Elevating an Enterprise GIS

Introduction Nestled in the Rocky Mountains at approximately 8,200 feet above sea level, the Town of Snowmass Village is comprised of a medium density, mixed used, and transit-oriented core surrounded by suburban residential neighborhoods and open space. Over 35 miles of maintained hiking and biking trails and 150 miles of ski trails contribute to the […]

Preserving Parcel Data with Progressive Technology

The old fashioned way of making and updating maps just isn’t cutting it anymore. It is far too time consuming and potentially inaccurate due to manual entry. GIS has reduced the time needed to complete mapping tasks by more than 90 percent, and the result is a better product. With modern technology, land management with GIS enables data to be updated quickly, embellished by tools and data that are accurate for survey data. Cadastral data including land ownership parcels are a core base map layer for local government GIS implementations.  The initial design of the parcel database and subsequent deployment of the developed data model is critical in order to provide a fully functional and comprehensive representation of land ownership boundaries. Taking an existing client’s data and migrating it to the parcel fabric is one of GTG’s many services, including GIS training and integration with other systems as needed.

In addition to the software and training, database design and development is essential to running a successful land management solution. GIS implementation wouldn’t be successful without integration of data to the new system and training on maintenance.
