Without parcel data…

“Most of the time you have to be In the industry, and try to process that data through a variety of means or multiple different processes to get what you really looking for.”

Steve Moseley, Civil Engineer, Artist

Faulty Integration

Integrating data without parcel mapping is complex, leading to difficulties in distributing information and maintaining reliable records.

Inefficiency

Without parcel maps, making informed decisions about urban planning and land development becomes difficult, leading to inefficient land usage.

Low Transparency

Without parcel records, the transparency of property transactions is impacted, since it details ownership records, land boundaries and value.

Using Equator’s centralized parcel data…

156+ million parcel boundaries and records available for the United States to help you with your latest project

Reliability

Parcel maps provide a trustworthy and reliable source of information for property ownership, boundaries, and spatial relationships.

Increased Productivity

 Incorporating parcel mapping data into business applications can increase productivity and reduce costs in urban planning and real estate. 

Fast

With easily accessible and centralized parcel data , decisions can be made quickly during sales, land assessments and even natural calamities.

How it Works

Step 1: View Coverage

Go to the Data tab and turn on the Parcels coverage map layer to see if data is available for your site.

Step 2: Create a New Site

Search for a location and create your site using either a pre-made boundary or a custom boundary.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is parcel mapping?

A parcel map depicts the boundaries of different properties, based on information from deeds and surveys. Parcel mapping includes information about the properties as well, including acres, ownership and land classification.

How do you find a parcel map?

Parcel maps can be found in a variety of different locations. Most commonly, they can be derived from government databases or public libraries. However, these maps can be hard to access, with increased processing times and issues with accuracy. Instead, check out Equator’s parcel data set for all your property needs!

How does Equator provide parcel data?

Equator provides centralized access to parcel data and makes it easy to use in CAD and GIS software. The platform allows users to easily clip parcel data to individual sites and export it as drawings (DWG) or GIS files (SHP).

Looking up parcel data on Google maps can be unreliable since it does not usually provide detailed property boundaries on the platform. While switching to ‘satellite’ view can help, Equator provides accurate parcel data in less time and with less resources used overall. 

Parcel maps provide the legal boundaries of each property. The metadata of each parcel will provide you with information such as parcel IDs, longitude/latitude of the site, elevation, legal address, zoning, and census data.

In Equator, it is quite simple. Simply click on the parcel and a box with the metadata will pop up. This will provide you with the parcel number, longitude and latitude, elevation and street address.

After setting up your Equator account, upload your parcel map file onto the platform and instantly work on your map. Entirely customizable, users can now curate their projects to fit specific parameters and improve their productivity.

To work on parcel maps on any CAD software, it will first need to be imported in an appropriate file format like DWG or SHP. It can then be edited and reviewed, prior to saving it and exporting it.
