The Citywide Street Centerline Database (CSCL) is the authoritative source for location data used by New York City's public safety agencies (NYPD, FDNY) for 911 call-taking and dispatch. It is an ESRI enterprise geodatabase that is jointly maintained by 2 city agencies- the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications and the Department of City Planning. Designed more for data maintenance, CSCL is not easily accessible by the day-to-day GIS user. This presentation will show how we have applied FME to create a version of CSCL that is better suited for general GIS tasks and made it available to all city agencies, to the public via NYC Open Data, and to Batman.
