GIS Revisited

by @ 10:12 am. Filed under Website, Technology

Back in the summer of 2005, we had high hopes of partnering with MassGIS, the state’s geographic information system agency, to integrate mapping and overhead photography with registry records. Some bureaucratic obstacles frustrated those efforts, but we’re going to give it another try. November 15 of this year is national GIS Day, so we will try to use that as a catalyst to revive our integration efforts. Our concept is that when you view a record on the registry website, we’d like a new button to appear that says something like “view imagery.” By pressing the button, a new window would open on your computer showing the overhead photo of the property the record you were viewing was associated with. This is just one example of how different government agencies might share and link data to better serve the public.
