Geocoding and Data Improvement Workshop

Course Description:
The class will introduce basic concepts and processes of data improvement, address geocoding and illustrate how positional error caused by geocoding may affect the results of a GIS project. Particular attention will be given to the long term effects (i.e. cost savings) of data and attribute improvement. In addition, attendees will learn about current CSCIC programs and available resources to facilitate data improvement and geocoding. This course is designed for GIS users and technicians interested in the geocoding and data improvement processes, as well as those involved in data improvement and maintenance. Highlights of the class include technical geocoding demonstrations using the new Accident Location Information System (ALIS) road centerline file pre-release version.

A free DVD of this workshop is available upon request to the NYS NYS Office of Cyber Security & Critical Infrastructure Coordination.
