ArcGIS Survey Analyst Adds Depth to City of Toronto's Cadastre

Redlands, California - March 26, 2008 — The City of Toronto, Canada, has chosen ESRI's ArcGIS Survey Analyst software to maintain its survey, parcel, and cadastral data. With the tools and workflow available in the Survey Analyst extension of ArcGIS, the city will manage and continually enhance the accuracy of its cadastre using survey methodologies in a geographic information system (GIS) environment.

"ArcGIS Survey Analyst will enable us to add information to our traditional linear survey data and broaden the value of our cadastre," says Valerie Higgin, manager of geospatial technology and systems for the City of Toronto. "With Survey Analyst, we will be able to maintain our parcels with new and historical detail much like we have with our other datasets, such as addresses and streets, which is crucial to city operations."

ArcGIS Survey Analyst provides a workflow and tools to create, process, maintain, and centrally locate survey and cadastral data in a desktop or enterprise-wide GIS. The latest release of ArcGIS Survey Analyst introduced a new dataset called the Cadastral Fabric and a Cadastral Editor that defines a new workflow. The Cadastral Fabric dataset will become a key part of the city's geodatabase because it delivers a seamless coverage of parcel boundaries and associated survey control free of gaps and overlaps. Cadastral Editor will give the city the ability to add new parcels from subdivision plans, split parcels, add survey control points, and improve the spatial position of parcels without changing the original survey record data stored in the GIS database.

The addition of Survey Analyst to the City of Toronto's ArcGIS software-based Integrated Geospatial Environment (IGE) will streamline maintenance of more than 600,000 existing parcels, improve information exchange among city divisions, and elevate government services to Toronto's 2.3 million citizens.

City employees, as well as the public, can access and query parcel information from the city's Web site at
