Posted: Friday, May 20, 2011

The Huntington County GIS (Geographic Information System) has a variety of updates as of May 11. Huntington County has updated the existing Beacon map engine to enhance the user experience when working with the map, improving existing and expanding functionality.

The upgrade to the Beacon map engine is now able to support multiple map server technologies including ArcServer dynamic and tile caches, WMS, ESRI base maps, Google base maps and other pluggable architectures. It can support all modern map services and will be able to easily adapt to future services. The Beacon map engine works on multiple platforms including all modern mobile devices. Users will see improved navigation, new tools and an expanded map.

Beacon gives users access to a variety of integrated local government data including GIS, appraisal and tax information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the data is updated daily.
