jim Stout and Charline Avey attended an IUPPS (Indiana Underground Plant Protection Services) Board meeting and spoke to their IT department to determine what format might be useful to them.

The Workgroup did not meet this period.

The Workgroup has not met since April, but Chair Charline Avey has taken the September dataset and run the parsing and standardizing application on the street centerline data and the point address data. A report is being created to give the possible changes that are needed to make the addresses USPS certified. This report will be given back to the stakeholders for their review and possible use.

URISA Streets and Address workgroup has taken the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) and National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 911 draft standards and compared them. The FGDC invited comments by June 1, 2010. There is a comparison available at http://www.urisa.org/files/fgdc_nena_profile_20100317_line_numbered.pdf. There is very little that needs to be agreed upon in order to have a standard that satisfies both needs.

No activities were reported for this period.

June 17, 2010

Members of the Workgroup continue to work with the data from the monthly harvests of street centerline and point address data coming from the Statewide Data Sharing Initiative. During this last period over 2 million point addresses were shared from the IndianaMap with OpenAddresses.org.

April 15, 2010

The Workgroup’s current goal is to define a data model that will accept any/all address and street format (and standards) in a single model for the IndianaMap. Charline Avey has tried to map the data sharing standard to the FGDC standard. We have included the 9-character field name that’s being used in the IndianaMap shapefile download in a mapping data dictionary for review purposes. The Workgroup encourages all to use the streets and address datasets available on the IndianaMap and reply to Charline any needs the data doesn’t meet. Charline is also submitting information for the IGIC Data Integration Plan.

February 22, 2010

The Workgroup has taken the current data sharing standards and have added some suggestions for fields not currently in the standard. For now, Indiana Department of Homeland Security is sticking with the GDM standard. The Workgroup is looking to adopt a single unified standard. Unfortunately, there are a lot of standards out there, with each standard created for different reasons. Our current goal is to define a data model that will accept any/all address and street format [and standards] in a single model for the IndianaMap. Charline Avey has tried to map the data sharing standard to the FGDC standard. We are going with 9-character field name that’s being used in the Indiana Map shapefile download.

In 2008, the Workgroup will participate in the initial planning stages for the IGIC 2009 CAP Grant, “Demonstrating the IndianaMap Data Sharing Initiative with Four Key Framework Data Layers.” The Workgroup will evaluate the results of our current Data Sharing Initiative and develop a strategic plan for next steps and potential funding.

June 19, 2008

The Workgroup is concentrating on street centerlines. IGIC is working on the address point project so the workgroup will be waiting for that project to get underway before continuing with the addresses.

February 18, 2008

Although the last Workgroup meeting was cut short due to phone problems, we were able to discuss a few items. In future, we will compare URISA and Nena address standards for points and street centerlines.

January 17, 2008

The Streets and Addresses Workgroup met in December to discuss the inventory of existing local street and address data, and IGIC’s Address Integration Project, with the goal of determining how the workgroup fits in. The workgroup is also considering what role it will have with National Address Standards, and development of database schema for the IndianaMap.

September 20, 2007

The workgroup will hold its first meeting on October 9th. At that time, workgroup members will determine what tasks and goals need to be accomplished.
