Talk To Me About: Star Trek, Craft Coffee, and cats!
My Favorite CAMA Feature: I love the “text file utility” that can be used for print selection. It can be challenging to help a client print a selection of Property Record Cards if they have a lot of specific criteria that they need. It is very easy to make this work by generating an easily auditable PID list in Report Wizard, and then using that list for the print job.
A Vision Tip: If you’re having trouble finding the information you need on a report, go to the screen in CAMA and put your mouse over it. Most of the time it will tell you the table and field name.
A Support Resource Not Everyone Knows About: It seems silly, but the help document inside of Vision is extremely well written! A lot of common operations are written out step-by-step with pictures of the screen.
Most Innovative Use of CAMA I’ve Seen: Augusta, Virginia uses Enterprise Geodatabases with Vision, which allows them to use the same map files across every program in the town that uses GIS.
