The Sidwell Company to Provide Agricultural Assessment Solution to Eddy County, ND

June 06, 2008 -- St. Charles, IL – The Sidwell Company is providing digital agricultural parcel file development services to Eddy County, North Dakota, to aid the jurisdiction’s assessment officials in efficiently calculating soils valuations for agricultural parcels to meet new state-mandated agricultural assessment standards. Specifically, Sidwell is developing a digital GIS parcel file for all of the county’s agricultural parcels, along with the soils map layer, Common Land Unit modifier layer, and associated attribute tables. Soils computations services will then be performed using Sidwell’s Farmland Assessment and Report Management System (FARMS™)—an ESRI ArcGIS®-compliant software solution for agricultural assessments.

Additionally, Sidwell is providing shared on-site training in a centralized location to Eddy County, along with the North Dakota counties of Foster, Kidder, Ramsey and Towner, who have also contracted for agricultural assessment services, to help defray the costs of this project component for each jurisdiction. The specialized training program will focus on the use of the FARMS™ software extension within ArcGIS® 9.2, covering basic operations for processing agricultural parcels, all processing and reporting tools in the system, and user customizations within the reporting application. Implementation of this project also includes the installation and configuration of FARMS™ at Eddy County for continued use and maintenance of the agricultural database.
