GALLIA COUNTY — A countywide property imaging project began earlier this month in Gallia County.
Gallia County Auditor Larry M. Betz has contracted Tyler Technologies, Inc., of Dayton, Ohio, to provide real property photos of each home in Gallia County. The services aid in establishing property values for all real property and land parcels within Gallia County.
A countywide property imaging project will be undertaken to provide detailed, high-resolution street-level images beginning April 9. Tyler Technologies field staff will photograph properties from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating they are conducting a mapping and photo street view project for the county.
The imagining crews are expected to be in the area for the next four to five weeks. During that time, they will be in constant communication with the auditor’s office. Information concerning their routes will be provided to the 911 dispatch centers.
The digital photographs will improve the quality of visual data used by county/Tyler Technologies appraisers during and after real estate updates, as well as assist in the verification and correction of addressing discrepancies. The photos will be helpful for emergency management recovery reports that are necessary for state and federal assistance. With recent and accurate images, the auditor’s office will be able to further assist homeowners and business owners by providing “before” pictures if ever they need to file a property loss claim, in addition to supporting up to date and accurate property valuations.
