Description: The Virginia Geographic Information Network (VGIN) is coordinating the development and maintenance of a statewide Address Point data layer in conjunction with local governments across the Commonwealth in order to create a seamless feature class with address numbers and road names to complement the Virginia Base Mapping Program's (VBMP) Road Centerline (RCL) product by providing even more accurate geocoding results. Address Points can be used as a quality control resource for localities and VGIN for checking RCL address range and street name accuracy, which directly assists dispatch mapping systems. The Address Point data leverages the Commonwealth's investment in VBMP digital orthophotography as well as focusing its efforts to create a single statewide address point layer to be used in the VGIN Geocoding Web Service (GWS). Address Points are data developed and produced by Virginia's Local Governments and sent to VGIN along with Road centerline updates. A series of checks are run on the locality data and the schema is pared where necessary. An ETL process is run to match the VA Address Point model.
