Description
We map water rights to their two dimensional boundaries, (usually parcels) and their places of diversion or
withdrawal.
Remediation of yards contaminated with arsenic and lead. We use property owner information including
parcel data to identify homewoners and tenants. Parcel numbers and other attributes are used to plan
sampling and mapping activities, and public outreach activities.
Parcels are helpful for identifying the location and density of individual residential wells so that county and
city planners can get a handle on where ground water is being used for drinking water.
Map water right place of use and point of diversion based on legal descriptions.

We’ll use the parcel data in the Toxics Cleanup Program (Department of Ecology) site management
application. This tracks all cleanup sites in Washington State and for custom maps/GIS analysis on site
cleanups. We need this data to identify parcel numbers, owner name, and owners addresses in
Washington State on and around toxic cleanup sites. (Superfund, MTCA, LUST(Leaking underground
storage tanks)
Provide information related to water rights within the Columbia River and Snake River corridors. Places of
water use as described on water rights is integrated with county parcel data for current land ownership
information.
Place of use of surface or ground water associated with a particular water right is mapped using a legal
description. When the legal is lacking or not provided we use parcel coverage to determine place of use
based on parcel number, if provided.
We are seeking un-regulated hazardous waste sources or potential toxic releases. So we match buiness
locations and indentify all the information for that business including parcel numbers.
We would like to compare the spatial location of a proposed timber sale against the parcel dataset to verify
that they own the property they are applying to harvest.
Identify property owners and operators for parcels that may be sources of contaminants to the Duwamish
Waterway.
Map all water rights and claims in the Dept of Ecology's Eastern and Central Regions within one mile of the
Columbia River.
Identification of the owner of a parcel after a forester discovers that timber has been removed.
Under the WA Model Toxics Control Act gas station owners and operators are responsible for releases of
gasoline to the environment. I use the parcel data to determine the legal owner of the various gas station
properties so the WA Dept of Ecology can contact them to negotiate a proper cleanup.

We review parcels using aerial photos to determine if natural vegetation is present in sufficient amounts for
assessment for DNR fire protection. We review parcel data to determine if they are paying the assessment
appropriately.
We are in the process of digitizing Washington state water right places of use and points of diversion &
withdrawal. These digital data will be used for water right management and analysis, here at Department of
Ecology, and soon will be made available to the public via web-site.



We identify and map properties containing lead and arsenic contamination that exceeds MTCA standards.
Parcel data is used to identify land-owners, tax-parcel IDs, parcel size, and the spatial location of those
parcels.
We deal with known and suspected contaminated sites on a daily basis. This is not a single project. When
contamination is identified or suspected at a property, liability may belong to the current owner/operator or to
historical owner/operators. Also, full assessment of the property often depends on knowing past operations
and assessors's records may reveal past use. In addition, it is often necessary to notify adjacent land
owners if contamination may have moved beyond site boundaries because we wish to:
a) to request access, 2) to warn about potential health impacts, 3) to caution them about certain activities if
contamination present, 4) to invite them into decision-making, or 5) to enlist their participation in legal
process or cost-recovery.
Mapping the Place of Use and the Point of diversion/withdrawl of Water Rights from Water Right Certificates.
Use parcle information to locate legal descriptions.
Statewide identification of land parcels using parcel numbers, address, or section, township, and range, for
location of property impacted by highway construction projects.
Every project we review has to be evaluated for possible impacts to historic structures. We use parcel
information as one of several ways to develop a list/coverage of all potentially historic structures within our
project limits. We pass that information on to our on-call Cultural Resources consultants who then do the
necessary background information to determine whether a particular structure is historic and, if it is, whether
we will be impacting it as a result of our project.
Our office uses real property information of various types to identify and describe the individual parcels to be
appraised, to draw up documents to transfer the property, and to manage State-owned land.



With in the Clean Water Act, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) are watershed clean up plans. Field data
collection includes multiple water quality parameters. Access to waterbodies often require permmission from
landowners. Up to date parcel information is key when contacting landowners for access permission.

We identify WSDOT parcel property’s for building projects, property owners around WSDOT property’s and
use parcel lines to create building set backs. We identify properties owners around projects so they could
have comments on building proposal.
We are trying to find parcel owners willing to sell their land to DOT for wetland mitigation and for round-a-
bout right of way purposes in the area of our road improvement project.
State highway pavement overlay with basic safety restoration and spot safety improvements.
We identify locations and business names of businesses that may currently or historically discharge
contaminants into Puget Sound. These include industries, shipyards, logyards.
During disasters it is useful to know parcel owners to be able to verify the extent of the disaster. Exampe:
Mrs. X calls in and says her property is flooded. We can identify the property on the map along with the
indentified inundation area to determine extent of disaster.
I need to identify the legal owner of property adjacent to highways. I use this information to abate illegal off
premise advertising signs. This is a function od WSDOT's Outdoor Advertising Control (OAC) Program.




I use tax parcel numbers in official agency corrospondence when notifying owners or operators that "futher
action" is needed at a confirmed or suspected contaminated sites. I also use the parcel number: 1)to help
determine current and previous property owners and their address; 2)to determine site boundries and areas
impacted; 3)as a legal site/property description; 4)to identify owners of near-by property, and; 5)to assist in
determining zoning/land use designation.

Reference: WAC 173-340-320 Initial Investigation.
TCP Policy 310A Initial Investigations.

We regulate advertising signs on private property visible to highways. Permit review includes verification of
property owner consent and land use designation. Statute requires illegal sign abatement be addressed to
property owner.
Delineating irrigated lands within the scope of the Columbia river water management program boudary to
capture actual water use as opposed to "paper" water use.
This is a wood treatment cleanup site in Ridgefield. The Agreed Order (1995) was written to delete out
parcels or operable units from the site as they were cleaned up. It is divided into 4 operable units.
Used by the Toxics Cleanup Program's Initial Investigations Team members when initial investigations are
completed and the properties need to be listed on Ecology's Confirmed and Suspected Contaminated Sites
List. There is a field in this database identifying the parcel(s) number. This aids in figuring out which
contaminated parcels have been listed when looking at Assessor's Office maps and aids in figuring out
parcel ownership through the Assessor's Offices.

The Washington State Dept. of Ecology uses County parcels for a variety of business needs
including ownership, land use, hazardous waste, water rights, outdoor burn permit and urban
growth area identification.



I-90 SPE project will widen 15 miles of roadway from 4 lanes to 6 lanes (MP 55 to MP 70).


I identify land owners, for notification of property entry, using county assessors web sites
Determine landowners adjacent to highway widening project for impacts and analysis of right of way costs.

When WSDOT property is declared surplus, we contact the abutting owners to find out about their interest in
buying the property. All abutters must either waive any interest or the property can be sold at auction rather
than to an individual. We get current addresses, and owner names from parcel data. Also, we use the tax
assessment information and sales records to help with establishing value.
Locate the owners for a State Road project along I-90 between Sullivan Road to Barker Road. We determine
what area we will need for our road project then subtract that area from the total parcel.
Highway widening, traffic signals moved, utilities moved for traffic safety.

Identify the adjacent property owners to State owned Aquatic Lands, the parcel size and value of the land
without improvements. Identify when improvements have been put in on State owned aquatic lands by aerial
photos provided by the Counties.
Identify parcels and thier land use that may be impacted by future roadway construction in order to provide
reasonable right of way costs for long range transportation planning.
Inspect properties that are reported to have hazardous material spills or dumps, and conduct assessment
activities. Reports may be received by the public or by other agencies

we evaluate properties using the WARM scoring method to determine the relative risk the property poses to
public health and the environment



We identify parcels containing subsurface contamination, hazardous waste complaints, solid waste
problems, etc. .
study used parcel data in all shoreline six field hucs and assesor's information to identify model the level of
development
We use various means to randomly select points and unit areas on lands we believe to be forested and
privately or state-agency owned. Then we further screen the physical characteristics of those sites per the
particular study using aerial photography, parcel attributes, and field reconnaisance. We use parcel
information to identify the landowner(s) to request their permission to use their sites in our research and
environmnetal monitoring programs.



The Mapping Sciences group uses parcel data to identify areas with parcel description or for Federal land
administration. The data is used on public maps.
We use a variety of GIS layers to identify potential wetland mitigation sites. The parcel layer is used to
identify the size, zoning, parcel number, and owner of potential mitigation sites.
Identify parcels along the present I-90 corridor for future land acquisitions for highway widening

Research and identify records of title and ownership, easements, and other related documents to determine
road centerline and right of way boundaries.
We administer the subsurface mineral rights and interests held by the public. This subsurface of mineral
estate is often characterized by private ownership of the surface. The development of these resources must
be coordinated with those who have title to the property.




We survey each parcel in Thurston County and the South portion of Grays Harbor county every 5 years to
determine if the parcel should be subject for Forest Fire Protection Assessment (in accordance with RCW
76.04.610). We are beginning to use GIS to overlay parcel data on top of maps.

We help counties comply with the requirements of the GMA.




Management of shellfish harvesting, both cultivated and wildstock, requires harvest locations. Most of the
harvest occurs on public or private tidelands, the locations of which would be most completely described by a
statewide parcel layer including tidelands.
I maintain the BIDN(Beach ID Number) dataset and layer showing all public tidelands in Puget Sound.


This project is proposed by staff; it is not yet approved by management so it is no where near to being
active. Its purpose would be to quantify (at least relative to each other) the impacts of each parcel in the
Puget Sound watershed on salmon. The results would be used by WDFW for public outreach, to inform
landowners about how to voluntarily improve their property, but the results might also be used by PSP or
others to base new salmon restoration fund raising on John Lombard's "sin tax" idea, using the degree to
which each parcel is harming salmon to establish rates for taxes or fines.

We identify landowners at all of our natural area sites throughout the state to find names, mailing address,
ownerships, zoning, acreage, assesed value, etc.
The Solid & Hazardous Waste program at Kitsap Health conducts complaint investigations, Site Hazard
Assessments, Initial Investigations, Drug Lab Cleanups; issues Solid & Hazardous Waste Facility permits;
and conducts Hazardous Waste Technical Assistance visits at SQGs.

As an Area Habitat Biologist I often come across active Hydraulic Projects or recently completed Hydraulic
Projects and need to contact the property owner. It is often very difficult to locate the property owners
information. With access to the county parcel infomration I would be able to obtain owner name, mailing
adddress etc.
The Landscape PHS (Priority Habitats and Species) is a guidance approach for local governments, for
planning for the persistence of fish and wildlife in developing landscapes. GIS county-wide data is of high
importance for accomplishing this work.
Parcel data, reports from the Local Health Departments and sewer district boundaries are used to identify
the locations of On-Site Sewage Treatment Systems (aka "Septic Systems"). Every county has On-Site
Sewage Treatment Systems, about which they know very little, including location. By using GIS we can
target areas for further investigation and create a list of "Assumed On-Site Sewage Treatment Systems."
We can map these systems and evaluate them for their potential risk to public health.




I identify property owners, when given only an address, in order to know who to correspond with. We must
contact the taxpayer with information about suspected or confirmed contaminated sites.
Identifying public lands and the respective owning/managing entity in order to respond to customer (hunters
and fisherman) inquiries.




We contact private landowners who have property on fish bearing streams to ask for permission to access
the stream by walking through their property. Also, for habitat restoration projects, we may contact
landowners to provide them with information about proposed projects in their area.


We conduct aerial surveys of clam and oyster harvesters an public beaches in Puget Sound. The aim is to
estimate harvest effort on these beaches. It is very important to define the exact boundaries of these
beaches. By overlaying tidelands and adjacent uplands parcel maps over high resolution aerial photo
basemaps we can identify landmarks that our aerial surveyor can use to make sure only harvester actually
on the public tidelands are counted.
We identify property owners near identified project areas to coordinate efforts with them. We use the
contact information provided with the parcel info as well as the land use and zoning information often
available.
We propose to convert an existing stockpile site to a permanent clean earth disposal site. This requires a
county grading permit, CAO permit, SEPA, etc. The county grading ordinance requires the site plan to
include names and addresses of adjacent landowners. We use the parcel data to get both the site
addresses and the names and mailing addresses of the landowners. Also, the SEPA Checklist requires the
zoning and land uses. We can sometimes obtain this from the parcel records. We also have identified
ownership errors in the county records as shown in the parcel data. Acreage is useful too.

On occasion we encounter water system owners/operators that do not have the ability to successfully run a
system, address needed imporiveents...etc. When this happens, one of our strategies is to locate other
water system(s) that could possibly talk on the troubled system. At times, there is no specific ownership of
the system and we then revert compliance issues to the owners oft he properties served by the water
system.
Investigations to determine historical use and ownership of properties, who current owners are and whether
they have been paying property taxes on time. Similar information is often needed for surrounding
properties, as well.
We acquire land for preservation, conservation and recreational purposes. Acurate identification of
ownerships and property information is critical.


Construct a recreational dock within Moses Lake
We contracted with local farmers to provide hunter access to their lands, and in return compensated them
for the cost of planting a cover crop. The parcel data was used to map the hunt units and calculate the
amount of acreage within the units.
Water acquisition from a farmer using irrigation water. Information needed = location and use of field, size of
field, natural stream functions, length of stream within project footprint and downstream of project.

we could target landowners in a particular area with specific programs and funding to enhance fish and
wildlife habitat on private lands
We have monitored movements of cougar in Upper Kittitas county with GPS collars from 2001-present. We
are using county wide-parcel related attributes to document new human development to understand a
response of cougar movements and spatial organization.
DNR identifies whether or not projects are located on or near state-owned aquatic lands by using county
parcel data as one of many tools.

