Mountain CAD developed a GIS based property management system that linked GIS maps to the company accounting system.
The City of Charleston acquired the services of Mountain CAD to aid them in building a Strategic Plan and Pilot Project for city wide GIS Implementation. Existing AutoCAD drawings were converted to ArcView. Aerial photos were included as well as tax parcels from the Kanawha County Assessors office. These ArcView maps were linked with a replication of the county’s CAMA data. An ArcIMS Real Estate and parcel application was created for the World Wide Web. This application can be viewed at //gis.mtncad.com. A thematic mapping and zoning notification application based on ArcView was also created.
For several years Cabell County maintained their tax maps in a McIntosh based system called MapGraphix. Realizing the limitation of this system and wanting to move to true GIS the county hired Mountain CAD to convert these maps to an AutoCAD system.
Using ArcGis software from ESRI and Map Server software from the University of Minnesota, Mountain CAD has setup the first accurate model of coal reserves for a WV County. The WV Geological and Economic Survey and the department of Tax and revenue provided data. This data consisted of 28 coal seams in Raleigh County and all surface parcels in the county.
Using this system the county assessor can now ensure fair coal taxation for all property owners in the county.
