The Economic Department of Highland, California is responsible for records concerning the historically designated properties and grant money assisted homes. They were in need of a system to easily manage this information as the records were previously stored in multiple physical files that had to be sorted through when a question was asked. They also needed the system to be able to share their data with other Highland city departments.

This paper presents a Web GIS application as the solution to their problem. An ArcSDE Geodatabase was built to store the data and then a map document was published to the web using ArcServer 10. The web application was built using the ArcGIS API for Flex. It was created in such a way the user can easily view, query, and add to the records in the geodatabase. This application is also available to other Highland government departments to support a more efficient workplace.
