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.

Web Apps #2 Track. MassDOT Highway Division Interactive Mapping Portal and Crash Tracking (IMPACT) Project
AUTHORS: Larry Spraker, Sam Berg – VHB

ABSTRACT: The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Highway Division is tasked with collecting crash data and providing timely, accurate vehicular crash information to Federal, State and Local authorities in addition to ensuring the information is publicly available. The data is also critical to supporting Highway’s roadway safety management process. In 2018 the Highway Division embarked on an effort to streamline its existing crash data collection, geocoding, review and validation, and reporting processes by designing, developing, and deploying a modern, stable, extensible, scalable, and integrated enterprise system titled Interactive Mapping Portal and Crash Tracking (IMPACT). Deploying a methodology steeped in collaboration, the project has resulted in a suite of process improvements by developing streamlined workflows and integrating new functionality as elicited through a comprehensive requirements elicitation phase coupled with an agile development process. Balancing a desire for commercial off the shelf (COTS) based solutions with unique workflow requirements, IMPACT achieves the goals of replacing the existing system, leveraging Esri’s Roads and Highways, enhancing critical workflows, realizing an updated and integrated data model, and deploying a comprehensive reporting and analytical toolset. This presentation will outline process improvements, system design patterns, management challenges, and ultimate success realized through this important effort.
