July 6, 2020 –
After years of maintaining parcel edits on mylar maps, St. Clair County, Missouri staff will now have greater workflow efficiency thanks to a comprehensive GIS program and web-based GIS from Midland GIS Solutions. This project will bring decades of hand-written map edits and the county’s CAMA data into a centralized GIS. This will allow staff to view and maintain all GIS map data in an intuitive GIS interface.
The GIS program will eliminate map edit redundancy and greatly increase efficiencies within the Assessor’s office. The county will have the ability to enter metes and bounds descriptions from deeds or recorded surveys directly into the GIS software to ensure mapping accuracy.
As in every county mapping project, Midland GIS acquired available survey research to assist with data layer development. This method provides a solid foundation for the GIS program to ensure an accurate and long-term solution. Available data in the county’s newly developed GIS will include parcel boundaries, lots, blocks, subdivisions, road centerlines, rights-of-way, water boundaries, city limit, sections, Township & Range boundaries, MoDOT bridge data and FEMA flood data. Property values, legal descriptions, acreage and deed information will also be accessible within the GIS. Additional data layers and functionality can easily be added as necessary.
Midland GIS staff will conduct an on-site training session with St. Clair County. Client training remains a Midland GIS standard to ensure the GIS remains a functional tool for county departments that rely on the most up-to-date information.
