The City of Calgary, Alberta has gone live with phase one of its assessment project with the successful rollout of a residential assessment solution using NovaLIS Technologies’ Assessment
Office. Assessment Office solution now provides complete integration between the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS), residential property appraisal, market regression analysis, and court scheduling information systems.
The goal of the project is to synthesize data from different City departments, some in disparate formats, to expand the market analysis, mass appraisal, tribunal, and assessment administration functions of the city. The Calgary Integrated Assessment Office (CIAO) project will provide this
environment to deliver a total business solution.
The Calgary Project will ultimately support all three approaches to value, sales, income, and cost, in a truly integrated way. CAMA data will be created, edited, analyzed, and presented for review using innovative PC and GIS technologies. New technological innovations will also include e-commerce web capabilities, field computers, document and records management, and
digital photo images.
