The Department of Emergency Services' (DES) Base Map Project is designed to support the needs of 9-1-1 in the state and was developed in partnership with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and GeoComm.  The DES Base Map Project began with a pilot project in November 2009. The DOT used their aircraft to collect statewide the .9-foot pixel resolution aerial photography from November 2009 through November 2013.  The DOT processed that imagery and used that imagery to develop the road centerlines.  GeoComm added addressing and other attributes to the road centerlines and developed address points.  More information can be found in the GeoComm press release
