OGI COMPLETES JONES COUNTY


jones_county-1.jpgGIS from the ground up.
OGInfo.com, LLC, (OGI) a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services and products company has completed all GIS mapping for the Jones County Appraisal District. OGI utilized their team of GIS Professionals and Data Specialists to electronically map the county using state-of-the-art computer aided mapping, historical cartography and geo-rectified satellite imagery.
The process was extensive and involved going from some electronic drawings, legacy maps and legal descriptions to data conversion, scanning paper images to digital and to the deed research. Then, all digital drawings were geo-referenced (aligned) to aerial images and parcel lines drawn to create shape files then attached to the appraisal tax roll.  
OGI then used all of this newly created GIS data to design, produce and host their online county map.  This extremely accurate and up-to-date digital map is available on the web and freely accessible around the clock. The new Jones County FastMap is loaded with custom GIS layers like: roads, parcel lines, abstracts, water bodies, rail roads, 10m DEMs(topo lines), NexRad, school districts and aerials are available to the public over the Internet to explore.

This newly completed Jones county interactive map allows users to search and browse high-accuracy land data and geo-rectified aerial images over the entire county. One of the benefits to office of the County Appraiser will be to greatly reduce the amount of foot traffic in the Jones County Appraisal District office. Free access to this map will enable all fastmap_logos125x69.jpgappraisal district employees and residents of Jones County to check the appraisal value of their property, identify names and addresses of other property owners and identify all jurisdictional boundaries. The systems and data provided by OGI will also enable the appraisal district office to more quickly respond with completeness and increased accuracy to information requests from the public.  This new online map will also save time and money on updates, map retrievals, acreage or irregular shape calculations, property identifications with map zoom in and up-to-date aerials.

OGI is located in Corpus Christi, Texas and provides comprehensive mapping services to local, state and federal government along with all sectors of the conventional and renewable energy business.

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY - NEW SERVICE PROVIDED BY OGI

Aerial Imagery in many forms is advantageous for many organizations and industries. Some of aerial photography’s uses are: checking a right-of-way, scouting a potential well site, property valuation analysis, emergency response, planning and development, etc. Regardless of uses, Orthophotography and Oblique Imagery are two types of aerial imagery used today and following is a brief description differentiating them.


An orthophoto or orthophotograph (orthagonal) is an aerial photograph, taken looking straight down, geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") such that the scale is uniform and they can be used as a map. The photo has the same lack of distortion as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the earth's surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.

Oblique image with Parcel lines projectedOblique Imagery
is aerial photography that is captured at approximately 45 degree angle with the ground. The angle which is inherent to oblique imagery allows viewers to see and measure not only the top of objects but the sides as well. Oblique Imagery more closely resembles how people normally view their landscape compared to traditional orthagonal (straight down) imagery. The oblique photographs show buildings, infrastructure, and land from all sides.

Aerial Photography at a Glance:  OGI's collection technology supports both types of imagery with one mission. GEOVISTA® camera systems for light aircraft contain five digital cameras pointing forward, back, right, left and down. Imagery from the nadir camera can be ortho-rectified to create a seamless result meeting 1” – 50’ map accuracy with 4” pixels. In a single flight, enough imagery is captured to offer 360° viewing of 12 to 24 different oblique views of every location with a pixel resolution of 3” to 6” providing a tremendous amount of visual detail.**Ref: OGI's image partner, GEOSPAN.com

High Resolution OrthographBy flying the area, whether it is for a potential location, appraisal, or inspection of facilities, this procedure will eliminate “boots on the ground” in most all applications.  Think of the savings and not to mention that the safety liabilities will be all gone using this method.  No more vehicle maintenance, terrain hazards of people on foot, etc.  Scouting locations can be completed from a birds eye view, accurately and efficiently. Does your staff know what is on the other side of that entry gate, locked behind miles of game fence?  Could be a cabin, could be a mansion.  We can fly your county and give you that information.  Information concerning square footage of structures can be delivered quickly and accurately.

OGI is proud to offer aerial photography services. OGI’s customer base is mostly comprised of state and local governments, which use images of cities and or counties for planning and development, emergency response and property assessment, but the service can easily extend to insurance, real estate, civil engineering, and utilities, amongst many other industries.

