Census Track. Synchronization and Standardization of Address Points and Street Centerline Files
AUTHORS: James Coyle, Geographic Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau

ABSTRACT: Synchronizing and standardizing address points with street centerlines can be highly advantageous in maintaining large address databases. This presentation will advance a spatial methodology for synchronizing the 6.1 million New York State E-911 address points with the US Census Bureau TIGER line files. The methodology has a significant number of useful outputs which include a drop point on the street centerline for use in network analysis, an offset point that may be used for cartographic labeling, coding for each address point that indicates the specific standardization method used. Finally, since each address point is allocated to a specific TIGER segment, this method establishes a framework for small area analysis or spatial analysis at the block face level that can be used to advance community health analysis. Finally, this presentation will present how owner occupancy has evolved in Erie County, New York in the time period 2005-2015 utilizing the methodology advanced in this presentation.

Enterprise GIS #1 Track. Dr. Strange Locus, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Common Gateway Interface
AUTHORS: Stephen Washburn, GZA GeoEnvironmental; Justin Ivas, GZA GeoEnvironmental

ABSTRACT: This presentation will cover the automated mapping platform we have developed using python, JS, CGI, and ESRI API that we have dubbed “GZA Automap”. It provides an easy to use front end or “user interface” on our company SharePoint. The platform allows users to interact with the front end on SharePoint to automatically generate project specific maps derived from information stored in in our SQL enterprise databases. We have begun with the most commonly used and simplest to automate, the Site Locus Map and the Site Plan.

As the platform progresses we hope to add support for the automation of textual reporting, exploration location plans, geotechnical or environmental sub-surface profiles and much more!
