Happy GIS Day! Did you know our GIS department compiles, integrates all the data gathered within the agency as well as the external agencies and spatially enables it for various uses? Our staff uses GIS for a variety of things such as, mass appraisal, sales comparisons, exemptions, Value Adjustment Board, Field data collection and other general uses. Our GIS Department also builds and maintains various field, desktop and web map applications for facilitating and enabling core agency onsite and field operations. OCPA web map application is one of the best in the country and is used by many agencies and individuals for the useful and detailed location spatial information. All the data is available for public use and can be obtained through simple request procedures from the agency office. OCPA also makes available raw parcel and related data to various county and other agencies.
