GeoAuthor® 2.0 Introduced At NCSL Spring Forum

Tampa, FL May 8, 2009 - International Computer Works, Inc. (ICW) introduced GeoAuthor® 2.0 at the National Council of State Legislatures (NCSL) Spring Forum in Washington D.C. to a welcoming audience. Of the numerous special interest groups attending the NCSL Spring Forum, the Elections and Redistricting group was the primary audience.

GeoAuthor® is designed to provide the user with an easy-to-use set of tools with which to create a project for a county or county equivalent using TIGER/Line Shapefiles provided by the US Bureau of the Census. Once the project is created the GeoAuthor® permits the user to make edits to the geometry and tabular attributes of the map data. This includes realigning TIGER to local geometry (i.e. parcel maps, aerial photos, etc.), adding missing features (i.e. streets, water, landmarks, etc.), modifying tabular attributes (i.e. names, address ranges, ZIP Codes, etc.) and use the diagnostic routines in GeoAuthor® to confirm the integrity of the data. GeoAuthor® also includes GeoPoints© which is designed to create and maintain geographic databases of points and tabular attributes.

GeoAuthor® 2.0 runs in the MapInfo Professional environment and is the only commercially available full featured editing product for making topologically correct edits to TIGER/Line Shapefiles. GeoAuthor® 2.0 represents the next generation of editing from ICW following TIGERUS© which first introduced in 1995.

“The Census products have always been extremely valuable to a diverse audience of both private and public sector decision makers. Our goal since 1995 has been to deliver an easy-to-use and well structured means with which the end-user can economically update and enhance the TIGER\Line geography making it suitable for expanded use in decision support systems,” said Ken Tozier CEO of ICW. “At the end of the day one can have over 40 layers of enhanced geographic data produced by GeoAuthor® 2.0.”

A special version of GeoAuthor® was previously released which successfully assisted elections officials to participate in the VTD phase of the US Bureau of the Census Redistricting program for 2010 to facilitate the inclusion of VTD geography in the new TIGER/Line Shape Files.
