ODOT Location Based Response System
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Location Based Response System (LBRS) establishes partnerships between State and County government for the creation of spatially accurate street centerlines with address ranges and field verified site-specific address locations.
ODOT has been working with the Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP) to develop a comprehensive, statewide Geographic Information System (GIS). The resulting Location Based Response System (LBRS) will include highly accurate field verified data that is current, complete, consistent, and accessible.
LBRS provides many benefits:
- Improved 911 response using current, accurate data.
- Improved accuracy of road inventory for better planning and assignment of work crews.
- Accurate data for calculating mileage affecting funding.
- Accurate municipal, township, and county boundaries for allocation of resources and costs.
- Reduced redundant data collection efforts while sharing data among all government entities.
- Saved taxpayer dollars.
The LBRS project to collect, validate and incorporate data into the State LRS will take three years. We expect to incorporate the first counties in 2018 and will complete the incorporation of counties in 2020. Also, after the project is complete, there will be an ongoing effort to update and maintain data.
