Belgrade, ME GIS Conversion and Online GIS Hosting

Belgrade, ME recently contracted with CAI Technologies to perform a digital conversion of their Tax Maps and implement our online GIS platform.  Funding for the project was made possible through use of ARPA funds the Town received.  CAI began by first digitizing the Town’s existing Tax Maps to overlay the most currently available orthoimagery.  The newly created GIS data was then updated and linked with the Town’s Trio Assessment database.  Following the conversion, CAI setup and configured AxisGIS for the Town.  AxisGIS is an easy to use yet powerful online mapping service developed/hosted by CAI and is currently contracted in over 500 communities.  AxisGIS will make the Town’s map/GIS layers and Trio Assessment data available to Staff and the public through a powerful and searchable mapping interface.  Within the Staff only site, CAI setup and configure our Advanced Query module and Document Upload Tool.  The Advanced Query module will allow Staff users to create custom queries based on attributes available from linked database tables or GIS data layers.  The Town will use the Document Upload tool to link documents to a parcel and designate them for access by staff only, or the public.
