- Sidwell captured over 60,000 documents (almost 200 GB) of maps, plats and other legal documents that were used to construct the countywide parcel layer.
- Through the source documents provided by the county, Sidwell positioned over 2,500 GPS control points in state plane coordinates. This information was very helpful in tying down locations, establishing a framework for nearby parcels and building the Parcel Fabric data model. Several other key, and interesting, source documents were the “Bingham Maps” that mapped many of the original parts of the county.
- Many original source documents, like the maps shown here, were used in conjunction with recorded surveys and plats. These documents helped Sidwell identify, locate and inventory all ownership properties within the county.
- For all parcels, Sidwell placed an accuracy value based upon how that parcel was constructed. This is be used by the county for defending assessment values.
- The Parcel Fabric has been implemented with the county’s Local Government Information Model (LGIM) and CAMA system.
- Streamlined efforts allow for dynamic joining of new parcel data and CAMA attributes. The county can take advantage of simple geoprocessing routines to keep this data current and be easier to publish across the jurisdiction.
- The county now has complete faith that the data being consumed by its users is accurate and reliable.
- Because of the efforts to modernize the GIS, the county can take full advantage of Esri’s solution templates.
- An example of this is the public tax viewer that utilizes the data from the LGIM.
