  • Maricopa County Assessor
    2016 NACo Achievement Award
    Residential Desktop Technology Recanvassing Program

    In 2013, Assessor Paul D. Petersen initiated a project to re-canvass all residential property in Maricopa County with up-to-date information on changes made to existing property. Without a statutory mandate to visually inspect residential properties, many parcels have not been updated since the 1950's. By developing a truly state-of-the-art canvassing methodology and using a new-to-market software package (Assessment Analyst – AA) developed by Esri Canada, our appraisers can be accurate within one-inch margin of error using sophisticated aerial and street-front imagery delivered to their desktop computers. Sending appraisers on site would take up to a minimum of 40 minutes -- excluding travel time from the Assessor's main office. Following IAAO standards, appraisers use AA to accurately review and measure a parcel at their desks in an average of just 11 minutes.
