A leader of GIS services and products to preserve 80 years of historical documents using industry standard GIS technology
August 26, 2008 -- Smart Data Strategies, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been selected by the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District to provide a data collection and retrieval system to preserve the District’s historical documents.
The data collection traces the District’s irrigation patterns and includes 1927 and 1941 appraisal sheets, circa 1927 property maps, circa 1940 linen property maps, and 1949 property maps. Most of the documents are unique maps and records that require white glove treatment to maintain document integrity.
Smart Data Strategies will inventory, scan, and index the records, and build a geodatabase to provide a referencing and retrieval system. Smart Data Strategies will utilize DREAMaps™ Doc integrated with ArcGIS to provide GIS linkage and a complete document management solution. Upon project completion, the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District will be able to electronically maintain, store, and analyze over 80 years of geographic information documenting part of their past.
