CGIS is providing geographic information systems (GIS), data mining, and application development services to lending organizations across the southeast. Our services are supporting marketing and appraisal departments in ways never before imagined, and perhaps most importantly freeing up human resources within the organization allowing them to redirect that work effort and leverage the data and information now being provided by CGIS.As providers of financial services, including loans for real estate, agriculture, rural homes, equipment, buildings and commercial operations, these organizations are very interested in tracking ownership of everything from large acreage tracts of land to smaller tracts that are classified agricultural. Information about such tracts of land, including those that have been sold in the last few years, is available to the public, but is often very time-consuming to find and extract into a format that is usable.
Completed tasks include the design of physical data models around required property search information, building SQL Server databases around those physical data models for storing the property search information, and developing and implementing Web-based portals for accessing, querying and analyzing the property search information. Our data portals are secure, contain a map window for displaying property location and condition, and provide critical ownership information to both marketing and appraisal personnel.
CGIS is also providing GIS support to meet specific needs within the appraisal departments of these organizations. Appraisers must keep a record of properties used for comparable sales and properties offered as collateral for a specific mortgage. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of available spatial information that if accessible can prove beneficial to their day-to-day business processes, making them more efficient in the use of their time and thus a greater asset within the organization. CGIS is responsible for master GIS map documents, including base map data, property feature and attribute data management, derivation of new feature and attribute data, and spatial data analysis (e.g. buffering, proximity analysis). Master map documents and associated spatial and tabular data is updated and distributed at regular time intervals to those who are authorized to use it.
Other GIS services being provided by CGIS include GIS interoperability, GIS training in the use of open source GIS software, and Web-based mapping solutions.