Inventory landslides along marine shores of Thurston County and create a map of relative landslide hazards
along the same shore.




Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already
characterized in survey response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer
to that survey response for additional detail.

Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000. Use of parcel data generally resembles that
employed for Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already
characterized in survey response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer
to that survey response for additional detail.

Lincoln County basalt flow stratigraphic characterization is a project that aims to generate new field-based
geologic characterizations of stratigraphic sections of Columbia River Basalt and adjacent geologic deposits
for the primary purpose of improved groundwater management capabilities within the Spokane Aquifer.


The Department of Ecology's Water Resource Program is currently mapping active state issued water rights
and water right claims. This data will help identify where land owners have legal authority to apply ground or
surface water.
I update the city limits according to legal descriptions and some of them refer to parcel information.


The SAEP provides estimates of population and housing for many geographic areas state wide. Right now
most of the areas are based on Census 2000 Tracts, Block Groups, School Districts (as defined by the
census) etc. Parcel data is used to geocode building permits, and group quarters (Dorms, Nursing Homes,
etc). We also use assessor/parcel data to locate new housing units when this information is available. The
distribution of new housing used in part to estimate the distribution of population and produce the SAEP
estimates.
I use parcel data to identify size of parcels, current land use/zoning, landowner. I also overlay this data with
environmental data like national wetland inventory, topography, streams and water bodies, roads, etc. I also
like to link parcel data with any documents, such as conservation covenants or deed restrictions that have
been recorded.
We review development proposals and planning and zoning amendments for impacts on fish and wildlife
resources. It can be important to know the parcel size and its zoning (per local ordinance)to understand the
impacts of development proposals or amendments. Knowing how a property is zoned is very important to
understand planned uses on the landscape and how fish and wildlife resource may be impacted.
We identify adjacent parcel owners by using owner name and mailing address, general location of land
boundaries, zoning codes, and various other parcel-related attributes to then intersect with state owned right
of way.
We have multiple reasons for needing landowner information. Our private lands biologists frequently work
with landowners for CRP assistance, hunting access, and habitat improvement. We also are regularly
involved in land acquistions. It is essential to know who owns the land. Having access to a statewide
database would save consider time. Being able to "zoom in" on a map to locate parcel numbers and
landowner info would be invaluable. Currently we go through County websites that can be slow and
incomplete.
Review current parcel data for accuracy in forest protection tax assessment, and submit updates as needed.

We would like to identify owners and contact information that pertain to existing wildlife habitat that we have
already identified, and to areas with high potential as wildlife habitat (corridors, areas that have similar
characteristics to existing habitat, etc.).
With renewed interest and increasing prices for metals, the inactive and abandoned mine lands project I
work on has taken on economic considerations in addition to the geologic considerations. It is important to
know how the former mined lands relate to the present parcel locations.
Department of Ecology is engaged in mapping all the historical water rights and claims across the state. The
process includes locating the Point of Withdrawal (for groundwater wells) or Point of Diversion (for tapping
surface water) and the associated legal Place of Use for such water. Much of this process includes
"detective work" to determine these locations since we are working off of historical data. Many of the legal
descriptions refer to lot and plat information. Parcel data is needed in matching the old plat maps to current
land ownership.
As part of my job in identifying water rights, resolving water right disputes and illegal water use, I need to find
out who the current landowners are along with their mailing addresses. I also need this information to
request access to private property for these investigations.
Our responsibility is to define individual Indian Trust Data as it relates to parcel location and ownership,
either in fee or in trust.
We update the Tax Code Area (TCA) map annually. We receive all tax district annexations and other types
of changes from the County Assessors' offices. These changes are incorporated using ArcGIS into the TCA
map layer. This information is used by utility companies to report their equipment and facilities to the Dept.
of Revenue on an annual report. The parcel map layer is always extremely useful as all tax district (city, fire,
school, hospital, etc.) lines are drawn along parcel boundaries.
To aide in the verification and discovery of Forest Excise Tax
It is anticipated that we will be needing to identify date houses were built for a childhood lead investigation.




The GMA requires 29 counties (of the 30 counties) and their cities to designate areas to accomodate urban
growth for the next 20 years. These must be reviewed every 10 years, but updates can take place annually.
Most counties maintain this information in their GIS.
OFM has the responsibility of certifying all city annexations for population estimate purposes. OFM’s
population estimates are used for state planning and per capita fund distribution purposes. Parcel data
supports this effort in a variety of ways, but is primarily used for mapping of annexed areas for field checking
and census validation processes.

We identify the State, County & City ownership, We incorporate that into our geometry
We acquire the parcel needed for the right of way from the property owner, relocate the displacees, and
manage the properties owned by WSDOT.
Roadway Improvement Projects
Used to identify parcel owners, ownership boundaries, and property zoning for parcels effected by highway
improvement projects.
The Washington Department of Transportation, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Conservation
Northwest, and The Nature Conservancy will be partnering in a statewide effort to identify wildlife movement
corridors between large blocks of key wildlife habitat. There will be an emphasis on selecting corridors that
include lands that already have long term habitat protection by virtue of land ownership, protective
easements, or binding management plans.
We identify potential properties that have potential attributes for use as a wetland mitigation site for raodway
project wetland impacts.


State Patrol, Public Utilities, and DOT personnel identify situations by State Route & Milepost (together with
the proper side of the highway). In order for us to resolve encroachments, dumping, illegal road approaches,
trespassing, and other misuse of the highway, we need to identify the owner of the offending site.

We create Right of Way basemaps along state and national routes from legal property descriptions. These
are based on township,range,and sections which, in turn, are based on WSDOT and/or county monuments,
plats, etc. and are used to recreate property boundary lines. County assessors' figures are used for total
parcel areas.
We use the parcel information to identify property owners and parcel ID numbers, whether adjacent parcel
are owned by the same person, all nearby parcels and owners that may need to use the same access
connection as the abutting parcel to the highway, acreage of the parcels, zoning (land use) of the parcel,
location of the parcel with respects to the milepost of state highways.
We need to identify ownerships and parcels for property along a corridor for any project within our region.

Contiguous ownership is important when ordering title commitments to insure property to be acquired by the
state. Parcel data furnished by the local agencies is crucial to the process.

We identify forest landowners by using owner name, contact info, contiguous ownerships, and land use to
identify parcels that we could potentially use in forestery research, particularly in riparian areas.

We identify landowners along many stream miles for access to conduct baseline fish and habitat surveys.

Identify parcels and ownership together with genral attribute information relative to improvements and usage;
such as land use code or description, owners name, basic improvement description and assessed value.

We identify parcels in all counties within SW Region that may be usable as wetland mitigation areas - a
current parcel overlay is critical in identifying suitable areas by size, geographic location, etc.



Using GIS to show tribal areas of usual and accostomed land interests. We have been using these areas to
map projects and protential projects in native lands of interest. This allow the tribes to comment on areas
that may be of particular interest or of sensitive nature. Also, allows DOT information about sensitive areas
prior to construction, thereby reducing the risk of stopped contracts etc.

We identify family forest landowners by using owner name, legal ownership location, and/or mailing address
to find contiguous ownerships, land use code to identify parcels being taxed as commercial/designated
forestland or timberland, and various other parcel-related attributes to then intersect with forest cover
information to identify a number of different types of forest landowners in Washington State, the number of
acres they own, and the spatial locations of those parcels.
We buy the needed right of way for state highway construction. This is usually in long narrow strips covering
3-5 miles on one or both sides of an existing highway.

We have to determine the ownership (who to deal with) and the market value.
I used recent aerial photos to identify landowners who owned timbered parcels. I used the attribute function
to assign a value(yes,no, need to check, etc.) and once complete compiled the data to make a list of name,
address and unimproved acres. This data is then used by the couny assessor to apply taxes to parcels that
have unimproved timber.
Identify and notify nearby property of hazardous waste activities at a location

We register flood maps (tif images) geographically and often overlay the parcel data to determine properties
in the floodplain. This process becomes especially useful in disaster response and in mitigation buyout
programs where this combination is necessary. At times we use the parcel data to get a list of occupant
property in the floodplain to target outreach material. This work is generally done on a community basis.
dFIRM data comes in county wide coverages and some communities (like Bothell, Auburn, Woodinville-
there are a lot!) lie in more than one county. Parcel data is usually maintained at the county level. There are
always cases where the data from one county is accessible while the neighboring one is not. A lot depends
on the level of sophistication in the county assessors office. That, and attributes are often different, which
involves effort to create a unified multi-county parcel coverage.



Example: We identify schools and childcares using owner name and mailing address. Sometimes
addresses change but parcel numbers do not, which mean that we can go back to the locations where
samples were taken. We also use parcel numbers to fill out State Environmental Policy Act checklists
before contstruction activities take place.
We are a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional team working on improved predictability, coordination and speed
for environmental review and permitting; enhanced efficiency and success for mitigation; and better
environmental outcomes that address site-specific, as well as larger geographic contexts (e.g. watersheds).

We geocode millions of records each year using an automated process in ArcGIS. Parcel centroids are
used as one of the most accurate reference data sources.
The DOH completed a random survey of Washington residents to record healthy habits and risk factors for
disease.
Development of address correction and geocoding web services.
Rather than one specific project, these comments refer to a family of projects. The data needed for
developments is very similar from one proposal to the next. We receive several hundred development
proposals each year. We need to identify the parcel(s) being developed. We need to know where they are
located regardless of whether or not it is adjacent to a state highway. It is important that parcels for the entire
county are included. There are times when a non-adjacent parcel is proposing direct access to a highway,
and we need to respond accordingly. Also, large non-adjacent proposals can still impact the state system.
Where they are located can affect the route they use for access. Finally, even if a parcel(s) are located far
removed from the state system, it is important to show that they are in fact far away.

We identify landowners within certain radii of recovery projects or endangered species habitats to notify them
of potential concerns or potential involvement (safe harbor) re: recovery efforts and habitat protection. We
assess relative "costs" per project based on number of unique landowners and size of private holdings.

We will use parcel data within an ArcMap application developed to edit, query and update spatial data and
observation/ownership attributes for statewide locations of Washington Species of Concern.

Parcel data is used to navigate within the application and as supplemental information that aids in species
management plans. Plans are developed with private landowners proposing development or other actions
that may impact an individual or group of animals that reside within or adjacent to parcel boundaries.

We identify tideland ownership in conjunction with managing public tidelands for reacreational clam & oyster
harvest.
We locate landowners boundaries to verify the landowner of a particular road crossing and identify other
landowners up and downstream to get permission to walk stream on their property.

Each individual parcel is a separate, but similar project. I'm just going to describe what I typically
experience.
My usage of parcel data is varied. I am usually applying the need of identifying the parcels to apply habitat
conservation needs for an area, often times related to a Threatened or Endangered wildlife species. Another
application I used recently was to identify the ownerships within a defined elk area specific for a special
permit hunting season. I wanted to generate a map product for the permit hunters that allowed them to
visualize the owners within the area, to assist them in knowing who they would need to contact to gain
permission for hunting when on private ownership.




We link our bald eagle nest and roost locations with county parcel maps so that we can determine where a
particular property lies relative toa bald eagle. management zone. We use these constantly, for all counties
in Region 4. Constantly in this instance means every day.
We have critical habitat layers in the Priority Habitats and Species database and would like to determine who
owns these lands so we can contact them for potential management or acquisition agreements.

Basically, WDFW manages land that is owned by Tacoma Power to meet FERC requirements for mitigation.
We are charged with identifying lands that meet mitigation objectives as identified by the Wildlife
Management Coordinating Committee. We provide maps and parcel data (ownership, contact info, boundary
lines, acreage, use classifications and etc) to our lands agent to help facilitate the potential acquisitions.

We get data from various sources that are deemed as potential risk activities for registered sex offender.
These risks include schools, daycares, libraries, churches, and youth camps. These data are geocoded to
specific parcels. The parcels are then identified and labeled when a registered sex offender is released back
into society.
General Topics
Acreage, address, land use, legal description, and ownership information are all utilized
and necessary to our efforts.
We use property owner names, street address, parcel number, areas, and other
geographic fields depending on the task at hand.

We only use parcel boundaries.

The parcel layer I use currently has an attribute which gives the legal description. This
is extremely helpful. Other helpful attributes include name and address.
We are interested in this data to identify parcel numbers, owner name, and owners
addresses.



Owner name and address.
Site leagal description

Data used to determine possible Place of Use are the parcel number; owners name;
previous owner or grantor; site address; legal description; plat description/title; lot and
block information.

property's history (buy/sell records) to identify previous owners and obtain information
on possible historical operations.
Address of parcel, Name of owner, Area of parcel

We use owner name, legal description, areas, and other information for identification of
parcels.
We are primarily interested in the year a particular structure was built. The next bit
would be ownership as that is also a necessary part of the information we include in our
reports.


We use data such as owner name, mailing address, site address, parcel size, zoning,
use, county assessor's maps, parcel shape, topography, vegetation, etc. Aerial photos
are very nice, and it would be good to have demographic data gathered into one site.
(Counties vary greatly in the availability and completeness of their data.)

We look at land use, ownership, and contact information.



we use the data to inentify WSDOT propertys to submit building permits, and to use to
locate how close building are to property lines.

impacts our facility will have on individuals, farms, schools, etc., to get some square
footage quantities for financial impacts to our projects, etc. etc. etc.




