Coal Valuation GIS for Raleigh County Assessor’s Office
Using ArcGis software from ESRI and Map Server software from the University of Minnesota, Mountain CAD has setup the first accurate model of coal reserves for a WV County. The WV Geological and Economic Survey and the department of Tax and revenue provided data. This data consisted of 28 coal seams in Raleigh County and all surface parcels in the county.
Using this system the county assessor can now ensure fair coal taxation for all property owners in the county.
