LandWorks Inc., a developer of innovative land management solutions, has unveiled Web AutoMapper, an online service that automatically converts land legal descriptions into GIS-ready map polygons. LandWorks is offering free trial access to Web AutoMapper, including up to 500 parcels, until August 31.
LandWorks developed the Web AutoMapper service in partnership with WhiteStar Corp. of Lakewood, Colorado, and Digital Map Products of Irvine, California. Depending on the type of legal description entered into the online service, Web AutoMapper generates map polygons, using either WhiteStar’s national land grid or Digital Map Products’ nationwide tax parcel base.
At a cost of just $2 per legal parcel description, Web AutoMapper generates digital polygons for about 20 percent of the cost of manual mapping services. Legal descriptions that could take days or weeks to map manually can be processed in minutes with this online software-as-a-service application from LandWorks.
Available for immediate download or saved in the user’s account for later access, the polygons are ready to be imported as map overlays directly into Esri GIS software, as well as into many popular mapping systems, such as IHS Petra, IHS Kingdom and LMKR GeoGraphix.
LandWorks, an ESRI Gold Business Partner, provides software and services utilizing ESRI GIS technology. Since 1995, its primary focus has been providing software products and services for managing any type of land right in any industry including oil and gas, mining, pipelines, telecommunications, electric/gas utilities, wind energy, transportation and water.
