Built on Esri’s world-leading ArcGIS platform, Assessment Analyst® is a powerful data creation, data maintenance and data analytics application that integrates building sketches, imagery, data and analytics. It fully integrates GIS with CAMA, providing you with a single platform to perform a wide variety of activities without the need to transfer data between systems, subsystems or viewers.

Assessment Analyst offers the most tightly integrated assessment data environment on the market so that you can not only visualize but also correct a vast array of data simultaneously and efficiently.

Inaccurate data leads to imprecise valuations. With Assessment Analyst, you’re able to vastly improve the quality of your data for consistently accurate assessments and mass appraisals. It also automates many aspects of your workflow, so that you can save time by making calculations, running valuation models, and reassessing properties on the fly.

Enhanced visualization and robust functionality allow you to not only detect data changes or errors more easily, but also, correct and resolve them all from a single system.  You can also elect to conduct all of your work in 3D. Manage your projects through an intuitive dashboard to complete your work more efficiently while monitoring productivity.

Limited staff presents a challenge to uniformly canvas residential properties in our county. Assessment Analyst provides an efficient means for us to systematically review all residential records using existing imagery and GIS maps. As well, it helps us comply with IAAO standards for property review without adding staff.
