Public Works Surveyor Documents Sharing Website

Alameda County, CA
Program Year: 2017

Abstract:
The Alameda County Public Works Agency (PWA) Surveyor maintains a number of recorded maps and documents that are often requested by the public. These documents, such as tract maps, parcel maps and survey records are stored in the County’s document management repository system. The system is used by internal staff to store imaged paper documents and for retrieval as requested for research. Collaboration between the Information Technology Department and the Public Works Agency produced a solution that is simple and convenient. The implementation of this self-service web application has enabled the sharing of these records with the public on the internet. Outside entities can now search and download the documents themselves, anytime, in the convenience of their own home, office, or virtually anywhere using their mobile devices.
