March 18, 2008 -- St. Charles, IL – The Sidwell Company has been selected to provide GIS professional services to Santa Fe County, NM. Specifically, Sidwell will be converting the County’s GIS from an existing coverage format to the tagged data model in ESRI’s Geodatabase data format; installing, configuring and versioning ArcGIS® Server; implementing the Parcel Builder map maintenance solution; and providing focused ArcMap® and Parcel Builder training. Sidwell’s Parcel Builder-Administrator software module will also be installed, which will enable the County to generate state-mandated unique parcel codes (UPCs) from the GIS.
As part of this project, Manatron has also been selected to provide CAMA software, with which Sidwell will integrate the GIS. In addition, Sidwell will design an interactive GIS website for the converted cadastral data and provide a fully integrated component with the CAMA software—including a one-page interface with an interactive map and access to related CAMA records in the County’s system. Designed as an open access data portal available to the public and to local government agencies, the GIS website will meet Santa Fe County’s goals of having a GIS portal with user-friendly query and reporting tools.
