The Christian County, MO Assessor’s office has benefited from their recent advancement in the GIS world to offline mode. Assessor’s office field staff can now take live GIS and Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) data into the field with them via laptop or mobile device for work to be conducted on-site without the need of an internet connection.

Inconsistent internet connection from portable wireless internet devices made it difficult for the Christian County Assessor’s office to access GIS data on-site. County administration reached out to Midland GIS Solutions for a way to bypass internet for access to their GIS and CAMA database.

Midland GIS now offers an offline GIS mobile application for counties in order for staff to be more productive than ever before. Work that once consisted of handwritten notes and hours of both field work followed by finishing up in the office can now be accomplished simultaneously with the offline GIS mobile application set up by Midland GIS.

County departments can access their GIS in the field and make the necessary changes or addition while in the offline GIS mobile app.  Updated county GIS data can be quickly synchronized with the mobile devices by connecting the mobile device to the internet.

Christian County utilizes a GPS device for their field crews in order for administration to track all field staff routes in order to maximize daily workflow. Properties can be highlighted according to which staff completed the task to track productivity. Field work includes conducting reports, create and edit permits and much more with split screen access to all available CAMA data.
