December 02, 2009 -- Carroll County, Virginia is blazing new trails with the launch of its new Online GIS Viewer, a website that makes it easy to access countywide property maps and information. The following link provides access to the Online GIS Viewer:
“With the completion of development of County digital parcel, streets, and right-of-way maps last year, we were looking for ways to make the data easily accessible,” said Jane Harrison, County Assessor. “Working with Applied Geographics, we were able to design the site the way we wanted. County offices will now have access to a variety of data layers and capabilities, such as property search tools, coordinate-based search, automated identification of abutters, printable maps on demand, and the ability to mark up the map view.”
“This new web site will allow county offices, real estate and other business sectors, and the public to have self-service access to property and geographic data,” said County Administrator Gary Larrowe. “The website reflects our commitment to expanding the availability of information resources that will benefit the County, its residents and business community.”
“The website is a natural extension of the effort to complete the property data layer undertaken by the County staff,” said Heather Cabral, GISP, AppGeo Project Manager. “An advantage is that it can grow to accommodate other data that the County develops such as soils, fire districts, and school districts to meet additional County needs for geographic analysis and mapping.”
AppGeo will host the application for the County from its secure hosting facility. Custom Web application development and secure, long-term Web hosting are core businesses of AppGeo, and AppGeo currently hosts applications for dozens of clients in more than 5 states. AppGeo maintains a staff of full-time GIS programmers who are dedicated to innovation and state-of-the-art custom solutions.
