The problem that many communities face when it comes to their workflow around imagery and operations is the lack of access to data. In the past, data has been locked within the interface of a few staff members in a GIS department, requiring specialized software to retrieve it. Furthermore, larger file formats and data stores make accessing imagery even more challenging.

MapGeo aims to address these challenges by providing an easy-to-use, cloud-based application that can be accessed by anyone within the organization at any time. They have integrated Google technology and features from Cardo to create a user-friendly interface that is familiar to many users. This approach allows for efficient data access and reduces the learning curve associated with new software.

EagleView, a leader in aerial oblique imagery, has partnered with MapGeo to bring high-resolution and detailed imagery to local governments. They have invested heavily in new platforms and technologies to collect and deliver the best content to their customers. With EagleView’s imagery, users can access unprecedented detail, including 360-degree views of properties. This level of detail allows for better decision-making and improved workflows.

One of the key advantages of the MapGeo and EagleView integration is the ability to overlay imagery with other data layers. This feature opens up a variety of use cases and workflows across different departments. One department that greatly benefits from this integration is the tax and assessing department.

Tax assessors often struggle with limited resources and tight budgets. With the combination of MapGeo’s parcel functionality and EagleView’s oblique imagery, tax assessors can perform more assessments remotely. This eliminates the need for physical inspections and reduces logistical challenges. Additionally, using oblique imagery in tax assessments is in compliance with industry standards, allowing assessors to leverage technology to perform their work efficiently.

In conclusion, the integration of EagleView oblique imagery with the MapGeo platform brings numerous benefits to local governments. It improves GIS applications by providing easy access to high-quality imagery, allowing for better decision-making and more efficient workflows. The integration is particularly significant for tax and assessing departments, as it enables remote assessments and streamlines operations. With MapGeo and EagleView, local governments can leverage technology to enhance their operations and deliver better services to their constituents.
