Street Address Mapping (SAM) Project

The Office of Information Technology Services GIS Program Office is well into the data build for the Street Address Mapping (SAM) Project. The goal of the SAM Project is to build a publically accessible address point file that has a point on all addressed structures and vacant addressed parcels. Standardized, accurate, and up-to-date address points are a required dataset for Next Gen 9-1-1 (NG911). More information about the SAM Project can be found at http://www.dhses.ny.gov/ocs/streets. Initial deliverables of the address point data are available as downloadable data or as a web service at http://gis.ny.gov/gisdata/inventories/details.cfm?DSID=921.
