Road Centerline Data Standard for Minnesota

The purpose of this standard is to provide a single, commonly accepted set of attribute specifications (field name, type, length, and order) for transferring and aggregating road centerline data in Minnesota for a wide variety of purposes. It is intended to be used when data are being transferred between organizations. Its use will improve the ability to share data resources by reducing incompatibilities when acquiring, processing and disseminating road centerline data.

This standard integrates the Metro Regional Centerlines Collaborative (MRCC v. 1.7) Standard and key attributes identified by the NG9-1-1 Standards Workgroup.

Public Review of Draft Version 1.1

Four elements have been added to this standard to help facilitate the implementation of NextGen 9-1-1 systems by providing backward compatibility with legacy map displays and Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems; these elements are in the 911 Elements section on page 21 of the draft standard document. A new road cartographic class element has also been added (page 18), and there are minor wording edits to improve clarity.
