Addressing data in local government just got easier to create, validate and maintain thanks to enhancements to FARRAGUT AddressOne, an enterprise addressing system. FARRAGUT, a public sector software company, announced today that AddressOne 3.0 is now generally available.
Despite the focus on the address as a unifying point for almost everything a city or county does, many departments in a local government maintain their own separate addressing databases (using their own separate conventions). The result, across the enterprise, is often a fractured jumble of addressing databases—each riddled with errors and inconsistencies—that can cause failures to put accurate and timely addressing information into the right hands (emergency services, as just one example).
“Version 3.0 represents a significant step forward for managing addressing on an enterprise level,” said Bill Campbell, Vice President of Local Government Solutions, FARRAGUT. “Not only does AddressOne 3.0 support the latest technology from ESRI, it also provides enhanced tools for managing, sharing, and distributing addressing information throughout a local government.”
Major new features incorporated into AddressOne 3.0 include:
- A master street dictionary that manages and reserves street names and associated attributes (e.g., the dictionary automatically marks street names that have been reserved by developers, municipalities, etc.). The dictionary prevents redundant naming of streets—a hassle at best, a potential public safety hazard at worst.
- A user interface for managing the street centerline and their associated attributes (e.g., address ranges, jurisdictional boundaries, emergency response areas). The centerline is leveraged by various county departments (e.g., emergency services) to provide accurate location data.
- Support of ESRI’s ArcGIS Version 10
- AddressOne’s Seeker module (a robust browser-based interface for address consumers) has been completely re-written to support ESRI’s ArcGIS Server
- Extended capability to better manage and view historical changes to an address and to view the temporal changes in addresses
- Better integration facilities that allow addresses to be shared with other applications (e.g., building permits)
Since 1994, FARRAGUT has been leading the way to help local government applications—and personnel—work better together to serve the public. When multiple departments enter the same data into multiple databases, errors arise and precious resources are wasted. FARRAGUT software ties systems together and streamlines business functions. With improved productivity and accuracy, customers can be more responsive to citizens’ needs, lower operating costs and increase revenues. FARRAGUT is a Microsoft® Gold Partner and a longstanding ESRI® Business Partner. For more information, visit http://www.farragut.com.