Owner name and mailing address. Zoning designation


I use owner/company name to give clues as to possible crop types/uses. I also use the
shape to help bisect adjoining fields

boundaries, shape,...
Interested in Street addresses, size of parcels, ownership information. interested in
adjacent features on the Assessor's Office maps, such as nearby streams and
wetlands, to identify potential nearby receptors of contamination, or adjacent properties
that may be impacted. Sometimes, the size of a parcel helps to identify the site of
interest when other information is lacking or just historical information is available.

We currently use parcel identification number, owner name and address and State
Dept. of
Revenue land use code in our compiled parcel layer.



Identify landowners, mailing address, parcel size, assessed value and zoning. Use
parcel layer in map making to estimate impacts the project has on landowners.

I am looking for name and phone number for personal conversation contact.

restrictions, wetlands area,
Primarily interested in landowner name, parcel numbers, parcel size, land use
information, market value without improvements.

I haven't used it in the past. I would like to know the current land use as well as the
zoning for furture use.
Parcel data is necessary to locate the property and then to contact the current owner.
Parcel data can also be used to locate past owners.

Interested in owner name for mailing and contact purposes regarding the initial
notification, investigation, and ranking decision of the site. We have parcel data from
the county currently, however, streamining data from one reliable source is alwasys
helpful.

assessor through the Dept. of Natural Resources Resource Protection Division.

County boundaries, locations and length of rivers (esp. with anadromous fish), urban
growth areas, designated agricultural and commercial forest areas, locations of PHS,
land cover types, roads,locations of wetlands and steep slopes and floodplains.

Ownership, current address of owner, phone number, zoning,inside the GMA?,
impacted by the CCA?

Owner name, county, location, parcel size.


We are primarily interested in accurately defining the boundaries of public tideland
ownership.

We would want parcel data to graphically show: the parcel size shape and location; its
relationship to streams, wetlands, and shorelines; the mapped contours and lidar
images of the area; vegetation coverage in the area; stormwater infrastructure; unstable
slopes; and GIS natural resourse data. We would also want ownership data, and owner
contact information, if available.


We would like to use owner name, address, land use information, and assessed value.

We are primarily interested in parcel data being included in ISIS. We currently have
parcel data from Kitsap County Government.


Primarily interested in obtaining owner information for the purpose of contacting them to
follow-up on hydraulic issues on their property.


We use a spectrum of county-wide landscape data including: landcover and hydrology,
and landcover metrics such as % natural vegetation, TIA, EIA, and roads with traffic
data.
To create contact lists for systems that may have an impact on public health we would
need Owner Name and Mailing Address. For site evaluations we would need Situs
Address. A Zoning Code to identify residential or industrial parcels would help us
identify type of waste produced. A Sewer Code would help identify those parcels on
sewer and those that might have an On-Site Sewage Treatment System. Some parcel
data include number of bathrooms or number of toilets. This would help estimate the
volume of waste generated per day. If the parcel data includes soil type, this would be
a big help but this is wishful thinking. A Land Use Code would also be helpful.

Primarily interested in owner name and address to know who to send notification of
contamination to.
Primarily interested in location, boudaries, access routes and ownership.

We are interested in owner names and contact information when responding to elk
depredation complaints. Landowner info helps us identify who we have to contact when
moving elk herds out of privately owned agricultural lands and back onto public lands.

response for additional detail.
Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000. Use of parcel data
generally resembles that employed for Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard
zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that survey
response for additional detail.
Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow stratigraphic characterization
project generally resembles use of parcel data for Thurston County marine shores
landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that survey
response for additional detail.
We are primarily interested in the land owners name.


It would be helpful to know who owns the parcels because some legal descriptions
make mention of the owner and the size of the parcels would also be of use to me.

We use parcel ID number, site address, building permit information if available, housing
structure type and year built where available.

using the data to understand the distribution of land owned by especially the
landowners that have the greatest ownership.
The best example of what we use is the Stevens County Assessor's map database
which superimposes parcel boundaries on aerial photographs and section lines. This
gives us a perfect location.

We typically use the parcel geometry and site address for mapping and boundary
verification. We sometimes use site address and owner’s name for group quarter
location verification (Group Quarters are; Nursing Homes, Boarding Homes, College
Dormitories, Jails etc.). Occasionally we use the parcel data as part of a field atlas to
help validate an census or vacancy survey.
Attributes: Management by State Agency, & edit dates

Nature Conservancy lands.


Identify properties with for use as wetland mitigation sites.



Generally interested in Owners' name and contact information - as well as tax parcel
information and legal boundaries of the parcel.


Where available, WSDOT right of way plans are used first to determine existing right of
way. Then documentation from the sources mentioned above are used to flesh out
parcels. We are interested in owners names, exact parcel descriptions, and existing
easements.

and the site address.
We used site address and landuse attributes.

Site address and parcel number are needed.
We are usually most interested in knowing the parcel number, the location, the size,
and the name of the owner. Occasionally, we note the value of the improvements on
the parcel to identify if it is vacant.

Could also look at USGS topo maps, Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, Thomas Bros.
street maps, arial photos, site plans (as builts, current or former site reports.




I use a public land ownership layer to help code and identify public land from private
(for example,
it is important to be able to separate national forest land from private/commercial forest
which
is not always evident from land use code or owner name).

Aerial photo's, wetlands inventory, waterbodies, roads, public lands, land cover, ESA

ISIS include USTs, LUSTs, Hazardous Sites, the CSCS list, the NFA list, Landfills,
Biosolids facilities, federal facilities, CERCLA facilities, the SHA list, etc.
A report of parcel numbers from the Local Health Jurisdictions are used to identify
parcels of interest. This can be problematic if the list is out of date with the geometry.




I use parcel number, acreage, land use type, property name (if available), section,
township, range info and sometimes previous owner info.




use hydrology layers (DNR, WDFW, SASI, Streamnet and others) to plan where we do
our assessment work; use WDFW's FPDSI database to identify existing data; use
aerial photos


The highest possible aerial orthophoto basemaps are a very important additional
requirement. 18" resolution color SIDs are useful. Even higher resolution would be
better.




In conjunction with the parcel data, we use several other data layers: aerial photo,
wetlands, ESA species, cultural resources,streamnet, FEMA floodplain. We evaluate
sites for environmental concerns and limitations.




Water system information, emergency management information, FEMA
information...etc



Information on historical use of properties and, if available, current and historical
photographs. Aerial photography of the area is very useful.




When drawing the hunt units, we put buffers around roads (Tiger streets) and
buildings. Buildings (houses, barns) were mapped using color orthophotos.
Stream typing, fish presence, irrigation ditch identification, and critical habitat zones.


habitat cover type and land use

We use a forest cover map created by students at Central Washington University, road
layers, DEMs, and hydro layers.

DNR Cadastral layers, DNR aquatic land ownership layers, DNR encumbrance layers,
Flash Earth or Google Earth to enhance imagery, Ecology shoreline photos

Aerial photos and lidar for location, land use, and landform characterization (Lidar
includes derivative products like contours, hillshades, slope maps, etc.). Geology maps
for geologic information. Also used landownership, zoning, soils maps, bathymetric
DEM data, T-sheets, roads layer, hydro layer, scanned images of prior field maps, site-
specific technical investigations (e.g., geotech reports) and published reports, field
observations, infrared photos, D.O.E. shoreline photos, and other resources.

Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation mapping,
which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that survey
response for additional detail.
Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000. Use of parcel data
generally resembles that employed for Thurston County marine shores landslide
hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that survey
response for additional detail.
Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow stratigraphic characterization
project generally resembles use of parcel data for Thurston County marine shores
landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that survey
response for additional detail.
We use aerial photography, stream course layers, township range and section, USGS
topographic maps, transportation layers and georeferenced plat maps.

I use city limits layer, Tquad maps, USGS topos, and a road database to make sure
that the annexations are put in the proper location.

We use a variety of Federal census data sets most the census block file.
OFM county/city population estimates.
DOT city limits of various years.
TeleAtlas ZipCoce and Carrier Route boundaries.
USPS postal delivery statistics data.

National Wetland Inventory, hydrolayers (streams and other water bodies), Roads,
topography.


We use land cover information to determine habitat values and connectivity.
We use 100 year flood events, rivers, stream & creeks, fish barriers, and othe water
related information due to other speciality work in hydraulics and hydrology.

We would like to use parcel information in conjunction with NAIP data layers.




For the actual review, parcel boundaries on current orthophotos provide a great tool.

We will use aerial photo/orthoquad data, distance to water, locations of roads.




Roads network, Qtr/QtrQtr and Township, range and section data, Water Resource
Inventory Area Boundaries, Hyrography data, City boundaries.




At the county office I also research additional former owners, county assessment
sheets, and at the title office I research the complete title chain in some cases.

Farm use, forested lands, undeveloped areas, improvements, and riparian boundaries.

We use any mapped information submitted by the County Assessors' offices. It is
often on paper, but counties are starting to submit a shapefile of the annexation, or a
county wide map of Tax Code Areas. We also use vendor data -- streets, rivers,
railroads. We also use DNR PLSS data.

DNR Forest Practices layer, private timber company harvest layers,
county
cities
schools
daycares
land use




Developed or undeveloped, assessed value of land and improvements.


We use city annexation ordinance information. We also use city annexation-census
information which is confidential.



This is used with our other resource layers, eg. roads Hydro forest inventory etc...
We use the County website and MetroScan to locate the legal owner of a parcel.
ortho corrected images to overlay parcel boundaries onto.

Land cover, road networks, highway traces, Lakes and streams, etc.




NWI, stream data, topography, air photography, watershed (WRIA), drainage basin,
city/county boundaries, parcel boundary, parcel ownership, soils, and roads. This data
is available on our in-house GIS system.

County zoning; locations of rivers; streets; streams; sections, townships, ranges; Plat
boundaries; State Routes and Mileposts; recent land/parcel sales; Utility lines,
topographical images.

Of particular interest are existing wetlands, streams and rivers, and other data that can
impact mitigation which might be necessary.


We use state routes and mileposts, sensitive areas (wetlands etc.), city boundaries,
aerial photographs, township and section numbers and lines, traffic data, and Road log
information. We also this information in conjuction with SR View to get a better feel for
the topography of the location in question.
We also need the names of the owners




lidar and aerial photos.




County or City zoning, County roads with address if available, Real property sales layer
created from sales database and county parcel layers, Urban growth boundaries, PLLS
layer, topography.
We use numerous other data sets in association with parcel data including soil type,
hydric soils, hydrologic soil groups, streams, contours, land cover, city limits, local
roads, WRIA and watershed boundaries, local critical areas, sensitive speciea/priority
habitats, contour and aerial photo overlays, etc., to determine site feasibility.

Sometimes we use wetland layers as well as cultural resource layers. Rivers, and
lakes are also very important in terms of fishing rights and endangered species.



We utilize resource data layers for streams, slopes (access), and habitat.




The appraiser will talk to the county planning people for zoning maps, restrictions on
use, and requirements for building or improving the parcel.

Private companies provided sales data that is very time saving for us.
I used the most recent aerial photos to identify forested parcels



We use our own database of regulated facilities

dFIRM, q3, elevation, hazard identification, and risk category




we use aerial photos to show buildings on the site and create coverages showing
sample locations and buildings.
We use flood zone information, street overlays, bus stop locations, bodies of water,
and zoning.


We use the WDFW priority and habitats species database, salmonscape, DOE coastal
zone atlas and shoreline databases.




We used aerial photography and TeleAtlas streets to create maps of randomly
selected Census Block Groups.

Primarily aerial photographs, highway system, local street system, mileposts, city limits,
townships, & sections. We also use rail system, wetlands, traffic volumes, accidents,
topographic lines, roadway functional class.




We use WDFW landcover data (shrub/steppe) or other landcover data including NLCD
to assess habitats included in or adjacent to private landownership. We access NRCS
Conservation Reserve Program data in these eastside habitat projects.

transportation; wildlife occurence point, line and polygon feature classes; major public
lands ownership




We use field-generated GPS points to identify property boundaries, clam & oyster
habitat boundaries and sample locations.
Streams and lakes, DNR stream type, roads, fish passage database, DNR region,
county, twp/range/section, landcover - USGS topo, DNR ortho, NIAP CCM 2006,
WRIA, fish distribution.
We use Underground Storage Tank (UST) data module in the Integrated Site
Information System (ISIS) database.
aerial photo coverage, both current and historic to compare
water bodies and habitats
wetlands
historic structures
wildlife and fish habitats
unstable slopes
floodplains
shorelines (specifically what portion is within the shoreline jurisdiction)
tideland ownerships




PHS data
Ecoregional Assessment data

We use color orthos, NWIS wetlands data, Wildlife Area boundary polys, transportation
line data and corporate hydrology line data in conjunction with parcel data to identify
key acquisition parcels.


Road layers are used to assist in parcel geocoding address information.

which cover this issue also. It is
necessary to correctly identify
sites being listed as

sites were previous larger and
have been subdivided over the
years into numerous tax parcels
with different ownerships. In this
case, all parcels would need to
be identified and listed as part of
a larger, historic, contaminated

Parcel number is the single most
important piece of data to locate
a property. Physical address is
secondary, useful for locating
when a parcel number is mis-
identified, missing, or simply to
confirm a correct parcel number.
Township, range, and section are
not critical, because most parcel
numbers in Okanogan County
begin with the TRS number.

