July 14, 2013: The new City of Roanoke GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Application is now live and online. The new implementation developed by SiteVision, Inc. in partnership with city officials, features numerous upgrades, design enhancements and additions to the original citywide mapping and real estate system.
The technology initiative enhances an already robust application environment while providing important, new state-of-the-art mapping detail, reporting and printing functions. The effort provides geographic information to citizens and staff through the Internet, desktop applications, databases and mapping products. It is utilized to enhance existing business systems by providing an easy way to view spatial and other data by geographic location.
SiteVision and city officials worked closely together to integrate the existing system to the now enhanced version. Among improvements, existing web application servers migrated to the more feature-rich ESRI ArcGIS server and Adobe Flex environments. New features include floating, pull-down menus to permit rapid switching between various base maps. The redesigned site also includes Google Map and Google Street views. Comprehensive mapping and real estate information includes property overview, images, assessments, sales history, flooding information, community attributes and incentives. Users may also print a full property report including images.
The Community and Incentive Website Portals, a useful feature previously developed in cooperation with SiteVision, has been incorporated into the enriched site. Community information provides users with a summary of specific neighborhood information including school zones, voter precincts, trash collection, parks and recreation, neighborhoods and libraries. The incentive portal provides a summary of city, state and federal incentive programs available to a specific parcel.
