"Accessing information on property values, taxes, descriptions, boundaries and ownership has traditionally meant half-day trips to the tax office, waiting in line, asking questions and going through plats or lists that may or may not be up to date. Businesses and corporations whose interests are closely associated with properties, taxes and land values often have employees whose sole task is to research cadastre (ownership information) at the county courthouse. But the convergence of GIS and Internet technology with computer-aided mass appraisal data now makes it possible to access this information via the Internet."