HOW GIS CAN PAY ITS OWN WAY

“A quick study of the cost benefit model related to GIS use in county parcel data”

By, James H. Davis,

OGInfo.com, LLC

February 5, 2010,

In Texas, local appraisal districts are tasked with keeping track of surface ownership, related improvements, commercial and industrial improvements, oil and gas assets and personal property. These efforts are all focused on market values for tax appraisal purposes. The discussion and bullet points below are designed to point out how the use of GIS will pay for itself.

We start with the way parcel maps are created, used and maintained if they are still in the analog (paper) stage. Since Texas appraisal districts are fairly new government entities, the range of different types of paper maps are as diverse as the counties themselves. Many counties have relied on the old style oil and gas maps that have been used in the energy sector since Spindletop. There are many counties who have acquired complete copies of former ASCS map sets, which are large black and white aerials affixed to hardboard backing for durability. There are also many counties who have developed their own “block” type maps, which use a scaled down county map with a block grid to refer the user to a particular plat with more detail.

Drawing and updating these maps within the appraisal district is a slow and tedious process if they are updated at all. When tracts are resurveyed or when a tract is split into two or more tracts, local mappers must follow metes and bounds to have the tract(s) properly represented on the map. Generally speaking, a small to midsized county has to establish at least one and possibly two full time positions to keep their paper maps up to date. Moving to GIS will not eliminate these positions as the cost savings related to the use of GIS really comes in with those who use them. The points below represent the differences in using paper versus GIS:

PAPER: Appraiser, clerks and related staff do not have ready access to maps and must stop what they are doing and engage the mapping department when there is a map needed. This slows their productivity as well as the mappers’ productivity.

GIS: With GIS distributed throughout the office, staff will have ready access to maps at all times and therefore will gain efficiencies because of that access.

PAPER: Paper maps keep the maps centralized and not distributed. An appraiser must consult a mapping department when going out in the field. Should that appraiser need additional maps to complete their task, they must drive all the way back in to the central office.  

GIS:
Again, with GIS distributed throughout the office and even in the field, appraisers will not be required to continually consult the mapping department. Field appraiser would also have the capability to arm themselves with this data on a laptop, which would make them much more efficient in planning and executing their daily fieldwork.

PAPER: Paper maps of parcel data are single layer maps therefore they do not allow for users to overlay other layers as needed. Should another layer, such, as flood plain, zoning, neighborhood codes, etc. need to be overlaid for appraisal purposes, this must be done manually. Manually calculating acreage on irregular shapes is time consuming and costly.

GIS: One of the primary strengths of GIS is its ability to handle multiple layers, therefore giving the organization the capability to do simple or complex geospatial analysis with speed and accuracy.

PAPER: Changing values and/or classifications of parcels in a particular geographic region takes a tremendous amount of time when compared to how it’s handled using GIS.

GIS: Examples of this would be the need to select an irregularly shaped grouping of properties for appraisal adjustments. Done manually this would be time tedious and time consuming.

PAPER: Utilizing paper maps as it relates to servicing the needs of land professionals, surveyors, appraisers and other researchers creates a bottleneck in a counties mapping department and often times leads to maps being misplaced and/or worn out.

GIS: The use of GIS will allow the county to publish their parcel data online, thus allowing easy access to land professionals to research without the need to come down to the appraisal district office and utilize their staff in assisting. With GIS data on a CD the appraisal district would then create another revenue stream by providing this data pursuant to Open Records Request.

PAPER: Other entities within a county could also utilize GIS for cost savings within their own departments.

GIS: Sheriff’s departments would be able to see who the property owners are within their own patrol units on their “heads up” display. School districts would be able to better schedule school bus routes and determine with ease whether a student is “in district” or not. 911 departments would be more efficient in dispatching medical emergency calls since they would have exact home locations. Cities utilize this data as well when doing notifications pursuant to rezoning request, etc.

SUMMARY: Large and medium sized counties and cities throughout the United States have adopted the use of GIS over the years for one simple reason and that is “cost savings”. Many of the functions carried out by large counties and cities in today’s modern world would be virtually impossible without the use of GIS.


Small to mid-sized counties have been slow to adopt GIS due primarily to the cost of entry and the sheer fact that they would have to outsource the initial parcel or polygon creation job and would be faced with a large one time budget item. Local culture plays a role too in slow adoption of GIS in that the old saying, “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” applies in many cases. Generally speaking, people are resistant to change, and that is understood when the ideal of going GIS is discussed.

