 Pike County

Electronic/GIS Data Rate Scale

 

Authority

The Pike County Board of Supervisors has established the following standard rate scale for the sale of electronic/GIS data. This scale considers the actual cost to reproduce the data and also a charge to reimburse it for the cost of creating, acquiring, and maintaining a geographic information system or multipurpose cadastre or any other electronically accessible data. Section 25-61-7 (2), Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended, provides the board of supervisors with the authority to set this scale.

Purpose and Intent

  1. Establish procedures for which any electronic or GIS data may be requested and distributed.
  2. Limit the liability of the County for release of this data to the public.
  3. Establish a standard rate of charge for sale of any electronic or GIS data. Rates charged will vary depending on the type of data requested, media of distribution, the purpose or purposes for which the information has been requested and the commercial value of the information.
  4. Establish what data is considered personal sensitive data and security sensitive data and who should have access to this information.

Request Procedure

All requests for data shall be submitted in writing. Initial requests may be made in the form of a letter or email. After the initial request is received, an additional form, see attached copy, will be required to assist us in determining the rate scale to apply. All GIS/multipurpose cadastre information requests will need to be submitted directly to the GIS department with all other data requests being submitted to the data processing department.

Sensitive Data

Personal Sensitive Data

Personally sensitive data includes but is not limited to, social security numbers and home phone numbers. Personally sensitive data will be excluded from any request. This information can be used to potentially harm or harass an individual.

Security Sensitive Data

Security sensitive data is, data that could be considered a threat to the public’s well-being if damaged or destroyed. These include but are not limited to, pipelines, electrical transmission lines, substations, gas processing plants, water storage facilities, water treatment plants and bulk oil storage facilities. It will be the decision of the Data Processing or GIS Manager at to what is sensitive and what is not.

Exceptions

The County reserves the right to waive any fees and charges in the event the County wishes to enter into an agreement with another entity or individual requesting electronic or GIS data. Such waiver will facilitate the sharing of data. This data may be in any form (i.e.: electronic or non-electronic), that has been deemed beneficial to both parties.

All waivers must be approved in writing, reason for the exception must be specified, by one of the following:

 

  1. The Board of Supervisors
  2. The Elected Official whose data has been requested
  3. The Data Processing Manager
  4. The GIS Manager
  5. County Administrator

 

Immunity from Liability

In making any electronic/GIS data accessible, the County makes no warrant of accuracy. All compiled electronic/GIS data was created and is maintained solely for the use by the County and its employees for the purpose of inventory and analysis. Neither the County nor its employees shall be held liable for the accuracy of the data provided.

Rate Information

Rates will be broken down by type of data requested (GIS, all other electronic data) as well as what the data is to be used for (whether or not the data is to be resold, redistributed, or used for market analysis).
