Parks and Recreation
New Milford, CT has used MapGeo data views to connect their citizens to information about their local parks and recreation sites.
Albany NY offers great resources for citizens on their MapGeo site including green spaces nearby the selected property.
Precinct Boundaries & Voting Information
Several MapGeo clients have precinct boundaries and voting information including polling places and ballot boxes on their MapGeo sites including some with driving times and walking times to those locations. New Milford, CT is one of those towns with drive and walk time themes.
The City of Pittsfield MA displays road work projects on their MapGeo site. It is a great resource for citizens to find out about road work projects that may affect their neighborhood and the status of those projects. They also have information about street status - another critical piece of information for New England towns and cities.
Going beyond just displaying zoning data Portsmouth NH has information about maximum building heights for different height requirement areas and required facade types. If data like this or some variation of it is important for your town of city then we can help you develop the data and display it on MapGeo.
Add Data Views to MapGeo
Do you have an additional dataset that you would like to search on other than your parcel data. We can set up a data view on your MapGeo site to query on any other dataset.
The Town of West Hartford, CT provides their cemetery plots, lots and burial information to the public to assist with easy identification of burial locations. If you don't have cemetery mapping available, work with AppGeo to create the GIS data, link it up with your burial information, and then publish it to MapGeo.
The Town of Manchester by the Sea, MA has a moorings database which is has point locations of moorings and associated information like owner name, boat type etc. which can be displayed and queried.
Provide information about a property with spatial intersects
We can set up a spatial search on MapGeo such that it will identify other spatial features at a set distance from a property or what features the property lies within. So for example a one mile buffer around a property will return all the nearby greenspaces within that buffer and we can also tell you what "zone" a property falls under. This can be done for any feature as long as we have access to the data.
The City of Albany, NY has linked city greenspace data to their property data so users are able to select a property and see greenspaces within walking distance. The greenspace data includes parks, recreation facilities, community gardens, and more!
Identify Property's Zone
Several MapGeo sites have this information included in the property information panel. You can provide any information about the property with a simple spatial intersect - the trash pickup day, ward, precinct, or zone. The North Andover MA MapGeo site allows you to quickly identify the zone and overlay district on the property information panel even without turning on the theme.
Access Detailed Information with Pop-Ups
Most GIS data has attribute information about the feature that cannot always be displayed on the map. On MapGeo we can include pop-ups which appear on clicking the feature. These pop-ups can display as many attributes as you would like. We can configure it to display all or just a few attributes. This is particularly useful with utility data but can be implemented for any feature.
Pop-Ups on Points
The Town of North Andover MA has pop-ups on Community Preservation Commission Projects providing details about the project
Pop-Ups on Lines
Typical utility features like sewer gravity mains and storm drain lines can also have pop-ups with details. The Town of Northborough has pop-ups on the sewer data.
Link Images & Documents
Original plans typically have a lot of detailed information that might not be captured in the GIS data. This is especially true of utility features. It is possible to make the plans available on MapGeo by linking the plan to the GIS data.
Link Plans to Utility Features
The Town of Chelmsford has made their contract drawings available on their MapGeo site so that town staff do not have to respond to plan requests. Contractors can access them easily on MapGeo.
The Town of Ellington, CT has their drainage and sewer plans linked to the data on MapGeo for easy access to detailed feature information that is not available on MapGeo.
The Town of Cromwell, CT links their Sewer Lateral Cards to the parcel data on MapGeo. In the example below, this particular property has two lateral cards, which is indicated by the "2" in the circle in the Sewer Lateral Group in the property panel.
Development Potential Analyses
In the following buildout analyses, AppGeo was tasked to identify parcels with development potential based on specific criteria set by the town. Some examples include the parcel must: not have a slope greater than X%, not be in the wetlands or a watercourse, not within the flood zone, not be preserver/protected open space or farmland, and be greater than a specific acreage.
