The State of Ohio, Office of Information Technology, Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP) is coordinating multi-agency efforts to establish the Location Based Response System (LBRS) and the Ohio Statewide Imagery Program (OSIP).

The LBRS establishes partnerships between State and County government for the creation of positionally accurate street centerlines with address ranges and site-specific addresses. The Ohio Department of Transportation serves as the program sponsor, providing technical guidance, support, and QA/QC services. The participating counties provide the onsite project management and QA/QC on road names, addresses, etc.

The OSIP is creating 1-foot pixel resolution color digital aerial imagery and a consistent Digital Elevation Model (DEM) generated from LiDAR to support state agency applications. The orthophotography will be used by numerous state agencies to improve performance and services including the ODOT, ODNR, OEPA, EMA, and Agriculture. The imagery products collected will benefit a wide variety of applications including economic development and management of properties, utilities, and the environment and will be used by emergency response agencies for planning and modeling, response, and recovery, thereby improving performance, safety, and public health.
