How are 911 addresses assigned?

We locate each site via GIS mapping and generally measure the distance from the adjacent address to the entrance of the proposed property, assigning 1 number for each 25-feet in rural areas and 5-feet in urban areas. We try to numerically balance in order to reduce potential address changes in the future.
