ICW Introduces Real-Time

Mapping for Use With


ICWAVL©, powered by MapX, offers real-time mapping for both in vehicle navigation and field data acquisition. The system creates a crumb trail as the operator drives along the roadway. A user definable center line offset allows the operator to travel in their lane and draw the center of the road.

Designed for ease-of-use, one can manage display layers such as roads, railroads, water, political boundaries, etc. to create a moving map display of local geography. The vehicle that ICWAVL© is tracking remains anchored in the center of the map display while the map data used in the display scrolls using a Global Positioning System (GPS).

ICWAVL© is an integrated solution for the elections office. A major benefit in this design is the consistency of the data that appears in the mobile unit and the desktop mapping system.

required by HAVA. The FVRS will rely solely
on the Supervisors of Elections for its
geographical information component”.

ICW Enhances

GeoCoding to Include

House Number Suffix

GeoCoding can offer location accuracy to the roof top or parcel centroid with the use of ICW’s GeoPoints and the geocoder included with GeoElections.

With this latest enhancement the user has four options for geocoding voters. The user may geocode to the road using house number, street name and ZIP5. Or use house number, street name and ZIP5 with GeoPoints for more precise placement. GeoPoints offers two additional data elements for voter addressing: a field for apartment, unit or any secondary address; and now the use


of ½ or any other house number suffix that you may find in your community.
