Case Study, Franklin County, Ohio Location Based Response System (LBRS) Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) Project First Legacy Integrated Large Scale LBRS Project Transmap has worked with MORPC on a 2 phase centerline and address collection/ verification project which is the first of the LBRS projects to use legacy data collected from local municipalities and the Franklin County Engineers COMBAT project. Over 5600 centerline miles and 600,000 addresses have been integrated or verified in accordance with the LBRS data specifications. Now Franklin County is the only large scale urban LBRS County done to date in the state of Ohio. This project was a collaboration of Franklin County and many local municipalities, as well as E911, COTA, and Fire Officials in order to better the Location Based Response System. Once the product is finished, 911 will be able to speed up response time and tie into GPS devices on newer cell phones. COTA will have the capability of bus routing for Paratransit. The centerline map can help Franklin County and the City of Columbus with snow plow, trash and street sweeper routing. Franklin County is the only county to use Legacy data integration in their LBRS system.
