Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $165,173)

This award will provide funding for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to develop three dimensional geocoding technology, using GPS collected data. The project would use a 3D Geometric Network Model for structures that is a direct extension of the 2D model used for street address matching. A 3D extension to the 2D geocoding process will be developed to provide indoor route and map generation capabilities. The project would involve developing the 3D network model and geocoding extension, and testing it with building-specific data collected for a portion of Charlotte, North Carolina that includes many large commercial and residential buildings, with the evaluation done in cooperation with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
