Share Your Geocoding Creativity and Win

MapAIRA has launched a geocoding contest! This contest is to incentivize participation in SmartyStreets, the no-cost address cleansing and geocoding service available to all IIS programs.

The contest will award a gift card to use toward a team lunch, a letter, and certificate of recognition to the IIS team that creates the most innovative map and/or data visualization using geocoded IIS data through SmartyStreets. The winner will be announced at the 2018 AIRA National Meeting.

Programs may submit up to three entries. Entries will be judged by a neutral panel of judges selected from the AIRA membership. The contest deadline is Friday, July 20.

Full contest details are available here.

New Version of AART

AIRA’s Measurement for Assessment and Certification Advisory Workgroup (MACAW) has launched a new version of the Aggregate Analysis Reporting Tool, or AART, the tool used to share results of the IIS Measurement and Improvement Initiative. Use your existing AART username and password to log in or click the "Register" button to sign up.

The new dashboard allows Admin Users to set participation and sharing settings in advance for Transport Validation, which will roll out next month. For an optimal user experience, it is recommended that you use the latest versions of either Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, or Chrome when using AART. 

Want to know more about the new version of AART?

Please direct feedback or questions to Kristi Siahaya.
