The appropriately-named “Do I Live in Tucker?” offers a user-friendly way to see exactly where a property is in relation to the city limits. Users log on from their desktop browser, tablet or mobile device, input their address and they are instantly notified whether their property is part of the new city of Tucker.
The app is the brainchild of Chris Rice, the city’s GIS (Geographic Information Systems) analyst. He says there was a definite need for this type of technology.
“It was based off of the amount of questions we get from citizens who are trying to look at our paper maps to determine ‘do I live in the city or not’?” Rice explains.
The program, which offers detailed aerial shots of the city, is much less complicated than it appears.
“[It’s] very simple and straightforward,” Rice says, adding that from conception to completion, the app took just two days to build.
More than 19,000 addresses are listed in the “Do I Live in Tucker?” database, as are close to 13,000 parcels. The app was developed using ArcGIS Online, a product of GIS industry leader Esri.
