NYC CityWide Street Centerline

DoITT and the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) worked cooperatively to enhance the City’s existing street centerline (“LION”) and related datasets to support Unified Call Taking (UCT) and the computer-aided dispatch systems (CAD) at NYPD and FDNY. Bowne was responsible for the design and implementation of the new CSCL dataset used to create extracts that could be loaded into the public safety CAD systems to improve the accuracy of dispatching. The project included creation or enhancement of the following GIS and non-GIS datasets: address points, street centerlines, ESN Polygons and supporting feature classes such as alias street names, landmarks, transit stations, mile post markers, bridge and tunnel polygons and natural drainage (hydrography). Bowne subsequently designed and developed an application for the Department of City Planning to maintain the new CSCL dataset.