T-R-S is critical for us in locating

databases by T-R-S when we
have entire sections included in a

pieces of information we need.
Sometimes we can obtain it in
other ways by overlaying the

We use the county ID number to
locate the property and research
the county records as to adjoining
parcels owned by the entity. The
address will work if it is in a
community. T,R,S will give us a
place to look if that is all we can
get to start our search.

The address is used to create a
point layer of parcel centroids
that are used for geocoding. We
process the addresses using the
Centrus software to standardize
them and create the individual
fields needed by the ArcGIS
address locator.

The TRS attribute could be useful
for creating approximate
locations for addresses in
Counties without digital parcel
data.                                  999            999   999
The site addresses were used to
create maps showing only

Site address is used for
geocoding and to return the
parcel number. This parcel
number is then passed to the E-

developed by DIS.                      999            999   999
The parcel number is essential.
We have to know if we have
identified the correct parcel.
Access is tied to the property.
What may hold for one property
does not hold for another.
Similarly, the range, township,
and section identify the parcel
location. The site address can be
very useful in helping tie the
parcel to a highway milepost.

the current title owner may have a
different name than the one to which
the water right was originally issued.

Assessed values are not required,
since we are in the process of
determining what we think the
property is worth, and it is an
independent process. But it's nice to
have the information. Parcel area,
and taxable area if different, are very
important for determining the value of
the property. Also, if the subject
property sold recently, that has a
bearing on value. Another use is for
properties that we find to compare
with our subjects, and here the details
of the sale are essential, so we can
determine whether adjustments are
necessary based on the time of sale. Required           Required

The area is very very useful. Based
upon the zoning, we can determine
how many future lots can be
developed, and from that, estimate
the volume of traffic at a particular
location. We have probably used the
land and market values at some point
in the past, and were useful to
respond to a development. The
improvement value can indicate
whether or not the parcel is vacant. It
can be useful to know the sales
history of a parcel, and who it was
purchased from.                         Desired            Desired

Land value can be useful if owner
applies for a grant.
mprovement value can be used to
determine whether buildings have
been demolished.
Market value can be useful if owner
applies for a grant.
Taxable area (area measurement)
can be useful in matching up site with
our reports, especially if buildings are
demolished and site has no current
address.
Sale date can be useful in
determining who owned the site when
the release of petroleum occurred or

I'm frequently looking to identify
properties to consider for
conservation actions. These involve
pursuing funding for acquisition of fee
simple or conservation easements.
Knowing the values of the property
and the infrastructure that exists on
the land is key to developing a
competitive grant proposal. It also
helps in recognizing the landowners
current use of the property and allows
us to be sensitve to that while
pursuing conservation measures.

Sale date tells us how recently the
landowner invested in the property.
This is usually a key bit of information
because unfortunately if the parcel
recently sold, it presumably sold at the
market value, and there is often much
less motivation for a landowner to
consider selling since they won't be
getting any return for their investment
over and above what they just paid.

It would be beneficial to get whether the
parcel is on sewer or septic, as well as if the
parcel is on a public water supply (and which
one!) or a private well. Thank you.




Legal description other than just TRS. The
parcel layer I use gives lot numbers, section
quarters, etc.


Site legal descriptions

Other required attributes would be the legal
description; the Plat, lot and block identifiers.
Many of the legal description will simply state
something like "Lot 2, Block 7, Plat of Town of
Omak." Having the above described
attributes would allow for accurate
determination of the Place of Use as provided
in the legal descriptions.
Current use....ie we often find that the use of
the tenants on the parcel is not clear in the
land use codes. For example a autosales yard
is listed as mixed use. I personally would like
to see a link the the primary NAIC codes of a
parcel (ie Autobody shops = 811121). This
would mean that I could really look for similar
uses. Multiple businesses on a single parcel
would require an extra linked file...extreamely
useful information to have.

You have put togther a great coverage now
and these would be enhanacements. Thanks
for your work.


it would be useful to know if there are
encumbrances on the property, such as
conservation easements




Permit data.




fire district fee, forest protection fee
(FFPA),acres undeveloped and/or FFPA
acres
It would be nice to have historical parcel
information - ownership and subdivision
through time. I know this would be tricky to
provide as an attribute, but it would be a great
addition to county parcel web-sites.




The Whatcom Co. Assessor's on-line system
has had parcel maps available (at least lately)
for some searches. This has been helpful --
especially in looking at a heavily developed
section of roadway adjacent to stores, gas
stations, malls and offices.




Acres- To know how many acres the area is.




The year structures on the parcel were
constructed. Very important to my work.
Permits: If the owners have applied for
development permits (short plat, subdivision,
etc.), it is helpful to know the status of the
permit applications.




Phone number.



no




Phone number of owner
graphic layout of parcel boundarys - this is
invaluable for preliminary property impacts




We occationally need to ask counties for
urban growth areas and city boundaries. This
could be coded into the parcel data base by
the county for easy parcel identification.
A simple yes or no field for UGA and CITY
would be a help.
none




some counties have photos of buildings on
the property, and this is quite useful in field
identification of property




A link to documents that prove ownership is
useful




Records of surveys associated with the
parcel. These are helpful in determining
parcel lines, any discrepencies in the deed or
changes to topographic calls in the deed.




Aerial photographs are very helpful for current
and historical information.
Information about improvements is sometimes
helpful to determine if there are residents who
might be affected by contaminants, and can
provide an indication that there may be a
water well serving the parcel.




A photo of the parcel or structures on the
parcel is helpful.




Accident Reports




Soil types, subsurface geology, recent aerial
photos



Not all parcel data has the same attributes.
When designing a protocal the assesor data
needs to be included
Full parcel descriptions are sometimes helpful
in identifying the correct parcel and in site
suitability screening, especially when we don't
have immediate access to the GIS picture and
are relying on database information.

Links to Parcel photos are helpful for site
suitability screening.

Improvement values indicate whether there
are builidngs, especially residences, on the
parcel. This is often used in site suitability
screening in our studies.




ROWs and Easements
Stipulations (these include restrictions to
activities)
Number of forested/unimproved acres on
each parcel.




It would be helpful to be able to link ownership
data with a copy of the deed to the land.




Direct contact information in the form of
phone numbers would also be extremely
valuable. I believ this information is often
lacking in county parcel databases.
Sewer Code indicating type of waste
disposal.
Structure Build Date: this can be used to
target properties that have old On-Site
Sewage Treatment Systems.




None.
habitat types on property; streams, wetlands,
lakes and ponds on property; buffer zones;
existing conservation easements




It would be very useful to have survey
benchmarks and survey monuments included.
These would be used to verify boundary
locations on the beach using GPS.

National wetlands inventory overlay




Photos of the property from the street and
from the air. Maps with other parcel number
identification in surrounding area.

Mapping.
Location of wells or Points of diversion for
irrigation.
It would be helpful to me for a parcel layer to
include information on whether geologic or
geotechnical site evaluations have been
performed on the parcel (and if so, how to
obtain these), whether the parcel is supplied
by city water, whether a known well is present
on the parcel, and what phone number, email
or or mailing address the parcel owner can be
contacted at. Leads to land use history and
construction records are likelwise of interest to
me.

Sometimes we use housing structure
information:
Housing unit structure type
Number of living units
Year built

Sometimes we building permit data:
Permit Issue Date
Permit Completion Date
Structure Type
Number of Living Units
Year built

We use jurisdiction information if available:
Jurisdiction (Unincorporated County vs.
Incorporated City)
DOR Tax Code Area.
Clark County's interactive parcels map is
linked with the recorded documents from the
auditors office. This is very useful if I want to
know if a parcel containing a wetland
mitigation site has recorded protective
covenants to ensure that the site will not be
developed in the future.




So far, the current information for parcel is
quite adequate.
I am aware of none, but I have never been
provided with county parcel data - so I am
unsure.




Lot and Plat information IS REALLY helpful.
Save enormous amounts of time trying to
research this data.
date built
property type
land use (private or commercial,single unit,
multiple unit,park etc.)
lot size
address
TRS
sale date
sale price
assessed value
sewer type
water source
X and Y coordinates
construction method (stick built, modular
etc.)
zoning
slope
special features (waterfront, surface water)
flood zone


Urban Growth Area designation, RCW
36.70A.110 Growth Management Act. Annual
update would be adequate.




A date field to determine vintage of the parcel
data
Plat maps, title reports, and recorded
documents.


GMA designation




Photographs of buildings. Snohomish county
provides this information.
Links to on-line parcel tax and asswssor data
is sometimes provided.




improvement square footage and type would
be useful if available.
Size/acreage. MAPS!




Aerial photos, topographic features,
neighborhood information. The on-line
counties have a lot of information available
that we use. The more rural areas we have to
do more on the ground research.




pays forest patrol assessment= each timber
county has a $14.95 tax added to a parcel if
the parcel has unimproved timber. So when I
do the re-assessment we only forward the
newly added parcels to the couny assessor.




there always seems to be something
overlooked. Some connunities have more
sophisticated data than others.
Good parcel address, occupant
address(addresses in the case of
apartments), and owner address so that we
could possibliy use the parcel layer to create a
mailing list for the required public comment
period and save money.

Assumption




Parcel expected to have associated polygons and preferably
unambiguous owner or street addresses. Metadata needed for
quality control. Parcel polygons expected to be within
established standards for spatial accuracy.
Definitely need a data dictionary, township, range and section
nice if we wanted to look up a well log and try to match it to a
parcel. The well logs don't always have address, but they are
required to have township, range, section, quarter-quarter.


Accuracy, they have to match up correctly w/ township and
section data. How current they are is also important.

We require this data to identify parcel geometry, parcel
numbers, owner names and owner addresses.




Digital parcel polygons (spatial geometry) is preferred. A
standardized data dictionary would be very useful.
The example given with this question is my response.



Spatial references essential. Date of update must be included
sice counties will refresh information regularly.
All data shall come with metadata.

Need data dictionary

The example above says it all.
Spatial geometry is required so that the parcel can be identified
in the field using gps.
None
           each parcel has associated spatial geometry, parcel can be
           related to Township Range and Section, data has data
           dictionary, spatial data uses same coordinate system DNR uses,




           We expect county parcel datalayers to have associated spatial
           geometry, and accompanying metadata. We like parcel IDs,
           TRS and complete legal descriptions.


           physical address, owner name, mailing address, history of
           sales/conveyance



           That the dates associated with the construction of the structures
           on the parcel are correct. We also need to feel assured that the
           ownership and location information are likewise correct.




aisal Foundation requirements




           Up to date information.
           We require having township range and section to identification
           WSDOT property for building permits with acres.

           We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry.

           need the parcels to be displayed on a searchable map, showing
           roads, bodies of water, and critical areas.
Shapefile and metadata are essential

The information is current and acurate

we need the parcel boundaries for area calculations and having
those boundaries close to reality is good to have.




The spatial geometry offered by the Assessor's Office Maps is
very helpful in determining the identification of the parcels in
question. As are parcel size and relation to streets.




Parcel data needs have spatial geometry.
Each parcel needs to have a unique number.
Metadata and clear entity attribute information is necessary




We assume the data is spatially correct, and are as accurate as
possible. We have used parcel data in the past that has been
off as much as 75'. We have had to create our own layer using
title reports to contruct CAD layers to accurately represent the
parcels. If the parcel layers accuracy is > 25' in error it would be
nice to know this.
these are all refered to in previous questions




The parcel data and ID data is need so that we can order parcel
description data from a title company.



Township, Range, Section, 1/4 section, DLC name if applicable,
Mining claims if applicable, often ties to roadways, streams,
cliffs,etc are noted
That the taxable value is given on a parcel and when it was last
valued.

Accuracy - location, identification.




That the data base, have an associated spatial geometry for
easy processing of queries.

I would like to see my preferred attributes in individual layers,
which can be selected one at a time if needed. Also, it would be
great to have a separate window with the selectable layers,
legend, etc.


Each parcel must have associated spatial geometry (GIS) or a
parcel map with legible parcel identification accessible with the
data. If those are not available, a minimum is that Township-
Range-Section is independently identified and that a full parcel
description is included with the parcel data.

We need all parcels to have some identification. Many counties
have blank areas with no idenitfication or information for Federal
and State-owned parcels. This does not work for our purposes.
We need these parcels to have some indication of ownership.
Using a common identifying number for the different ownerships
in this category is fine, but a dictionary that relates those IDs to
owner is needed. It might be helpful to counties to establish
state-standard codes for some ownerships. Such a thing would
also be helpful in that it would make those identities and contact
information consistent. Right now, any given ownership (eg -
DNR) may be written 5 different ways on various parcels within
any county. It is confusing and time-consuming for us to go
through parcels individually to make them all consistent in order
to enable our sorting and search processes.
Line and/or polygon data is needed for mapping.
Your example is a good description of what we expect from
county records.



We require that the data can be related to other information in
BLM's records through Township, Range, Section and Secction
subdivision (most often to the 40 acre level but sometimes to 10
acre level. We also assume that hte data will have
accompanying metadata and comply with standards.

We require that each parcel have the Parcel ID #, and can be
sorted/identified within Township and Range.




The parcel data would need to be in such a form that it could be
imported into an ARC/Info GIS database. Metadata would be
very nice, in any form ...
We expect parcel data to have spatial geometry

We need the parcel outline and location data to be easily
combined with other GIS data, for example lidar images, aerial
photos, and DNR hydro layer.


