BVCOG's regional GIS program assists the county database maintenance projects while also assigning addresses to new structures and mapping new roads in rural parts of counties.

Regional Geographic Information System (GIS)


BVCOG’s regional GIS program assists the county database maintenance projects in Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson, and Washington counties with mapping, validation and data processing associated with rural addressing for 9-1-1. Each county has a database maintenance/addressing coordinator that is responsible for assigning addresses to new structures and mapping new roads in the rural part of the counties.  Additionally, each county coordinator is responsible for maintaining the Master Street Address Guide (MSAG), updating the county maps with new roads and driveway point data, coordinating changes with municipalities and correcting errors in the 9-1-1 database.

BVCOG’s 9-1-1 GIS program implemented fully enhanced 9-1-1 Mapped Automatic Location Identification (ALI) systems at the 7 regional PSAPs. Mapped ALI is the geographic display of the 9-1-1 call and text message on a digital map.  Landline calls that have physical addresses and are accurately displayed on Mapped ALI, however wireless and text messages display an approximate location usually within 150 meters.
