November 26, 2007 -- Smart Data Strategies, Inc. (SDS) announces today that Washoe County (Reno), Nevada has selected SDS for their GIS Data Conversion and Parcel Mapping Application Upgrade Project. The primary goals of the project are to convert the existing assessor tax maps from an ArcInfo workstation based system to an ESRI geodatabase environment and to replace the County Assessor’s outdated map editing tools.
DREAMaps Mapper, SDS’ parcel editing extension to ESRI’s ArcGIS, will be customized to closely match the functionality that exists within the current system while taking advantage of the latest technology to ensure a topologically correct geodatabase. DREAMaps Mapper will provide the county with a complete set of COGO editing tools, methods of capturing parcel history, and quality control tools. In order to greatly streamline the parcel editing process, DREAMaps Mapper will be integrated with the existing CAMA system to reduce duplicate data entry and eliminate orphan creation.
Washoe County will be the second largest DREAMaps Mapper installation in the country behind the City of Phoenix, Arizona.
