EDGE_Proposed1

Lincoln County, Arkansas has been using EFS’s EDGE as their One County Map since October of 2014.  Lincoln County Officials recently decided to make their EDGE GIS Mapping site available to the Public.  The below is taken from their website announcing the release:

Lincoln County residents can search through a wealth of county information in one centralized location.  The county’s GIS (Map) data is available to the public the instant it is created or updated by way of the EDGE (GIS site).  The mapping (GIS) program was a joint effort between the county and EFS GeoTechnologies of Monticello.  The map program contains a wide array of data concerning parcels and ownership, addresses, flood zones, fire districts, utility territories, and school districts just to mention a few of the more than 40 data sets.  The program also includes aerial photography of the county.  In the program there are tools to create bookmarks, conduct searches, find address, do drawings with measurements, find GPS points and print maps.One of the largest benefits to county residents is the ability to view data that would normally be available only during business hours (Monday through Friday). (Source: http://ee-lincoln.ark.org/services)

EDGE

The EDGE team has been busy presenting EDGE in 2015 and are excited for the opportunity to work with several new counties and cities in the coming months.

ONE COUNTY MAP

EDGE is designed to be used as “The Map” for the County.  It is more than an Assessor’s Tool for Parcel Mapping or Judge’s system for County Road Management.  EDGE places all data being mapped in the County in one central location.  For the counties currently using EDGE it has become the source for the most up to date map of the County.

EDGE For Cities

EDGE is being used by multiple cities as well.  Cities in Arkansas and Mississippi are using EDGE to keep track of the utility systems such as water and sewer lines and associated features.  New in 2015 is also the customized Nuisance Property tracking module.  The Nuisance Property module can be customized to allow your city to not only keep track of where your nuisance properties are but also what phase they are in for remediation.

May 13th, 20145 Comments

Clerk_Craighead

Craighead County officials continue to add EFS EDGE to their daily workflows to help them better serve the residents of Craighead County.  EFS recently added their newly updated voting precincts to EDGE and received the following comment from Lesli Penny, Craighead County Deputy Clerk, “Thank you so much! We are using them today as voters have received new ID cards and all are not happy with new polling locations. Your maps make verification of addresses easier for us! Again, thank you!”    EDGE allows the County Clerk’s office to not only view their voting administration boundaries with absolute detail but also use physical address point data to assist with requests from the public on which voting precinct they reside in.  The moment a new address is entered into EDGE it is made viewable to the other County officials and employees who have access to the system.  Voter administration is handled through the Clerk Tool which allows for all Voting Districts to be listed for any given location by a single click of the mouse.
