GPS mapping project will benefit the county, streamline services

By LeeAnna Tatum

In an effort to correlate land parcel (or tax ID) numbers with 911 addresses, Tax Assessor Neal Groover asked Evans County to invest in a GPS mapping project and accompanying software system to handle the data. The project was approved and carried out last year.
In the latter part of 2013, Groover started looking for a solution for a recurring problem of connecting information in WinGAP - the appraisal software used in the tax assessor’s office - with 911 addresses. The information available in the software did not always include all structures associated with a particular land parcel. 
Groover’s goal was to find a way to connect the parcel numbers, photos of structures and 911 addresses in one seamless package. To accomplish this, he contacted Lee Collins, a software engineer from Tattnall County who has experience working with other counties solving similar problems.
