How up to date is your GIS data?
That depends on which layer you are referring to. Layers that change often such as parcel lines, parcel text, addresses, road centerlines, etc. Are updated as quickly as the information is filed and processed. planimetric Layers (Building footprints, edge of pavement, sidewalks, etc.) were captured from a 2015 aerial flight.
How up to date is the CAMA (Property) data?
