Front Structure Photos
Front Structure Photos are also referred to as Terrestrial Structure Images. Terrestrial Structure Images (TSI) are a collection of digital color photographs of every structure in the County.
The Auditor’s TSI staff takes photos during the warmer months of the year and can be identified by their red Auditor shirts and identification badges. The TSI van has strobe lights and is clearly marked by the Lucas County logo.
There are close to 200,000 structures in Lucas County and photos of these structures have to be managed in a manner that insures for quality and accuracy. Updating and maintaining the photos is an ongoing process. This insures that each photo matches up to the correct address, the corresponding parcel, and aerial photo. Although the TSI project will always be a work in progress, the Auditor’s Office stays up to date with Lucas County’s changing structural landscape.
Reporting Changes in Structures
Citizens are encouraged to report any significant changes to the front of their structures (i.e., color, masonry, additions, removal of large trees, etc.) or image problems (i.e., obstructed photo or missing photo) to our GIS Department.
