Real estate professionals including Realtors, Brokers, Developers, Appraisers, Surveyors, Engineers and Environmental Scientists rely on MapWise to get work done quicker and more efficiently.
I use MapWise a number of different ways in the process of acquiring land and have always found it to be an incredibly useful tool. Initially I use MapWise to "look" at a property on an aerial while overlaying various layers (wetlands, flood plain, elevations, etc.) to determine a rough idea of its buildable area. MapWise is then used to determine existing zoning, FLU and surrounding land uses to understand if a rezoning would be possible if needed. Lastly, MapWise gives us the ability to pull resale comps of the surrounding area from public records to give a full picture of the area's value. I wholeheartedly endorse MapWise and feel it is the best value around as an all-in-one tool for your GIS needs in acquiring land.
