The Bureau of State-Owned Lands Inventory has two primary responsibilities.
This bureau is responsible for the development and operation of the legislatively mandated Florida State-Owned Lands and Record Information System (FL-SOLARIS). This system serves as the state’s repository of state-owned lands and facilities inventory data and has become a valuable resource for the effective management of over 22,000 facilities and 71,000 state-owned land parcel records for state agencies, legislators, Cabinet offices and the public.
The bureau also performs GIS mapping production services to the Governor and Cabinet for the Board of Trustees Land Document System, which functions as Florida’s title provider to the Board of Trustees. DEP has mapped over 215,000 parcels described in nearly 95,000 documents archived in the Board of Trustees Land Document System. These parcels form the basis of FL-SOLARIS.
Technology Planning and Improvements
Keeping pace with technology is one of the greatest challenges facing governmental entities today. The Bureau of State-Owned Lands Inventory, within the Office of Operations, has been challenged with conducting a Land and Recreation Program-wide technology analysis and will continue to provide recommendations for presenting new technology upgrades for the Legislative Budget Request (LBR) and approval by department leadership.
Documented and measurable efficiencies achieved by better integrating technology into DSL, DRP and Office of Operations administrative and/or field operations.