LIDAR AND VEGETATION MANAGEMENT

In 2003 around 50 million people in North America and Canada were without power when a tree fell on a transmission line knocking out several circuits. In order to prevent another massive blackout the National Electric Reliability Council (NERC) established standards (FAC-003-01) in order to prevent future cascading blackouts. According to NERC their goal is to, “have not one, but consecutive quarters with no vegetation management violations and vegetation-related transmission outages.” The number of outages caused from grow-ins was reduced from 11 to 5 in the third quarter from 2007 to 2008, and overall there was a reduction from 16 outages to 11 outages from grow-ins. One active method that the electric industry is using to patrol their lines is Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging). By using an airborne Lidar system electric utilities can monitor their lines for potentially dangerous vegetation and ensure their compliance with NERC’s FAC-003-01. Lidar uses a laser to gather data points that can be processed using computer programs. The data points are labeled by software using algorithms. Electric Utilities can view the data to find any potential threats to their assets. Since trees and other vegetation will continue to grow and encroach upon power line right of ways power companies must have a vegetation management system in place.

PARCEL DATA - NATIONWIDE PARCEL DATA

Parcel data lies at the core of many applications and analysis. Parcel data allows property characteristics to be mapped and analyzed across an area of interest. OGI's parcel data displays a wealth of information that is associated with properties including valuations, ownership, service areas, environmental factors, and more. Parcel data also enables sophisticated spatial analysis such as proximity, overlay and buffer zone operations. Numerous industries use parcel data in their daily operations, and many are realizing new ways to enhance their capabilities, provide additional services and reduce operating costs.

Both public and private industries find that incorporating parcel data into their daily operations and processes result in enhanced capabilities, additional services and reduced operating costs.

Some of the industries that have found parcel data to be an invaluable resource in their daily operations are as follows:

Financial Services
  > Loan Processing
  > Tax Assignment and Determination
Insurance
  > Underwriting and Claims Management
  > Flood Certification
  > Risk Assessment
Retail, Restaurant and Real Estate
  > Property Information
  > Service Territories
  > Online Mapping Using Aerial Imagery
Utilities/Telecommunications
  > Asset Management
  > Right-of-Way Identification
  > Call-Before-You-Dig Applications and Automated Meter Reading Systems
Government
  > Law Enforcement
  > Homeland Security

USING GPS POINTS WITH ELEVATION DATA

Combining global positioning systems and elevation data is a powerful tool that can be utilized for power line engineering. One task that engineers face when designing power lines is to accurately model real world conditions. Real world conditions must be modeled accurately so engineers can calculate pole loading and ensure system integrity. ogiGRID utilizes state of the art GPS systems that have decimeter accuracy. This data is then combined with elevation data to create real world conditions. Knowing the actual locations of poles with real elevation data allows designers to check conductor clearances. When combined together, GPS and elevation data give engineers an accurate model of real world conditions that they can use to confidently design their power lines from.

NAPE EXPO 2010 - A GREAT SUCCESS!

After two days of greeting and meeting thousands of people and demonstrating the GIS products, services and data that OGI offers, I can honestly say that NAPE was a great success for OGI. The response to our GIS maps and GIS data was very positive.  Most people were amazed at the capabilities of our online GIS mapping system, OGI FastMap, and were equally impressed at the amount of surface ownership data we have.  OGI now offers nationwide parcel data and in Texas has over 130 counties with parcel coverage and fully attributed with tax rolls.  We also have 110 counties with courthouse records online.  Yes, we are doing things with parcel data that no one else is doing, compiling mass quantities of parcels, parcel data, and courthouse records and making it all available to purchase and or putting it on a custom online, browser-based map.

We were asked many times, "did we have seismic data or some other data on our maps." My answer every time was that if we didn't have it and you need it on a map, we could get it or you could supply it and we could then put it on a custom map online for you. Our data-rich OGI FastMap Loaded Plus contains an amazing amount of data including surface ownership, wells & pipeline, roads, railways, flood plains, abstracts and surveys, city limits, water bodies, parks, wildlife refuges, .5m aerial imagery, gulf of Mexico offshore data, drilling units boundaries, digital elevation models and traffic counts. The best response we received from visitors to our booth was regarding the price. Everyone was surprised at how affordable our online map subscriptions are. Just $49.99 for FastMap Loaded and $149.99 for FastMap Loaded Plus.  I could see "the wheels turning" on how much money they could save with such a powerful and easy-to-use online map.  Welcome to the OGI era of GIS mapping and GIS data.
