Most digital mapping errors begin with human hands. Whether from being overlooked to just plain laziness, these errors have a great impact on many sheriff departments when time is of the utmost importance to get to an emergency, and when you factor in a rural location with fewer routes to an area these errors have even greater impact. That is why at Rural First, we spend a great deal of time evolving suitable strategies to reduce these errors.
Because all maps at Rural First start with local data retrieved from county maps, our first step is to perform an assessment to find how accurate the current mapping is. This assessment creates the baseline from which all our corrections will be made. In combination with digital mapping already available, we evaluate and compare discovering incorrect information.
And then the real work begins.
With our team of GIS mapping experts, these mapping errors are carefully fixed. Corrections are then evaluated by a team lead to insure they are true. The team lead then either approves the corrections, or sent back to our team of experts for further research. Not only does our expert map correction make Rural First a leader in the GPS tracking and solutions market, but out best practices approach to map correction sets us above and beyond the competition.
But because Rural First is an industry leader, our maps are Living Maps that our experts constantly return to update, correct and grow. Routes change, roads are added, highways moved, and Rural First makes sure that you are the first know, so you always make it to an emergency as quickly as possible.
