County / Municipal

Individual counties and municipalities, along with consortia which serve regional interests, use orthoimagery and mapping for varied purposes. Digital orthoimagery enables assessors to visually inspect property to determine improvements to ensure optimal revenue collection – which can be done at a fraction of the cost of conducting in-person inspections of property. Imagery enables public safety and first responders to plot routes and see structures prior to arrival, helping them assess situations and make decisions. And highly accurate maps enable city engineers to plan and manage infrastructures, from calculating the required drainage necessary for parking lot runoff to the amount of earth necessary to construct a turnpike.

Today’s intelligent maps combine the ability to see, measure, and attach data to geographic features, for a host of important applications. Surdex develops orthoimagery and mapping for local governments to use for these applications, enabling them to manage their jurisdictions, from tax assessment to infrastructure planning and management.