Preferably the data should include Kitsap County Assessors
Account Numbers or Parcel Identification Number. Or, accurate
spatial data. Section, township, and range are useful for a
general location only as each section is a mile square.



Geometry must be present to be useful and tabular data must
have at least a Parcel Identification Number. Ideally this would
be a unique identifier.




That parcel information be current and reliable.
spatial geometry; Section/Town/Range (desired); data dictionary




We require an accurate polygon showing the boundaries of
tideland and adjacent upland ownership. We would need to
know the date these data were verified, as ownership changes
over time.




This covers it. We need the parcel boundaries to to fit our state
plane south projection and be acurate in relation to the Sec, T, R
which we pull up on another layer. The age of the data is
important, since areas of active growth are being replatted.




As broad as possible is best.


Parcel number needs to be linked with the correct owner and
owner's mailing address.
We require spatial geometry with each parcel so that hunt units
can be mapped accurately.



be useful to relate to TRS
Parcel data is ever changing and it needs to stay current and up-
to-date.


It is assumed that without parcel ID, we could not have a clear
idea of the areas people were interested in leasing. Our aquatic
parcel layer is only an overlay upon the counties.

Data projection documentation is the most important pre-
requisite. Many other attributes are helpful, but without
projection information, the data set is likely to be useless.

Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow

The the parcel layer accurately represents the legal boundaries
it refers to and that it is updated on a regular basis.

The parcel data would need to have some sort of projection to
be incorporated into a GIS, metadata would be required so I
would know how current the data is and who to contact for any
questions
We like a file to have clean geometry and each parcel to have 1
unique parcel ID. We expect the parcel ID to be relatable to
parcel ID’s from other county data sources such as the
assessors and building departments.

Every county we have gotten data from has been different so we
expect to have to clean the data up for our own purposes.




The survey pages 3 to 10 are needed for parcel information
data.


I agree with the above example.




TRS is important, but the main driver is the ability to have color
aerial photos as the base layer,.
We need the Parcel data to be aligned to the Township, range
and section data of the Public Land Survey as closely as
possible since we need to provide water right applicants and
holder with locational data on our Water Right Certificates.


We look for any officially recorded transfer documents.




The official county parcel map, recording all taxlots
Known projection
Spatial geometry
Associated metadata

as above

Annual update of required attributes (UGA designation)




Data source & data accuracy is important to determine the value
of the data rrecieved




We require current legal ownership information for each parcel.



Precise spatial geometry is important. Township, Range, and
Section is possibly useful in lieu of explicit parcel boundaries but
not very desirable.


I'm very happy with whatever you can provide.
Adams County is the only county in our Region that does not
have parcel information. Can you see what you can do about
getting a parcel layer. Thanks.


Spatial geometry is not necessary. We acquire this from legal
descriptions, but use county assessor figures (total areas) for
negotiation and purchase purposes.
We require that the parcel data be updated regularly. Also we
need to keep the original data so that we can track over time the
extent that subdivision of property is taking place. We also
require that each parcel have an associated spatial geometry,
and it would be convenient if the parcel ID be related to T-R and
Section.
Need to have the demisions of lots for the right of way plans to
be accurate

Same as example




Same as example.




Primarily require spatial geometry, acreage or square footage,
Owners name,and county parcel number. data must be
relatively recent - monthly would be nice, perhaps qurterly would
be reasonable and desired - but as minimum semiannual or
annual in order to keep up with recent plats, segregations & etc.




Example above is suitable




It is helpful, but not required with how we are using the
information at this time.
See example.

We know that the values used by counties are not so we do our
own evaluations. By policy we do use the area calculations that
the counties have done.
I require each parcel to have spatial geometry. I also use the
data base so that in the attributes function I can designate a
parcel with a color and change the attribute table so I can later
sort the database to get the relevant information that I need.
I am most definately not tech. savy, so when I get the data for
the parcels from the county I send it to our tech people and they
fix it for me.

all valid parcels within the search radius will be identified, except
for those counties without spatial parcel data.



Spatial geometry is essential!




Again we use townsip range and section for ISIS data input
we use owner, parcel #, & address information for PLP letters
required by law in the MTCA. We also use the acutal boundaries
during investigations with aerial photos of the sites we work with
to evaluate sampling and adjacent parcel use.



We like to have the correct address associated with the parcel
number so that we can go out in the field an find the location.

We need the parcel data required on a JARPA to populate the
tool.




The parcel data needs to be relatively accurate with
orthophotos. We expect that the parcel data will continue to be
updated frequently (at least once a year). We would expect the
content and boundaries are relatively accurate.




We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry.

Documentation.
We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry
or--at the very least--can be related to Township, Range and
Section. Parcel layers would be used in conjunction with field-
gathered data, so known landmarks are very helpful for truthing
this work.


Need associated spatial data

It would be great if the query worked the same way as King
County's web site "Parcel Viewer." A person can query by (1)
Search by Address [house 3 field & street name field]; (2)
Search by Parcel Number; (3) street intersection [enter partial
street names].



Your example pretty well describes our needs
I cannot answer but would work with a GIS person on this.
We require that the parcel data be associated with spatial
geometry (polys)and would assume that the appropriate
metadata be attached as well. Metadata should include in the
very least accuracy information, a data dictionary on the
attributes and projection information.
I require that the county parcels have associated spatial
geometry that have a unique identifier that is used to join to
tabular data.
Additional Requirements
I think all counties should be responsible to update their parcel
layer once a year with current ownership and legal description
information. I do think all parcel #'s should start with the
Township, Section, Range (ie Whatcom).
Up to date information; possibly notation on whether adjacent
parcels belong to same street address and property owner. Can
environmental covenants or deed restrictions be included?

I like the idea of statewide consistant landuse codes, it would
certainly make our life easier! We were going to collect parcel
ID's for Underground Injection Control wells, but decided to not
do that.




Metadata is preferable is additional data attributes are provided.




Data updated quarterly would be preferred.

It would be helpful to have data that is updated each month and
accessible via an FTP site or something similar.


Monthly updates would be great.

it would be helpful, but not necessary, to have the data regularly
updated
Assigning owners unique numbers would help track changes
over time.



It would be helpful for historical ownership information to be
included as far back in history as possible. Owners who
contaminated property are laible no matter how long ago the
contamination took place.
certain landowners (mostly agencies) provide direct payment to
DNR and submit a variety of parcel data. There needs to be a
standard format for incoming parcel information that would allow
rapid review and comparison of county data for that same
parcel. A standard format and software for the counties to use in
providing their data would speed up the review process. Annual
development updates (clearing/grading permits associated with
parcels) could improve our accuracy


It would be nice not to have to perform tabaular joins to add the
wanted attributes to the shapefiles.




Updated data as in the example above would certainly be
helpful.




None.
na


If would be helpful to have data that is updated each month.



Would like to be able to obtain historic data as well as current
ownership to be able to determine site history.
Greater accessability and support staff

Updated data, that would be pie in the sky, especially if the
counties could agree on what to include in the database. We
provide our own unique number in each particular region
(WSDOT) but the Tax Assessors Number is a must-have.




Land use coding consistent with DOR coding and seperate
codes for public and private land (forest).
Inclusion of city and UGA boundary information.




If parcel data could be updated at least annually, and we were
notified of the change when using a layer. This could impact
greatly our calculated land quanities and dollar values in reports.



none


We rely on the information being accurate and updated on a
regular basis, monthly or whatever. Out of date info is of no
use, although parcel history is sometimes useful.




?
the assumption is that the data would be reasonably current
To have the data base updated regularly.


Ability to zoom in and out. Ability to create a printer-friendly page
with custom options (i.e. title, legend, etc.)




A data-update field for each parcel would be cery important, so
that we know how current that parcel (or county) information is.
Data should be updated as change in ownership, change
regarding easements, property sub-division happens and are
recorded vs. waiting for a monthly update


It woudl help us if data could be easily obtained in a standard
form from a trusted or authoritative source and processed with
minimal preparation or massaging of the data. It is also
important that the data is current.


It would be helpful to have data that is updated annually, and
include codes that would indicate if the land has been partially or
fully converted to improved or non-forested property.




It would be useful to have conservation easements and critical
areas borders shown and labled with the parcel outlines.

It would be very helpful if the parcel data is updated once a
month, or on some other frequent, regular basis.




It would be nice to know when the parcel data left the control of
the local jurisdiction. If I get a report of parcel numbers for a
jurisdiction and I want to join them to the Parcel GIS data and if
the dates are very different then I can expect some records to
not match. Knowing that temporal disparity up front can help
understand issues that might arise during processing.


Any special or regular use information available that should be
communicated with customers.
data updated monthly




Information on verification of the data is crucial. There is a
considerable amount of conflicting data being disseminated by
various government agencies regarding tideland ownership.
Much of it is inaccurate. We have found the the only reliable
data is data that we can confirm ourselves by going to the beach
and identifying survey monuments.


Have frequent updates would be helpful.




Current data is critical.




Consistent data would be very helpful, and a better
understanding of what the parcel ID means. Some parcel IDs
include T/S/R within them. Others do not.

Land use and development history infomration would be useful,
especially to the extent that it permits evaluation of drainage or
landform modifications. In addition, particularly useful features
include any information that provides data on presence/absence
of irrigation, septic systems, communal water supply, water
wells, or past geologic or geotechnical investigations at the site.

Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide
hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in
survey response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944
(confirmation code). Please refer to that survey response for
additional detail.
Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000.
Use of parcel data generally resembles that employed for
Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation
mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code).
Please refer to that survey response for additional detail.

Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow
stratigraphic characterization project generally resembles use of
parcel data for Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard
zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey
response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation
code). Please refer to that survey response for additional detail.

It would be great if the data was updated each month.




It would be great if Site address were included along with the
associated Post Office Name, and Zip Code.




monthly updates would be ideal, especially if linked with
existence of associated recorded documents.

Using consistent land use codes is important to determine
actual use. Also, non-abbreviated zoning classification is
important so we can look up use regulations per jurisdiction.

We need current information however the need for quick
updated information is usually not needed due to relatively
uncommon land ownership change.

In addition to the example above, it would be very helpful if
parcel data could be downloaded as a file that can be used in
ARC Map.




n/a
We would like to see the counties Department of health or other
angencies provide us data that includes if the parcel has a well
on it or not.




Annual update necessary.
Ideal for me would be an update in the fall, but that is not
necessary.


as above

 all of the county maps compiled to a standard state wide base
map




Current data is most useful.

Would like to be able to find the most recent images of a county.

Wish that state-wide (all counties) information was available to
every region, that Geo-referencing was easier, that it was easier
finding data on the workbench - specifically State Route layer
and MP layer.
Prompt updates are helpful. However, we rely on legal
descriptions from title reports, not assessor's descriptions for
parcel boundaries.
as stated above. The more accurate the data is that you use.
The more accurate the end product will be. The less time would
be spent on correcting errors
Same as example
Having the ID numbers correspond to state and local register
listings would clear up cofusion. If they are different then this
should be stated clearly and have all possible ID numbers
provided with whatever source the number is assigned by.

Same as example.
It would be helpful to be able to select a stream and have a list
of all landowners (top to bottom or bottom to top) without having
to select each individual parcel.


If there is taxsifter (mapsifter, etc..) county web site info
pertaining to individual parcels; it would be very useful to
hyperlink the URL to the feature parcels in the layer. this
provides instant access to the county's parcel information which
fills a lot of gaps and gives additional useful information on the
parcel. Both Okanogan county and Douglas County currently
provide the taxsifter hyperlink. Otherwise, a field containing the
apprppropriate URL for each parcel can be created from the
parcel number field and joined to the parcels dbf/attributes file.




GIS/GPS info on the parcels would really be beneficial.
not sure




I don't know how you are going to update and maintain this. It's
enough work at the community level with all the development
going on!


It would be helpful to have good addresses for owners and
occupant(s). This way we do not have to spend a lot of time and
money creating the address lists mandated by law during public
comment periods under MTCA.




Owner unique ID
It would be helpful to know how recently a parcel was surveyed,
especially if witness posts are referenced. We once used parcel
data to excavate a witness post that had been on a small lagoon
bank but had since been covered by the egress channel. A
metal detector and some digging exposed the property marker.
We couldn't have done this without the parcel data showing
location of witness posts.
updated monthly or quarterly

It would be helpful if current & former addresses were
associated with the parcel #. Sometimes we get a report
AFTER a building has been demolished & there is no current
address listing in the county parcel viewer web site.




I think I can do our work with the information already proposed.
However, the critical areas info and the wetlands info could be
useful in narrowing searches if already provided with the parcel
data. Otherwise, I can simply query using multiple data sets.

An annual update is sufficient for my data needs. I currently
have over 2.6 million unique statewide parcels that represent 27
counties. At this rate, I am able to update 2 counties each
month.
Steps
I request is from the county in which I work. I also recieve SDE layers from the agency
I work.


We go online to the county assessor's office to obtain the data, including map views.
This is for preliminary (scoping) use. Parcel information is used in publically available
GIS data websites, usually state or county internet sources.

I have only used parcel data occasionally, and usually Ecology has it through a data
agreement with the county. I don't try to do this analysis for areas where we don't
have easy access to parcel data. In addition, the same would go for service area GIS
polygons. If we don't have those, it won't help unless the parcel data shows drinking
water source. This also goes for analyzing areas that are on septic.

