Gistic Presented at NSGIC Midyear Conference in Salt Lake City, UT

As an Arizona NSGIC (National State Geographic Information Council) member, Dr. Bo Guo attended the NSGIC Midyear conference in Salt Lake City, Utah in late February 2018.    

Bo co-presented “Enhancing the Arizona Address Data Management Ecosystem” with the state delegate members Jenna Straface, Gene Trobia, and Howard Ward.  

The presenters provided a brief overview of the Arizona Address Management ecosystem and discuss several of its key components:

  • Data governance and project support in a changing state environment;
  • EMAP, an interactive collaboration and authoritative crowdsourcing platform for address maintenance;
  • A3i, an AI-based web address parser and geocoding application contributing to the consistency, quality, and efficiency of address geocoding and maintenance; and
  • AZGIV, an ambitious online address, and submission and integration system.
