TAMPA — Hillsborough County Property Appraiser Bob Henriquez and his office have received an international award for the HCPA’s cutting-edge desktop appraisal system, Henriquez announced today.
Henriquez’s office has been recognized by the Center for Digital Government, which annually presents the Best of the Web and Digital Government Achievement Awards (DGAA). Now in its 20th year, the Best of the Web awards recognize city, county and state governments for outstanding portals and websites based on innovation, functionality, productivity and performance.
ACA was contracted by the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser’s Office to provide project management services for their new digital desktop review program as well as furnish aerial orthoimagery of Hillsborough County over a 4 year period. With the new Desktop Review Program HCPA appraisers are able to review the high-resolution Ortho Imagery, Oblique Imagery, CAMA data, and related GIS Geospatial data. All of this important information was combined into a single database to be reviewed on the latest Desktop Review Software as seen in the photo. ACA provided oversight of the installation as well as training for HCPA’s staff. The high-resolution imagery provided by ACA included digital 6-inch resolution, natural color (RGBI) orthophotography. Imagery was collected using ACA’s Microsoft UltraCam Eagle Digital Camera, the latest in advanced ortho imagery collection. The Eagle technology provides advanced processing of the imagery to reduce building lean, providing the appraiser’s the truest view down all four sides of buildings and structures, especially in downtown areas where buildings are the tallest.
ACA also provided all deliverables to the Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) as part of the project, to fulfill Hillsborough County’s aerial imagery update requirement.
The combination of technology, training, quality imagery, and project management by HCPA and ACA has highlighted the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser’s ability to leverage and sync as much data as possible to allow superior analysis for a more accurate appraisal.
