How Member Mapping Works
Pennsylvania One Call System notification requests have defined excavation sites drawn on maps 99.9% of the time, called the ticket notification area. A facility owner uses Member Mapping to identify where they wish to be notified for locating their underground facilities, referred to as the member notification area.
The Pennsylvania One Call System software compares the ticket notification area against the member notification area to identify which notifications should be transmitted to a facility owner who uses Member Mapping to define their areas.
