  • Reinforcing credibility of the municipality with the residents, and elevating the quality of service available to the residents because problems are discovered before tax statements are sent out to the residents.
  • Lessens the need for appeals and reversals of tax assessments by conducting the survey professionally.
  • GIS enables properties to be viewed on the aerial photograph (Orthophoto) or from the side if photographed in the field. This makes it much easier to verify information without bothering the resident.
  • Lessens the need for appeals and reversals of tax assessments by conducting the survey professionally.

The use of 3D orthophotos and maps for property tax:




Apps for a supervisor’s or geographic surveyor on a PC tablet and Smart phone:

  • Geographic information is collected in the field by surveyors who measure properties dimensions, and data information which describes the property.
  • The properties are positioned geographically using either Photogrammetric maps or aerial photographs (Orthophotos).
  • The base information thus collected is exactly the same as the base information used by the city engineering department (for example: property areas, property use, address, property owner, identity number, etc.).


In this way, a single base of information can be used by many municipal departments without the need to duplicate any information.
