Minneosta Department of Commerce map presentation

  1. 1. Telephone Exchange Boundary Mapping What comes next??? October 10, 2013
  2. 2. Paper maps ◦ organized by county ◦ incorporated all boundary changes up to the digital boundary mapping project in the first half of 2013 Digital maps that existed prior to 2013 were not official
  3. 3.   November 6, 2012, FCC Order requires all companies to provide digital exchange boundary maps to help implement its USF/ICC Transformation Order February 26, 2013, the FCC clarifies that each ILEC must either: ◦ certify and submit data on its service area boundaries; or ◦ allow a state entity to submit and certify the data on its behalf.
  4. 4. The ILECs and state worked together to create digital maps verified by the companies in 1st half of 2013 On June 26, 2013, the Minnesota Commission: 1) accepted new digital maps as Minnesota’s official maps 2) approved maps for submission to the FCC 3) Clarified that disputes and any map changes must receive Commission approval MnGeo and Commerce submitted and certified all boundary area data by June 28, 2013 to comply with the FCC requirement.
  5. 5.  FCC requires: ◦ submission of updated boundary data by March 15 of each year, showing any changes made by December 31 of the previous year. ◦ all study area boundary data to be recertified every two years.
  6. 6. 1) Have the state submit any boundary changes and certify that the exchange boundaries it submits are accurate 2) Submit own boundary data and certify that it is accurate For any ILEC-submitted boundaries the FCC will provide states with a map of the ILEC submission and seek state input on any overlaps, void areas or disputes.
  7. 7.   Same approach as the initial boundary submission. The Department and MnGeo have entered a new interagency agreement to assist the industry in meeting the FCC Requirement for 2014.
  8. 8.   Identify and Implement Needed Updates to the Mapping Application Support the Web-based Telephone Exchange Service
  9. 9.    Review all ILEC suggested boundary changes Make needed changes to the GIS data, with assistance from MnGeo as needed Work closely with MnGeo staff to prepare and submit shapefiles to the FCC
  10. 10.   Continue review of boundaries and proposals by neighbors to change boundaries, using the web application as a discussion medium. Work to resolve boundary conflicts with adjacent service providers.  Reflect where agreement is reached on the web map  Bring disagreements that cannot be resolved to Commerce where paper maps will be referenced
  11. 11.  November 4, 2013: Participating ILECs to receive email stating responsibilities and updated user guide.  November 4, 2013 to January 10, 2014: ILEC’s will review exchange boundary lines.  November 4, 2013 to January 31, 2014: Commerce make boundary changes and address disputes.  March 14, 2014: Commerce and MnGeo will submit shape file and metadata to FCC
