New mobile access to GIS available for Thayer County

Thayer County is pleased to announce brand new mobile access to GIS and assessment data. Due to the ever-increasing use of mobile devices and smartphones, anyone may now access county assessment and property data via their mobile devices. This option is open to anyone using a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone with an available internet connection. The existing assessor website, hosted by GIS Workshop, will now be available in a mobile, or ‘lite’ version with the same ease of use and access to all the same property information.

As of Friday April 5, anyone visiting the existing website from a mobile device will be automatically directed to the mobile version of the site. They will still have the ability to search for property information by Parcel ID, Owner Name, Street Address, and Section/Township/Range. Searching the county for any of these will bring up a list of search results with links to the individual pdf reports in the same format as on the desktop website. In addition, the mobile site will have full map functionality that will allow anyone to see the map, zoom to a property, pan, and click on a parcel to access reports. Full data regarding values, taxes, and property photos will now be conveniently available from any smartphone or tablet in a condensed and easy to read format.

These updates are being provided at no cost to the county and its residents. This will allow all county residents, sales professionals, and county staff access to all property information at their fingertips. The mobile version of the site is in an attractive, easy-to-navigate format. This upgrade is a part of the changes GIS Workshop is continually making to provide clients with the latest and greatest in technology for ease of use and functionality.