I believe we get parcel shapefiles from different counties. I convert these into file
geodatabase feature classes to improve performance. I query the parcel layer in
ArcMap and sometimes use the layer to make other data.
Department of Ecology (Rich Kim) collects the parcel data for our agency every year.
Currently we do use the data in our application because of licensing agreements that
is different with every county we’ve acquired data from. However, ever site manager
has told us parcel numbers/locations is extremely important for their work. This
assists in contacting property owner and talking with the counties about a location
instead of using an address or a latitude/longitude. Additionally, there can be
restrictive covenants from environmental cleanups and it is hard to get a loan from a
bank if a property is not “clean”. Many site mangers/consultants collect parcel data
for their individual projects.

Each county has been contacted and the data obtained is then post processed if
needed in order to standardize the coordinate system.
Our GIS lead contacts the counties of itnerest and request the spatial and tabular
parcel date. The spatial data is re-projected, if necessary, to match the needs of our
project. We then use the spatial and tabular data to analysize and determine correct
place of use of water right.
Download from Ecology Server

this project is a desired project, as such we have not identified a workflow.

All work for this project is in Seattle/Tukwila. King County Parcel viewer is primary
source of this information. Informations needs vary by property/site



We use the search tools to find parcel data using the property address. We then print
out this information.
First of all I have a lot of cobwebs to shake off because this project is done a few
months out of every year; I need to relearn how to work in arcview. I contact the
counties and request spatial and tabular data. I then sort through all the data to
eliminate all the information that I don't need. I also try to convert the date into a
format that I can easily use. I enlist additional help to link the parcels shape files to
certain data attributes i.e those parcels paying FFPA are highlighted with a
transparent green for quick identification. I review the color coded parcel shape files
over aerial photos to correlate land appearence with the forest protection assessment.
Tabular data is used to further refine development,land use, acreage, and
owner/taxpayer info.
We - either water right mappers - or Ecology's data administrator, join any provided,
desired tabular attributes to the parcel shapefiles.

I pull the parcel data from Ecology servers. I then highlight selected parcels based on
visual cues on aerial photos or a table search for owner names.



Log on to the county website and download the available data.

I request our project design office obtain parcel information from the web. They
produce both a table and an overlay (either on an aerial photo or on plan sheets) of
the information. I forward that information to my cultural resources on-call consultant.
They note all structures over 50 years old in the project area. When they do their
fieldwork, they photograph each structure on that list. They gather background
information on each structure - year built, condition, use (original or current), who built
it, and other, related information. They write up that information for each structure.
They then compare the locations of these structures with the project description, and
try to determine whether the project will have an effect on a particular structure. They
prepare an "Inventory Form" for each project. They say whether, in their opinion, the
structure is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. They say whether, in
their opinion, our project will have an effect on the structure. They say whether that
effect will be adverse or not. It is a big savings in time and money when I am able to
provide the consultant with this information and not have them do it themselves.
I use online county records and other sources (private databases, Multiple Listing
Service) to gather information about the subject of my appraisal, then contact the
owner to set up an appointment for an inspection. I also use the same sources to find
similar properties to compare to my subject, and inspect their exteriors from the road.
The parcel data is important to make sure I can find the correct parcel. If anything
comes to my attention in any of these steps, or if I can't get the information I need
from the online records, then I will call or go to the county office and speak to
someone in person. Most of the information I gather from all the sources goes into
my appraisal report, which is shared with the property owner, and becomes a
permanent Department of Transportation record.

First we look at GIS parcel data, then go to county seat if necessary.




contact the county via website to find the gis parcel data.
Currently we get parcel data during an event to use as a layer for response, planning
and mitigation mapping.
Log on to county assessor web site and look for parcel data. If the data is un available
on-line i call the assessors office and discuss with their personel.
I've said it all previously.



I usually look to see if county has a website that I can access parcels numbers.
Otherwise, I contact county office by phone.


I use the .sde layer's attribute table and select polygons of interest to view desired
attributes.
I just look it up for historical information and tracking PLPs.
We look up the street address on the Couty Assessor's Office website, identify the tax
parcel, get the ownership information to send the Early Notice Letter to, print a copy
for the file, enter the tax parcel number in a field in our contaminated sites database.
Looke to see if there were previous owners that may have contributed to the
contamination, for possible future early notice letter transmittal. Look to see if other
tax parcels were also part of a larger, historic contaminated site.

We request parcel data from each county once a year, usually in December. Each
county parcel layer is projected to Wa. State Plane, South, NAD83 HARN, feet which
is our agency standard. Land use codes are identified and revalued into a common
data item. Parcel id number is combined with each county FIPS number into a
standard parcel_id number. Owner name and address is added to each common data
item.
When complete, each separate county parcel layer is combined into a statewide GIS
SDE layer.
Our GIS staff contacts a resource agency to gain access to their data. They then
make it available to all users by placing it out of a regional server. From there I bring
in the layers to analyze project impacts, and construct maps.



I use the county assessors web sit to obtain the information needed as described
previously

We usually start with our internal GIS mapping and county information that has been
downloaded, tax parcel no., current owner, etc. Then we go to the individual counties
to get the most current information on a particular parcel.
Currently we find parcel data from county. Once that is done we order a Title Report
for a title company. Once we recieved the Title Report we layout the parcel info in our
design software. We calculate the total parcel, then we calc our needs for Right of
Way. Then we turn this info over to our Right of Way department.

Rerieve parcel/survey data from county records.
Parcel determination is then computed.
Areas are compared to the county records.
Names are compared to title reports
Restrictions, easements, etc. are noted.
I usually go to the counties internet site and do a search using a legal, property owner
name or parcel number to review the parcel information.



I match a given parcel number with the GIS data developed by the Okanogan County
Assessor's office. Once the parcel number is located and selected, I can access
most other county department data associated with this parcel, such as zoning,
plannning, building, health, etc. The spatial data on existing GIS layers can be
intersected with data from other sources (soils, wells, wetlands, etc.) to complete the
office assessment of any risk that may be posed to humans or the environment on the
subject property or neighboring parcels.

The agency that has the necessary data is contacted and there data is acquired. The
data is placed on a local server and then incorporated into GIS data set.

We would first use the owner information for contact purposes, then use the critical
areas information for environmental risk determinations, then use the maps or aerial
photos for documentation/reporting purposes.



Where spatial (GIS) data are available, we request the entire layer from the county.
We intersect our study points or areas with those layers and then extract the resulting
parcel IDs and associated parcel data from teh layer. When the parcel landowner
information is in a separate table, the resulting parcel IDs are selected from the
tabular data and that information is merged back with the site-parcelID data. If we do
not have current landowner data tables (tax rolls) from the county, we can go to the
county web site and look up information on the parcel individually. However, this is
tedious and not feasible in cases where we may have tens or hundreds of landowners
in a county.

Section-Twnshp-Rng are also used to call up aerial photos from multiple sources in
order to initially evaluate site suitability prior to contacting landowners.




We incorporate county corner data into the Geographic Coordinate Database as the
base for our GIS layers.

use title reports for base-map construction.
Determine present WSDOT ownership. Add adjacent propety parcels to base-map.
Design new highway construction needs.
Identify additional private property needed to build the improvements. Prepare a new
set of Right of Way plan sheets. Contact each property owner to settle on
acquisitions.
Enter township section and range of project area to determine existing survey records
in the project area. Review data, maps, etc. that are available and derive additional
information that will assist in determining ownership. Use county auditor file numbers
to acquire any additional information related to the property

We contact the county and request data or research this informaiton in the records.




We request parcel data by Township from each county in both spatial and tabular
format. That data is overlaid and color coded by parcels that are paying or not paying
FFPA. Townships are reviewed sequentially by quarter section. Using DNR aerial
photo layers, parcels that are non-paying are evaluated to determine if the parcel
should be subject to FFPA. If a determination can not be made from that data and
photo, a 'boots on the ground' audit of the parcel must be made by visiting the site.
Changes are recorded in Excel or Database format and submitted to the Resource
Protection Division at the Dept. of Natural Resources. The RP division submits
changes to the Assessor of each county.
We use parcel data on which to base our recommendations to local jurisdictions
regarding their GMA obligations.

We aren't currently using GIS parcel (or other GIS) data in this project, but would if it
were available.

we project the spatial data along with our BIDN spatial dataset and correct our dataset
as necessary.
We are not yet sure. We would use the data in analyses that are not yet designed.




when we download the various site lists if parcel data is included we could easily
integrate the information into our existing GIS system and SQL databases. The data
is then used by all the Environmental Health Programs. For Example the Drinking
Water program would be able to identify parcels within 1000' of a landfill where
drinking water wells are prohibited.


This depends on the data obtained from the jurisdictions. Sometimes format
conversions, reprojections, joining tables, dissolving on attributes or other random
processes are necessary.




Due to the nature of the job, the information needs to be 1. easily and 2. quickly
obtainable. Clark County parcel information is very helpful and, of for the most part,
easily found. Other counties do not provide parcel information.
Presently use whatever parcel data is available on the Internet; if it's not available on
the Internet, then we must go to the county courthouse to obtain the information,
which is not a very efficient use of our time (we're centrally located in Olympia; when
we're planning work in far away counties, it's impractical for us to go there in person).
Once we have the parcel information, we use it to identify existing data, contact
landowners (if necessary) and identify data gaps that need to be filled.

We obtain all available data on tidelands ownership, whether from WA DNR,
Counties, or State Parks, then compare these with plates from county assessors to
locate physical monuments that can be used to verify the actual boundaries. We then
visit the beach in question to locate the monuments and obtain sub-meter GPS
coordinates. Corrected polygons are then used to verify boundary locations.



We have a shape file for one county (Cowlitz). The GIS staff worked with the file to fit
it to our projection. For two counties, Lewis and Clark we go out to the county GIS
sites. In other counties we have to call the county planning department.




A wide variety of uses

Identify and research potential acquisition targets and/or adjoining ownerships that
may be owned by a party that may manage their land in a fashion that compliments
agency goals.


We used the parcel data that is available on our agency's SQL server. We drew hunt
unit polygons by snapping to the parcel boundary and road and building buffers.

I use the web or don't bother at all. I have no time to contact county officials.


We request/purchase the data from the county. We use the spatial and tabular data
to identify the parcels associated with development. We use the parcel data to look
what development has already occurred to analyze how cougars have responded
over the last 6 years.
Locate the county assessor's website > enter the parcel ID > bring it up on database >
collect metadata > bring up on any interactive map, if offered.


We first obtain the data from the county, then project it to match our GIS project
standard before incorporating it into our GIS project. Once the data are integrated
into our GIS project, we refer to the parcel information intermittently on an as-needed
basis to gain insights on land use, land use boundaries, land use history, ownership or
owner contact information.


Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation
mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.
Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000. Use of parcel data
generally resembles that employed for Thurston County marine shores landslide

f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.


Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow stratigraphic characterization
project generally resembles use of parcel data for Thurston County marine shores
landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.


Our agency maintains a statewide parcel layer. When the location or boundary of a
parcel is needed for water right processing, it is simply added as a GIS layer.

I receive an ordinance and from the legal description start to draw in the area being
annexed. Sometime the legal description mentions parcels as a descriptor.


After requesting the data we re-project it. Add XY coordinates at the label point of
each parcel and use the resulting coordinates to make a label point file. This label
point file is unioned with a 2000 Census block file. The resulting file is read into SAS
where it is related to other tabular data sets such as building permit files.




We compare the parcel location with our species and habitat database information if
reviewing a development proposal. We conduct analysis of land use patterns and
growth potential to review comprehensive plan amendments sent to us for formal
review by cities and counties.
Our department usually works with the county to get parcel information however I do
not know how often. We project the data over an aerial map with our right of way and
any associated other GIS data for first, conceptual planning, then ordering of title
reports, then contacting property owners, etc.



In Spokane / Stevens County, all needed info is available on line. In Pend Oreille
county, we sit in the assessor's office and review parcel information against hard copy
plat maps and orthos. Lincoln county provides us with a print out of parcel info, and
has pdf files on line of parcel boundaries over orthophotos by section.


We plot the original lode claims, and patented claims on the screen copy and use
these files in reports specific to each mine.
We have the data available to us on our Department of Ecology GIS servers with the
necessary projections already done. All we have to do is load it into our GIS map
documents.



1. Request Title Status Reports through the BIA.
2. Prepare abstract/chain of title for fee lands.
3. Verify status of trust lands.
4. Verify description as spatially correct in relation to adjouners.
5. Prepare status maps in a spatial database, mappable in ARCGis
Contact the County Assessor's office to request parcel layer. If it is available, when it
is received (usually CD-ROM), it is projected. There is no additional processing, as
it's used as a backcover for editing only. Plans are underway for agency
geodatabase, where all parcel layers will be placed.
use county data


We produce a statewide map showing the UGA and cities. We would like to be able
to calculate the changes over time in each of the counties. We would also follow-up
with each county to document the legislative action taken to change the UGA
boundaries.
After requesting the data we re-project it. We sometimes clean up site address
information if it is available and if necessary. Then we use the data for maps.


First, locate available websites for data available for download. Then make contacts
to counties or state agencies to fill in the gaps.
Next assess the data for source, accuracy, currentness.
Next develop a process to transform the data into our format
Next filter the data to extract what we need
Next incorporate the adta into our dataset
Next perform a critical analysis to confirm the accuracy of the data.
We gather parcel information from the Title company, the County's website,
Metroscan, Stellant and DocEdge.




Jim Ruhoff (NCR's "parcel layer" guru) takes care of creating the parcel layers for our
region. The rest of us are just users of the data he provides.




