Address Points Dataset Initiative

Presently, some states have a downloadable Address Points file (e.g. Arkansas), while others don’t.  An Address Points dataset, coupled with a Well Location database would allow spatial queries such as “Fetch those addresses with X feet of any well’s location.”  This would be a useful feature in the auditing of flowlines that may pass near a any residence’s location, allowing an agency, auditor, journalist, or non-governmental organization (NGO) to verify that audits of the flowlines have been done on a periodic basis as specified by law or regulation, provided that the audit files are made public as well.

As this is a “night-job” task for me, it’s going to take a while for it to happen as my “day-job” allows.
