Address and Road Centerline Data Standard

Address and Road Centerline Data Standard

The Technical Committee is working toward the development of address point and road centerline data standards.  There is no intent to mandate the format in which data custodians are to maintain their data.  Instead, the goal is to create a common data exchange format that can feed into many applications that require address data.  NG911 is expected to be one of the applications that will be supported.  Soon you will be asked to provide input on the draft standards.

Please take a look at the proposed data standards linked below.

 The simple comparison tables (below) are intended to show how other schema requirements, such as NG911 via the NENA standard, can be met with the proposed data standard. The proposed standard would meet the NENA standard through schema translation and joining to publicly available relational tables.
