SOMERSET COUNTY, MD
In mid 2005 Somerset County, MD contracted with Spatial Systems Associates Inc. (SSA) for the provision of 911 mapping services, funded entirely by the Maryland Emergency Number Systems Board.
Somerset County had essentially no mapping experience, no data aside from a tabular master address list and no database or internet expertise. They relied on SSA to develop a turnkey enterprise web-based GIS from the ground up. This work involved:
The complete system is currently in operational use by the county. SSA continues to provide as-needed support services to the County including overflow data maintenance, system support, and consultation.
"I would highly recommend Spatial Systems. Somerset County is a small rural county with a population of around 25,000. Spatial Systems did extensive work in our county on Centerline Mapping to make us Phase II compliant. Their work was very accurate; they were very professional and customer friendly."