Legal descriptions based on township, ranges and sections are transformed into our
own project datum.
We currently receive the GIS parcel data for Yakima, Kittitas, Frankland, Benton, and
Walla Walla Counties.




I pull a county assessor's map and then go to their web site and pull up each tax
parcel and print the information. I then put it into a spread sheet that allows us to mail
merge all letters and permits that go out.
I am an end user of parcel data and don't get involved with this step.




Same as example.
We start at the mouth of a stream and begin to record every parcel number that the
particular stream runs through along with corresponding landowner name and
address. We then use this information and a local phone book to get phone numbers.
We then contact each individual landowner by phone or in person for access to walk
the stream and conduct our surveys.
Primarily, we obtain the parcel layer from the county - generally avaialble for download
from the county ftp or web site - then rename according to our conventions, assure it
includes the necessary projection definition, and andd any desired metadata - usually
imported from the previous layer obtained and used. We do have one County (Grant
County) that requires membership in a $600/yr data co-op in order to obtain the parcel
layer. Grant county also provides an extensive Excel database containing parcel and
ownership information relevant to each parcel in the layer. We find that we need to
join improvement and owner information conatined in this database to the parcel layer
in order to make it suitable to our needs.

parcels shown on an aerial photo with other relevant data (see other response). First
cut list developed from aerial photo analysis in relation to project mitigation needs.
Spreadsheet developed of relavant parcels with landower information, parcel ID
number, acreage, zoning, improvements, critical areas restrictions, etc.



I utlize maps to obtain parcel ID #'s, then use that to search and obtain desired
information.
The assessor maps are used to lay out our right of way maps. The appraiser is given
a copy of the title commitment which is based on county recorded info. He also has
the assessor info and the contact info from the Treasurer.

The negotiations are with the party of record which may not be the person living on
the property.

All along we all use the aerial photos and those contour maps available.
I contact the countyies of interst and request the spatial and tabular data. I then send
this infomation to our tech people with a letter of what I want to do with it, then they
send me back layers I then use.




1) Identify site location by existing Ecology Facility/Site database query
2) Use GIS spatial analysis to select parcel features within a given search radius
3) Extract Landowner information from the intersected parcel record set.
4) Use record set for site notification bulk mailing.

If it's available on the web, we start with that. At some point we usually have to
request the tabular data (with owner data, addresses, value, etc.) from the county if it
is not included in thie datasets. We register flood maps or use dFIRM data to then
support our objectives of floodplain management or disaster response.

we graphically search the dataset with aerial photos and roads to find the parcels of
interest and then read the corresponding information directly from the table.

It would be wonderful to be able to create a buffer of 1/2 mile around this parcel(s)
and cut the address information from the parcels data set to create an address list.



I contact the county assessors data and get the parcel numbers. I then use the
overlays provided to answer all the questions on the SEPA checklist. I also use the
parcel data to find out a date of sale or the current owner of a property.
We are still in the process of developing the tool so this application has not been
integrated yet.
On an annual basis we contact each County or download their parcel data from their
Web site if available. The parcel data layer is then converted to centroids and
unprojected to the geographic coordinate system. All the counties are then merged
into a single layer for use as a geocoding reference theme.


Currently, we do have the parcel layers for some counties. We have a standard file
that we use that already has the link to the parcel layer, and we just have to check the
checkbox to turn it on.

It would be very helpful to get the parcel layer for the other counties. At least one
county parcel layer, only has information for the unincorporated area; it would be very
very helpful to get it for the entire county, including the cities.

Alternatively, for some counties, we do obtain some parcel information by going to the
respective county web site.


Parcel data were incorporated in a past species data management application
(ArcView 3.x). Spatial and tabular data were acquired from each county where it was
available and not cost-prohibitive. It was projected to match the master database and
formatted to standardize fields across county parcel layers for use with a
navigation/query tool built into the data management application.
Depending on the county we are working in, we either use GIS layers provided by the
county, or one of us goes to the assessor's office to dig through maps and make
copies. We then pore over these maps and our own GIS layers & orthophotos to
make property boundary determinations.



Project the spatial data on map to verify the owner of a road crossing or known barrier
at a road crossing.
We first go to the county's parcel viewer web site and query by street address or
street intersection. After finding site, click on the property report to get taxpayer and
buyer info. Might click on adjacent properties, especially if web site has no address
for first site (building demolished - no current address.)




Currently, we use an "on the ground" approach to identify likely parcels. We then
acquire information from the county's PATS website. We georeference an image
(maybe digitize parcel boundaries) and overlay our data to determine if the parcel is a
good candidate for acquisition.

The county and I agree to a data exchange agreement if the data is not available
online. When I receive the data, I strip out all attributes except for the Parcel
Identification Number (PIN). I execute a SAS program that takes each unique PIN
value for that county and updates the appropriate table in oracle. A second oracle
table (parcel_info) is updated with the appropriate situs address information (address,
city, state, zip). Centrus is used to standardize all of the situs address information for
this county, and assigns the standardized values back into oracle. When the
parcel_info table has been updated, I join it to the original parcel shapefile and
exported to a geodatabase featureclass. The resulting featureclass is then used to
create a locator file for use in geocoding new address information. A third oracle
table (assessor_info) contains all of the extra attributes that are provided by the
county, or can be obtained from the county's website. This table includes the owner's
name and address information, property description, building value, building square
footage, land value, and improvement value.

Participant ID Assumption



     2059723
             Parcel expected to have associated polygons and preferably
             unambiguous owner or street addresses. Metadata needed for
             quality control. Parcel polygons expected to be within
     2059739 established standards for spatial accuracy.
             Definitely need a data dictionary, township, range and section
             nice if we wanted to look up a well log and try to match it to a
             parcel. The well logs don't always have address, but they are
             required to have township, range, section, quarter-quarter.

     2059802
               Accuracy, they have to match up correctly w/ township and
               section data. How current they are is also important.
     2059838
               We require this data to identify parcel geometry, parcel
               numbers, owner names and owner addresses.




     2066180
             Digital parcel polygons (spatial geometry) is preferred. A
     2066184 standardized data dictionary would be very useful.
             The example given with this question is my response.


     2066187
             Spatial references essential. Date of update must be included
     2066220 sice counties will refresh information regularly.
             All data shall come with metadata.
     2066308
             Need data dictionary
     2066357
     2066360 The example above says it all.
             Spatial geometry is required so that the parcel can be identified
     2066371 in the field using gps.
             None


     2066549
          each parcel has associated spatial geometry, parcel can be
          related to Township Range and Section, data has data
          dictionary, spatial data uses same coordinate system DNR uses,




2066602
        We expect county parcel datalayers to have associated spatial
        geometry, and accompanying metadata. We like parcel IDs,
2066671 TRS and complete legal descriptions.

2066750
        physical address, owner name, mailing address, history of
2066804 sales/conveyance
2066842
2066901
        That the dates associated with the construction of the structures
        on the parcel are correct. We also need to feel assured that the
        ownership and location information are likewise correct.




2066908




2066932
2066949 Up to date information.
        We require having township range and section to identification
        WSDOT property for building permits with acres.
2066987
        We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry.
2067008
        need the parcels to be displayed on a searchable map, showing
2067087 roads, bodies of water, and critical areas.

2067120
          Shapefile and metadata are essential
2067130
          The information is current and acurate
2067143
          we need the parcel boundaries for area calculations and having
          those boundaries close to reality is good to have.

2067327

2067769
2068156

2068820
2068955
          The spatial geometry offered by the Assessor's Office Maps is
          very helpful in determining the identification of the parcels in
          question. As are parcel size and relation to streets.



2069345
          Parcel data needs have spatial geometry.
          Each parcel needs to have a unique number.
          Metadata and clear entity attribute information is necessary




2070856
        We assume the data is spatially correct, and are as accurate as
        possible. We have used parcel data in the past that has been
        off as much as 75'. We have had to create our own layer using
        title reports to contruct CAD layers to accurately represent the
        parcels. If the parcel layers accuracy is > 25' in error it would be
2070879 nice to know this.
        these are all refered to in previous questions
2070927
2070955


2070970
          The parcel data and ID data is need so that we can order parcel
          description data from a title company.


2070994
          Township, Range, Section, 1/4 section, DLC name if applicable,
          Mining claims if applicable, often ties to roadways, streams,
          cliffs,etc are noted


2071012
        That the taxable value is given on a parcel and when it was last
2071041 valued.
2071068 Accuracy - location, identification.
2071355
2071513
          That the data base, have an associated spatial geometry for
          easy processing of queries.
2071590
        I would like to see my preferred attributes in individual layers,
        which can be selected one at a time if needed. Also, it would be
        great to have a separate window with the selectable layers,
2071610 legend, etc.
2073141
        Each parcel must have associated spatial geometry (GIS) or a
        parcel map with legible parcel identification accessible with the
        data. If those are not available, a minimum is that Township-
        Range-Section is independently identified and that a full parcel
        description is included with the parcel data.

        We need all parcels to have some identification. Many counties
        have blank areas with no idenitfication or information for Federal
        and State-owned parcels. This does not work for our purposes.
        We need these parcels to have some indication of ownership.
        Using a common identifying number for the different ownerships
        in this category is fine, but a dictionary that relates those IDs to
        owner is needed. It might be helpful to counties to establish
        state-standard codes for some ownerships. Such a thing would
        also be helpful in that it would make those identities and contact
        information consistent. Right now, any given ownership (eg -
        DNR) may be written 5 different ways on various parcels within
        any county. It is confusing and time-consuming for us to go
        through parcels individually to make them all consistent in order
2073513 to enable our sorting and search processes.
        Line and/or polygon data is needed for mapping.
2074025
2074560




2076208
          Your example is a good description of what we expect from
          county records.


2076306
          We require that the data can be related to other information in
          BLM's records through Township, Range, Section and Secction
          subdivision (most often to the 40 acre level but sometimes to 10
          acre level. We also assume that hte data will have
          accompanying metadata and comply with standards.
2076328
          We require that each parcel have the Parcel ID #, and can be
          sorted/identified within Township and Range.




2076499

2076629
2076636
        The parcel data would need to be in such a form that it could be
        imported into an ARC/Info GIS database. Metadata would be
2076643 very nice, in any form ...
        We expect parcel data to have spatial geometry
2076648
        We need the parcel outline and location data to be easily
        combined with other GIS data, for example lidar images, aerial
2076691 photos, and DNR hydro layer.

2076701
          Preferably the data should include Kitsap County Assessors
          Account Numbers or Parcel Identification Number. Or, accurate
          spatial data. Section, township, and range are useful for a
          general location only as each section is a mile square.
2076814
2076856
2076875
          Geometry must be present to be useful and tabular data must
          have at least a Parcel Identification Number. Ideally this would
          be a unique identifier.



2076892
2076900
          That parcel information be current and reliable.

2077140
2077191
          spatial geometry; Section/Town/Range (desired); data dictionary




2077568
          We require an accurate polygon showing the boundaries of
          tideland and adjacent upland ownership. We would need to
          know the date these data were verified, as ownership changes
          over time.

2077784
2077929
          This covers it. We need the parcel boundaries to to fit our state
          plane south projection and be acurate in relation to the Sec, T, R
          which we pull up on another layer. The age of the data is
          important, since areas of active growth are being replatted.
2077954
2077981
2078040
          As broad as possible is best.

2079584
        Parcel number needs to be linked with the correct owner and
2079594 owner's mailing address.
        We require spatial geometry with each parcel so that hunt units
        can be mapped accurately.
2079608
2080065
2080175 be useful to relate to TRS
        Parcel data is ever changing and it needs to stay current and up-
        to-date.

2080258
          It is assumed that without parcel ID, we could not have a clear
          idea of the areas people were interested in leasing. Our aquatic
          parcel layer is only an overlay upon the counties.
2080264
          Data projection documentation is the most important pre-
          requisite. Many other attributes are helpful, but without
          projection information, the data set is likely to be useless.



2081116
        Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide

          response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation
          code). Please refer to that survey response for additional detail.
2081387
          The the parcel layer accurately represents the legal boundaries
          it refers to and that it is updated on a regular basis.
2082537
        The parcel data would need to have some sort of projection to
        be incorporated into a GIS, metadata would be required so I
        would know how current the data is and who to contact for any
2086880 questions
        We like a file to have clean geometry and each parcel to have 1
        unique parcel ID. We expect the parcel ID to be relatable to
        parcel ID’s from other county data sources such as the
        assessors and building departments.

          Every county we have gotten data from has been different so we
          expect to have to clean the data up for our own purposes.

2087919

2088142



2088619
          The survey pages 3 to 10 are needed for parcel information
          data.

2090640
          I agree with the above example.

2090814




2091217
2091747
        TRS is important, but the main driver is the ability to have color
2091786 aerial photos as the base layer,.
        We need the Parcel data to be aligned to the Township, range
        and section data of the Public Land Survey as closely as
        possible since we need to provide water right applicants and
        holder with locational data on our Water Right Certificates.

2107702
        Precise spatial geometry is important. Township, Range, and
        Section is possibly useful in lieu of explicit parcel boundaries but
2107731 not very desirable.
2108039
2108049
        I'm very happy with whatever you can provide.
        Adams County is the only county in our Region that does not
        have parcel information. Can you see what you can do about
        getting a parcel layer. Thanks.

