How to create and use GIS aliases

adminMap Magic > Data

In many cases, your GIS map street names will not match the names in your crash record database. If the difference is significant, (i.e. ArcView can't see them as being similar names) then that location will not be geocodable. This is common when a state highway runs through a city. The city may use a local street name when entering crash data, and the map may use the highway name.

 Manual update / verification required after upgrading from v6.5x to a newer version.

Changes made in version 6.615 require user verification of cross-street data. Note that because the changes only affect cross street ordering associated with the use of aliases, this information only applies to users who have prepared cross street listings using the streets manager. Also, if aliases have never been used, this information does not apply.
