Address Data – Want to improve efficiency and reduce redundancy of address information in your Enterprise GIS? Assess and Reconcile.
GOLDSBORO, N.C. – Geographic Technologies Group (GTG)
GTG recently completed Phase 1 of a project with the Town of Davie, Florida in which address data in their authoritative GIS site address point layer was compared to addresses in their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application – New World Systems (NWS). Exception reports were developed that clearly identified 1) addresses that exist in GIS but not in NWS, and 2) addresses that exist in NWS and not in GIS. These exception reports will be used during Phase 2 of the project where GTG staff will review each identified exception and reconcile the two address databases. This will result in greatly improved integration between GIS and NWS as well as improved geocoding of address data which can directly benefit (among other things) E911 response times.
In addition, GTG also performed a visual review of Davie’s site address GIS data to identify anomalies including:
- Non-standardized addresses
- Improperly placed address point locations
- Multi-dwelling units and commercial units improperly represented by a single address point instead of multiple
Each of these issues identified will need to be corrected in the GIS data and will in turn provide the Town with a very accurate representation of physical locations and will allow for more accurate geocoding of address data at Davie.
