CAAR Map puts data at fingertips

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Accurate information is invaluable for  planning — the CAPCOG Geographic Information System Program’s latest product, the Capital Area Addressing and Referencing Map (CAAR Map), delivers accurate, regional and timely data to planners and others.

CAPCOG uses the monthly updated address points and street data in the CAAR Map dataset for 9-1-1 emergency response and planning purposes. But these datasets are also useful in determining transportation routes for buses, taxis and other transit. When overlaid with demographic data, it can help determine area development trends for demographic analysis and growth planning. CAAR Map data can also be used as an excellent reference for plotting an organization’s customer database or other address information onto the map. This can be useful for marketing and many other purposes.

Because CAAR Map is based on emergency response data, the information goes through a rigorous process for correcting errors and a geocode testing. The process has led to 99.6 percent accuracy rating of its data. The high accuracy rating plus monthly updating and archiving makes CAAR Map a unique and superior product. CAAR Map is offered as a seamless, region-wide dataset covering all jurisdictions in CAPCOG’s 10 counties — Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis, and Williamson.
