DATAMARK Selected by Maine for NG9-1-1 GIS Data Enhancement
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DATAMARK, the public safety GIS team of Michael Baker International, announces that the Maine Public Utilities Commission, Emergency Services Communication Bureau has selected the firm for Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) geographic information system (GIS) data enhancement. This work will be critical as the state moves toward a statewide, comprehensive GIS address point layer and road centerline layer that meet and exceed the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSDI). The project includes a review of existing road centerline data and existing structure location data to spatially adjust the geometries to meet national standards and to provide a mechanism for the remediation of missing/incomplete/incorrect address location data and/or attributes. The project commenced in June 2020 and is expected to last through February 2022.
"Our team consists of leaders in the complex technical areas of GIS, public safety and NG9-1-1, all of whom have extensive experience executing large-scale NG9-1-1 GIS data enhancement projects," said Chris Friel, Director of Strategic Accounts at DATAMARK, Michael Baker International. "Our data-forward, full-service – yet configurable – solutions will provide the highest levels of public safety GIS data completeness and accuracy for the State of Maine's NG9-1-1 services."
The project will improve Maine's GIS data statewide to meet the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) recommendation for the horizontal accuracy of GIS data layers. The DATAMARK team will update the existing NG9-1-1 1 road centerline dataset to a more spatially accurate LiDAR-derived road dataset while keeping all the attributes and topological relationships of the linear features. Positional Accuracy Improvement (PAI) rules will be configured to align the NG9-1-1 road centerline dataset to the iDAR-generated dataset. The PAI process consists of performing the change detection, including matching, between the LiDAR generated and NG9-1-1 datasets. The matched and reshaped features will be shifted to align to the LiDAR dataset while still maintaining topological integrity.
DATAMARK will use two proprietary software solutions throughout this project:
DATAMARK will work in conjunction with partners Quantum Spatial and 1Spatial throughout the project.
