It all starts with tax mapping. We've been told we have the "best looking maps in the state", according to Jamestown, RI. We'll update your GIS parcel database and then provide new tax maps at the interval that you choose. After each update, we'll publish your new data to your Web GIS site and your Desktop GIS applications so all of your products are kept in sync.
With our Web GIS application, town hall is open 24/7. Our Web GIS provides an interactive GIS map and current assessment information to both the public and city employees. It includes easy to use tools for printing maps, exporting images, and generating abutters notification lists. Additionally, our web GIS features an area for downloading your latest official tax maps and zoning maps in PDF format, and can also link to documents, online forms, permitting software, and other vendors you may be working with.
Our Desktop GIS application for municipalities is a great way to distribute GIS maps and data to everyone in your organization. Designed with the non-GIS professional in mind, it is easy to use and allows users to create their own maps and add their own GIS layers. Search, query, and reporting tools are included, as well as an abutters notification tool that will generate a set of mailing labels for each selected property owner. While it is ESRI®-compatible, our Desktop GIS is completely stand-alone and requires no additional licensing.
Our plug-ins and extensions for ArcGISTM will make life easier for your GIS users. Anyone using ArcGISTM will enjoy Parcel and Address Search Tools, an Abutters Notification Tool for creating mailing lists, Query Tools, and MainStreetMapbooks for producing a map book or map series with just a few clicks of the mouse. Many of these tools are available right here as a free download.
Our Desktop GIS application is also designed for use as a public GIS kiosk. A public computer, dedicated to GIS, allows any visitor to town hall the ability to browse GIS data, print their own maps, and generate their own abutters notification lists.
Permitting / Online Documents and Forms
Our online Permitting Application integrates with our Web GIS so that users can submit documents and forms for a selected property. Town employees can build their own forms with ease and then the public or other employees can fill them out and submit them online. Once a document or form has been submitted it goes into a workflow for employees to comment on, assign a status, or pass over to another department for review.
Online Property Information
As a part of our Web GIS, we offer a full property record card or "field card" that shows current assessment information for the selected property. If you are already paying for just online property information hosting, consider switching to MainStreetGIS where you'll get both products in one.
MainStreetGIS functions as an off-site, on-demand GIS Coordinator, saving towns money while providing a much needed service. We utilizes a simple yet powerful online project management system that enables each town employee to view the status of the town-wide GIS endeavor, post messages, download files, and assign to-do lists. It is a great tool that we offer to all of our clients and is vital to keeping your GIS on track.
The annual cost for our complete suite of GIS products and services may be similar to your current tax map maintenance cost. If so, you'll gain Web GIS, Desktop GIS, and more from MainStreetGIS for no additional cost. If you are already paying for online property information with a non-GIS vendor, consider switching to our consolidated GIS system that offers Web GIS mapping and Online Property Information in one complete product.
