Cleveland Water (CWD) services 640 square miles and provides water to more than 1.5 million citizens. This translates into over 635,000 physical service addresses throughout multiple counties. As one of the nationís 10 largest water utilities, CWD has committed to GIS in managing its distribution system and service-address database. A number of data sources feed the Cleveland GIS address GeoDatabase. Due to complexities in dealing with multiple agencies, database schemas, end-user needs, and politics, Cleveland GIS would like to establish a regional addressing consortium and address management system. The purpose of this presentation is to inform Ohio agencies of CWDís desire to develop a GIS based regional address management strategy & system. This data management and data sharing effort will utilize GeoDatabase replication technology while building on the address data scheme established through the Stateís LBRS program. The result will provide current and consistent address data while maintaining local and authoritative control.
