September 14, 2009 -- St. Charles, IL - Campbell County, located in the northeast corner of the state of Wyoming, covers an area of 4,761 square miles, or roughly 3 million acres. The County had an established GIS program, and was in search of a solution that would allow them to streamline their cadastral maintenance workflow and provide tighter integration to their CAMA system. They also recognized their need for enhanced tools for parcel maintenance within ESRI’s ArcGIS®. Campbell County selected The Sidwell Company to help them enhance their workflow by introducing the tagged geodatabase model, and provide the necessary level of integration between their GIS data and their CAMA system.
To accomplish this goal, Sidwell will convert the County’s existing geodatabase into the tagged geodatabase model, which focuses on the coincident boundaries of cadastral data. Also as part of this project, Sidwell will implement and train County personnel on Parcel Builder™, the industry-acclaimed suite of software developed by Sidwell for the specific purpose of creating and maintaining cadastral maps. Parcel Builder is compliant with ArcGIS 9.3.1, and extends the functionality of ESRI’s ArcGIS software platform by introducing over 40 tools to improve GIS-based land records workflows.
According to GIS Program Coordinator Cathy Raney, “The work performed by the Assessor’s office involved moving between several different software programs as they create new parcels in AutoCAD, enter ownership data into CAMA, and then publish it to the GIS. Sidwell’s Parcel Builder software was a cinch for Campbell County because it brings all the tools of the different programs together in one package, and allows the Assessor’s staff to streamline their work and ensure data accuracy because they’re able to move so seamlessly among them.”
