Parcel Mapping

Rapid land development and increasing property values make it important for a community to maintain accurate parcel maps to identify and maintain the currency of the legal boundaries of public and private properties. Sanborn Parcel Maps are a detailed and accurate digital resource that commercial and public users can use to determine the location, size, shape, and parcel identification number for a specific property. This allows for easy identification of where a specific property is located relative to adjacent properties and public roadways. This is important information for planners, assessors, developers, and engineers with regard to compliance with local zoning regulations, modification and/or expansion of utility infrastructure, and for tax assessment purposes.

    Parcels are derived from existing maps (scans or hard copies) and legal information by geospatially registering imagery using a heads-up digitizing technique. Parcels also can be collected by employing COGO methods to enter the legal meets and bounds. These parcel mapping processes are used to create a new parcel base or update an existing base for AutoCAD or ESRI environments. Existing parcels may need to be topologically “cleaned” to eliminate slivers and gaps between parcels, and orthoimagery also may be used for greater accuracy in location of parcel lines. The final product may be delivered as a parcel fabric, simple shape file, or DWG depending on the needs of the user and their existing single-user or enterprise GIS systems.
    By leveraging an expert team of GIS, Survey, and Project Management professionals employing leading-edge hardware and software techniques, Sanborn has completed parcel mapping projects and created databases for specific customer needs for many communities across the United States. These projects have ranged in scope from creating maps through cleaning and updating existing datasets, to developing custom parcel base maps from new data.
