Can blue light actors find the right place in your municipality?

For Sweden's blue light actors, the map is an important work tool. Map and positioning are used both at the emergency center and in emergency vehicles to quickly get to the place where assistance is required. In the event of an emergency, it is very important that support systems work and display the correct information.

The data collected nationally in collaboration must be a reliable source for the information needed. Chain jan for the collection and provision of geographic information consists of a variety of individuals efforts and a chain is not stronger than its weakest link.

Everyone in the chain jan must understand their mission to ensure that the right information is in the right place when the blue light actor does his job. Delays or gaps in the update process can mean that process chain jan is missing and that information missing or showing the wrong way.

Which geodata is covered and what are the requirements?

Blåljuskollen contains objects and phenomena identified by the blue light actors that are important in order to be able to find the right one. It includes information on addresses, buildings, facilities, names of places, roads and railways that are included in collaboration with Lantmäteriet and the Swedish Transport Administration.

The purpose of the requirements is that geodata must be current, complete and correct. It is about quick updating when new data needs to be registered, but also about existing information being corrected or deleted if necessary. This presupposes that you have control over your processes and know who does what and when. It is about e.g. also that you have an appropriate naming and addressing.

The assessment includes both processes and geodata

To ensure that geodata is handled in the best way at your own municipality, processes are needed for collection and updating are reviewed so that they are documented by the municipality and that the division of responsibilities is clear.

There must be no risk of updating being forgotten, falling between chairs or being done with insufficient competence. Update intervals and lead times must provide sufficient timeliness based on the requirements placed on geodata.

Geodata needs to be current and of a sufficiently high quality. Quality is assessed on the basis of standard quality parameters, completeness, correct data structure according to instructions and rules, correct (eg spelling) and reasonable attribute values as well as position accuracy. The parameters that are important are stated for each type of information.
