GIS and the Appraisal Office

A GIS (geographic information system) provides, in part, a visual representation of land development. The goal of land development is the creation of multiple and unique parcels allowing for a variety of uses (e.g. residential housing, retail, industrial, institutional, parkland, roadway infrastructure, etc). 

We can demonstrate the value of a specialized geographic information system and offer practical knowledge relative to the 'how' and 'why' to incorporate a system into your appraisal office. It provides visualization of real estate parcel attributes including size, shape, topography, location, and more. We are not techies by any stretch of the imagination, so we cannot help with technical aspects. However, we have been developing and refining a system for over ten years. It saves time, increases efficiency, and reduces costs.

A geographic information system can be developed and implemented for any county or political subdivision that has accessible digital parcel maps.

Here is our resume on the matter.

  • Extensive experience with ArcView 3.2, a geographic information system software.

  • Developed and implemented a searchable real estate parcel database system through integration of multiple datasets such as property transfers, building records, MLS information, topographical and aerial maps, flood zone and census maps, sewer and water line delineations, and soil maps.

  • Consolidated information for real estate analysis and appraisal to a single viewpoint, thereby eliminating the need to reference multiple data sources.

  • Use of a geographic information system for statistical subdivision analysis (central tendencies, ranges, market absorption).
