Integrating Document Imaging with GIS for Land Management
Track: State and Local Government
Author(s): Natalie M Runyan, Jeffrey A Hecht, David M Frye
The New Mexico State Land Office has been managing about 13 million acres for more than 100 years to generate revenues for public institutions. GIS has been an invaluable tool for assembling and assimilating data from various sources into our land-based business process. This year we solved the challenge of integrating our GIS with more than 100 years of paper-based business. We will demonstrate a system that links document images with GIS, enabling a user to select documents and return maps or select map features and return documents. The process of building the system will also be reviewed.
