Pictometry Online – Parcels updated weekly!

pol_streamed_parcelsI have completed working with Pictometry to make an important change to the parcels shown Pictometry Online.  There is a new layer called Parcels (Streamed) which is coming directly from the County’s servers, and is updated weekly.

In the past, parcel data was uploaded to Pictometry and pre-rendered in a Web Mapping Service (WMS) – cached for speed.

The new parcel data is streamed from the County’s servers to POL through a Web Feature Service (WFS), and rendered locally.

You will most likely notice that the streamed layer is slower than the cached layer (especially upon initial load).  For now I will maintain both layers, but the cached layer hasn’t been updated in about 6 months, so I believe that currency is more important that speed at this point.

There are two parcel layers at this time – try each one and determine which one you think works better for you.
