Since 1998, Burlington County has been maintaining its own GPS road centerlines which are heavily used internally for mapping.  However, the GPS centerlines do not contain address attributes thereby causing us to rely on commercial datasets for addressing.  In 2012, the commercial dataset was replaced by the newly created road centerlines provided by the New Jersey Office of GIS.

In order to support our 911 call center, it became necessary for Burlington County to review and edit the centerlines from NJ OGIS.  This effort is still ongoing in a maintenance phase.  Roads and addresses do not exist in a vacuum; they are related to and interdependent on many other layers as well as information and processes that can feed into GIS.  Burlington County tries to account for this in our update methodology.

This presentation will cover Burlington County’s initial experience editing and enhancing the centerlines, the workflows and processes we have in place to continually update both the GPS road centerlines and the roads for 911, and our recent work to prepare the 911 centerlines to support an upgrade to our 911 CAD software.  This upgrade will bring us a step closer to Next Gen 911.

Throughout the past 6 years of editing and maintaining the 911 centerlines, we have worked with the New Jersey Office of GIS so our updates can be incorporated into their statewide NJ Roadway Centerlines.  In 2018, we are embarking on a partnership with NJ OGIS to supply them with new roads and edits through a geodata service.
