Why use Member Mapping? from Pennsylvania 811 on Vimeo.
Member Mapping from Pennsylvania One Call System, Inc. is designed specifically for members who do not have the resources for an internal GIS or CAD system. For members who do have internal GIS or CAD systems, the call center can import your center-line files for notification areas, bypassing and streamlining the effort to draw notification areas on a municipality by municipality basis.
By drawing polygons on a map, a member can indicate where they would like to be notified within a municipality where they own and operate underground facilities and digging occurs.
