Hancock County Enlists DDTI to Deliver Upgraded LBRS Dataset

April 02, 2008 -- COLUMBUS, OHIO - Digital Data Technologies, Inc. (DDTI®) has successfully delivered Hancock County's Location Based Response System (LBRS) road centerline and addressing data to the State's Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP).

DDTI created Hancock County's first centerline dataset in 2002, one year before the introduction of Ohio's LBRS initiative. The LBRS was designed to create a statewide Geographical Information System (GIS) comprised of spatially accurate street centerlines and field-verified site-specific address locations. Additionally, the LBRS will improve the state's overall road inventory, including the identification of unreported roads and updating of municipal road inventories that enhance Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) records.

Because of similar experience in creating such detailed datasets, DDTI was selected to complete the pilot program in Fairfield County in 2003. Since then, every LBRS dataset DDTI has created and delivered has not only been approved by, but has qualified the participating counties for reimbursement funding from, the State of Ohio.

"We felt very comfortable working with DDTI a second time to update our dataset so it's LBRS-compliant, as well as to incorporate new roads and developments to our GIS since the first data creation process," said Hancock County GIS Manager Scott Harden. "They have delivered approved LBRS datasets for more than half Ohio's counties, so we know we're getting quality data."

DDTI delivered Hancock County's upgraded dataset with a total of 1,656 miles of road centerline and 32,627 field-verified address locations, according to Project Coordinator Tony Collura.

The new LBRS dataset will supplement and increase the effectiveness of DDTI's AccuGlobe® E9-1-1 Dispatch™ software, which is installed in the Hancock County Sheriff's Office. The application displays a digital map with the origin of each answered 9-1-1 call. Calls from land lines will zoom directly to the structure using the county's GIS data, while wireless calls - which are not always placed from addressable structures - appear as points on the map surrounded by a buffer, or circle, labeled with a percentage of confidence indicating the call's origin.

"The maps in our 9-1-1 software will match what's actually out in our county, so there will be no delays in dispatching emergency response when our residents call for help," said County Information Technology Manager Dale Shaheen. "It's not just roads and addresses - being able to calculate the field-verified inventory of variables like speed limits into our routing will streamline response times."

Digital Data Technologies, Inc., is a premier full-service vendor specializing in the creation and dissemination of Geographical Information Systems data that aid in the accurate location of wireline and wireless calls to 9-1-1.
