Building an Address Repository Using the FGDC Standard: Implementing Quality and Data Sharing - A virtual workshop

URISA is pleased to announce the presentation of one of its most popular Certified Workshops, Building an Address Repository using the FGDC Standard: Implementing Quality and Data Sharing, via instructor-led web based training. This URISA workshop is regularly presented at URISA conferences, chapter events, and at regional conferences. Normally a full-day classroom session, the workshop has been re-packaged into three sections and will be presented online this August to meet the constant demand for the subject matter without the travel expense and time away from work. The workshop content is thoroughly peer-reviewed and updated each year and is eligible for GISP Education credit (8 hours of EDU-2).

This 8-hour workshop will be presented over three days:

Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 1:00- 4:00 pm EDT
Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 1:00- 4:00 pm EDT
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 - 1:00- 3:00 pm EDT

Cost: URISA International Members: $195 Non-members: $295

Attendees will receive all of the benefits of traditional classroom learning in an interactive online classroom while not having the expense of traveling to onsite training locations. Interactive communication between the instructor and other attendees is accomplished through communication tools within the training platform. Participants will receive an electronic workbook to accompany the instruction and certificate of completion.

Course Description: Street addresses are the key, user-friendly geospatial identifier used by everyone, but addressing processes are usually poorly organized at the local level.

This workshop will help you understand the addressing process, managing address data, and organizational challenges. It will guide you in developing a Master Address Repository that serves the needs of the entire organization. The workshop will also review the Federal Geographic Data Committee Street Address Data Standard, and help you understand how the standard can help you build quality address data.

Specific topics include:

  *   What is an address?
  *   What are the types of address?
  *   How are addressing systems structured, and addresses assigned?
  *   How do you develop a Master Address Repository
  *   Geocoding and managing addresses in the GIS
  *   Organizational issues with addressing
  *   Working with the FGDC Street Address Data Standard

Intended Audience: GIS Managers, staff members who assign, maintain or use addresses. This workshop will focus on managing address workflows, address data, and use.

Instructor Profile: Ms. McCart Wells is co-chair of the FGDC Addressing Standards Working Group that championed adoption in 2011 of the United States Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal Address Data Standard and is currently being updated. She had been the primary instructor of the very popular URISA Addressing Workshop for several years. As founder of Spatial Focus, Inc., she brings over 40 years of experience in local government planning and zoning, organizational issues, budgeting, project management, real estate development, transportation planning, and coastal zone management.