2108318
        Spatial geometry is not necessary. We acquire this from legal
        descriptions, but use county assessor figures (total areas) for
2108660 negotiation and purchase purposes.
        We require that the parcel data be updated regularly. Also we
        need to keep the original data so that we can track over time the
        extent that subdivision of property is taking place. We also
        require that each parcel have an associated spatial geometry,
        and it would be convenient if the parcel ID be related to T-R and
2108735 Section.
        Need to have the demisions of lots for the right of way plans to

2111095
2111221 Same as example.
2111350
          Primarily require spatial geometry, acreage or square footage,
          Owners name,and county parcel number. data must be
          relatively recent - monthly would be nice, perhaps qurterly would
          be reasonable and desired - but as minimum semiannual or
          annual in order to keep up with recent plats, segregations & etc.




2111456
          Example above is suitable



2111773
        It is helpful, but not required with how we are using the
2112310 information at this time.
        See example.
2112888
        We know that the values used by counties are not so we do our
        own evaluations. By policy we do use the area calculations that
        the counties have done.




2114965
          I require each parcel to have spatial geometry. I also use the
          data base so that in the attributes function I can designate a
          parcel with a color and change the attribute table so I can later
          sort the database to get the relevant information that I need.
          I am most definately not tech. savy, so when I get the data for
          the parcels from the county I send it to our tech people and they
          fix it for me.
2115454
          all valid parcels within the search radius will be identified, except
          for those counties without spatial parcel data.


2116619
          Spatial geometry is essential!



2118062
          Again we use townsip range and section for ISIS data input
          we use owner, parcel #, & address information for PLP letters
          required by law in the MTCA. We also use the acutal boundaries
          during investigations with aerial photos of the sites we work with
          to evaluate sampling and adjacent parcel use.


2118485
          We like to have the correct address associated with the parcel
          number so that we can go out in the field an find the location.
2119143
        We need the parcel data required on a JARPA to populate the
2126320 tool.



2127312
2127543
2127661
          The parcel data needs to be relatively accurate with
          orthophotos. We expect that the parcel data will continue to be
          updated frequently (at least once a year). We would expect the
          content and boundaries are relatively accurate.




2131998
          We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry.
2132063
          Documentation.



2132075
          We require that each parcel have associated spatial geometry
          or--at the very least--can be related to Township, Range and
          Section. Parcel layers would be used in conjunction with field-
          gathered data, so known landmarks are very helpful for truthing
          this work.

2132147
          Need associated spatial data
2132174
        It would be great if the query worked the same way as King
        County's web site "Parcel Viewer." A person can query by (1)
        Search by Address [house 3 field & street name field]; (2)
        Search by Parcel Number; (3) street intersection [enter partial
2132295 street names].
2132299
2132715 Your example pretty well describes our needs
2132915 I cannot answer but would work with a GIS person on this.
        We require that the parcel data be associated with spatial
        geometry (polys)and would assume that the appropriate
        metadata be attached as well. Metadata should include in the
        very least accuracy information, a data dictionary on the
2134547 attributes and projection information.
        I require that the county parcels have associated spatial
        geometry that have a unique identifier that is used to join to
        tabular data.




2134643
Additional Requirements
I think all counties should be responsible to update their parcel
layer once a year with current ownership and legal description
information. I do think all parcel #'s should start with the
Township, Section, Range (ie Whatcom).
Up to date information; possibly notation on whether adjacent
parcels belong to same street address and property owner. Can
environmental covenants or deed restrictions be included?

I like the idea of statewide consistant landuse codes, it would
certainly make our life easier! We were going to collect parcel
ID's for Underground Injection Control wells, but decided to not
do that.




Metadata is preferable is additional data attributes are provided.




Data updated quarterly would be preferred.

It would be helpful to have data that is updated each month and
accessible via an FTP site or something similar.


Monthly updates would be great.

it would be helpful, but not necessary, to have the data regularly
updated
Assigning owners unique numbers would help track changes
over time.



It would be helpful for historical ownership information to be
included as far back in history as possible. Owners who
contaminated property are laible no matter how long ago the
contamination took place.
certain landowners (mostly agencies) provide direct payment to
DNR and submit a variety of parcel data. There needs to be a
standard format for incoming parcel information that would allow
rapid review and comparison of county data for that same
parcel. A standard format and software for the counties to use in
providing their data would speed up the review process. Annual
development updates (clearing/grading permits associated with
parcels) could improve our accuracy


It would be nice not to have to perform tabaular joins to add the
wanted attributes to the shapefiles.




Updated data as in the example above would certainly be
helpful.




None.
na


If would be helpful to have data that is updated each month.



Would like to be able to obtain historic data as well as current
ownership to be able to determine site history.
Greater accessability and support staff

Updated data, that would be pie in the sky, especially if the
counties could agree on what to include in the database. We
provide our own unique number in each particular region
(WSDOT) but the Tax Assessors Number is a must-have.




Land use coding consistent with DOR coding and seperate
codes for public and private land (forest).
Inclusion of city and UGA boundary information.




If parcel data could be updated at least annually, and we were
notified of the change when using a layer. This could impact
greatly our calculated land quanities and dollar values in reports.



none


We rely on the information being accurate and updated on a
regular basis, monthly or whatever. Out of date info is of no
use, although parcel history is sometimes useful.




?
the assumption is that the data would be reasonably current
To have the data base updated regularly.


Ability to zoom in and out. Ability to create a printer-friendly page
with custom options (i.e. title, legend, etc.)



A data-update field for each parcel would be cery important, so
that we know how current that parcel (or county) information is.




Data should be updated as change in ownership, change
regarding easements, property sub-division happens and are
recorded vs. waiting for a monthly update
It woudl help us if data could be easily obtained in a standard
form from a trusted or authoritative source and processed with
minimal preparation or massaging of the data. It is also
important that the data is current.


It would be helpful to have data that is updated annually, and
include codes that would indicate if the land has been partially or
fully converted to improved or non-forested property.




It would be useful to have conservation easements and critical
areas borders shown and labled with the parcel outlines.

It would be very helpful if the parcel data is updated once a
month, or on some other frequent, regular basis.




It would be nice to know when the parcel data left the control of
the local jurisdiction. If I get a report of parcel numbers for a
jurisdiction and I want to join them to the Parcel GIS data and if
the dates are very different then I can expect some records to
not match. Knowing that temporal disparity up front can help
understand issues that might arise during processing.


Any special or regular use information available that should be
communicated with customers.


data updated monthly
Information on verification of the data is crucial. There is a
considerable amount of conflicting data being disseminated by
various government agencies regarding tideland ownership.
Much of it is inaccurate. We have found the the only reliable
data is data that we can confirm ourselves by going to the beach
and identifying survey monuments.

Have frequent updates would be helpful.




Current data is critical.




Consistent data would be very helpful, and a better
understanding of what the parcel ID means. Some parcel IDs
include T/S/R within them. Others do not.

Land use and development history infomration would be useful,
especially to the extent that it permits evaluation of drainage or
landform modifications. In addition, particularly useful features
include any information that provides data on presence/absence
of irrigation, septic systems, communal water supply, water
wells, or past geologic or geotechnical investigations at the site.

Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide
hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in
survey response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944
(confirmation code). Please refer to that survey response for
additional detail.
Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000.
Use of parcel data generally resembles that employed for
Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation
mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code).
Please refer to that survey response for additional detail.
Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow
stratigraphic characterization project generally resembles use of
parcel data for Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard
zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey
response f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation
code). Please refer to that survey response for additional detail.

It would be great if the data was updated each month.




It would be great if Site address were included along with the
associated Post Office Name, and Zip Code.




monthly updates would be ideal, especially if linked with
existence of associated recorded documents.
Using consistent land use codes is important to determine
actual use. Also, non-abbreviated zoning classification is
important so we can look up use regulations per jurisdiction.

We need current information however the need for quick
updated information is usually not needed due to relatively
uncommon land ownership change.

In addition to the example above, it would be very helpful if
parcel data could be downloaded as a file that can be used in
ARC Map.




n/a


We would like to see the counties Department of health or other
angencies provide us data that includes if the parcel has a well
on it or not.
Annual update necessary.
Ideal for me would be an update in the fall, but that is not
necessary.


as above
  all of the county maps compiled to a standard state wide base
map




Current data is most useful.

Would like to be able to find the most recent images of a county.

Wish that state-wide (all counties) information was available to
every region, that Geo-referencing was easier, that it was easier
finding data on the workbench - specifically State Route layer
and MP layer.
Prompt updates are helpful. However, we rely on legal
descriptions from title reports, not assessor's descriptions for
parcel boundaries.




as stated above. The more accurate the data is that you use.
The more accurate the end product will be. The less time would
be spent on correcting errors
Same as example
Having the ID numbers correspond to state and local register
listings would clear up cofusion. If they are different then this
should be stated clearly and have all possible ID numbers
provided with whatever source the number is assigned by.

Same as example.
It would be helpful to be able to select a stream and have a list
of all landowners (top to bottom or bottom to top) without having
to select each individual parcel.


If there is taxsifter (mapsifter, etc..) county web site info
pertaining to individual parcels; it would be very useful to
hyperlink the URL to the feature parcels in the layer. this
provides instant access to the county's parcel information which
fills a lot of gaps and gives additional useful information on the
parcel. Both Okanogan county and Douglas County currently
provide the taxsifter hyperlink. Otherwise, a field containing the
apprppropriate URL for each parcel can be created from the
parcel number field and joined to the parcels dbf/attributes file.




GIS/GPS info on the parcels would really be beneficial.




not sure




I don't know how you are going to update and maintain this. It's
enough work at the community level with all the development
going on!
It would be helpful to have good addresses for owners and
occupant(s). This way we do not have to spend a lot of time and
money creating the address lists mandated by law during public
comment periods under MTCA.




Owner unique ID




It would be helpful to know how recently a parcel was surveyed,
especially if witness posts are referenced. We once used parcel
data to excavate a witness post that had been on a small lagoon
bank but had since been covered by the egress channel. A
metal detector and some digging exposed the property marker.
We couldn't have done this without the parcel data showing
location of witness posts.
updated monthly or quarterly

It would be helpful if current & former addresses were
associated with the parcel #. Sometimes we get a report
AFTER a building has been demolished & there is no current
address listing in the county parcel viewer web site.
I think I can do our work with the information already proposed.
However, the critical areas info and the wetlands info could be
useful in narrowing searches if already provided with the parcel
data. Otherwise, I can simply query using multiple data sets.

An annual update is sufficient for my data needs. I currently
have over 2.6 million unique statewide parcels that represent 27
counties. At this rate, I am able to update 2 counties each
month.
Steps
I request is from the county in which I work. I also recieve SDE layers from the agency
I work.


We go online to the county assessor's office to obtain the data, including map views.
This is for preliminary (scoping) use. Parcel information is used in publically available
GIS data websites, usually state or county internet sources.

I have only used parcel data occasionally, and usually Ecology has it through a data
agreement with the county. I don't try to do this analysis for areas where we don't
have easy access to parcel data. In addition, the same would go for service area GIS
polygons. If we don't have those, it won't help unless the parcel data shows drinking
water source. This also goes for analyzing areas that are on septic.

I believe we get parcel shapefiles from different counties. I convert these into file
geodatabase feature classes to improve performance. I query the parcel layer in
ArcMap and sometimes use the layer to make other data.
Department of Ecology (Rich Kim) collects the parcel data for our agency every year.
Currently we do use the data in our application because of licensing agreements that
is different with every county we’ve acquired data from. However, ever site manager
has told us parcel numbers/locations is extremely important for their work. This
assists in contacting property owner and talking with the counties about a location
instead of using an address or a latitude/longitude. Additionally, there can be
restrictive covenants from environmental cleanups and it is hard to get a loan from a
bank if a property is not “clean”. Many site mangers/consultants collect parcel data
for their individual projects.

Each county has been contacted and the data obtained is then post processed if
needed in order to standardize the coordinate system.
Our GIS lead contacts the counties of itnerest and request the spatial and tabular
parcel date. The spatial data is re-projected, if necessary, to match the needs of our
project. We then use the spatial and tabular data to analysize and determine correct
place of use of water right.
Download from Ecology Server

this project is a desired project, as such we have not identified a workflow.

All work for this project is in Seattle/Tukwila. King County Parcel viewer is primary
source of this information. Informations needs vary by property/site



We use the search tools to find parcel data using the property address. We then print
out this information.
First of all I have a lot of cobwebs to shake off because this project is done a few
months out of every year; I need to relearn how to work in arcview. I contact the
counties and request spatial and tabular data. I then sort through all the data to
eliminate all the information that I don't need. I also try to convert the date into a
format that I can easily use. I enlist additional help to link the parcels shape files to
certain data attributes i.e those parcels paying FFPA are highlighted with a
transparent green for quick identification. I review the color coded parcel shape files
over aerial photos to correlate land appearence with the forest protection assessment.
Tabular data is used to further refine development,land use, acreage, and
owner/taxpayer info.
We - either water right mappers - or Ecology's data administrator, join any provided,
desired tabular attributes to the parcel shapefiles.

I pull the parcel data from Ecology servers. I then highlight selected parcels based on
visual cues on aerial photos or a table search for owner names.



Log on to the county website and download the available data.
I request our project design office obtain parcel information from the web. They
produce both a table and an overlay (either on an aerial photo or on plan sheets) of
the information. I forward that information to my cultural resources on-call consultant.
They note all structures over 50 years old in the project area. When they do their
fieldwork, they photograph each structure on that list. They gather background
information on each structure - year built, condition, use (original or current), who built
it, and other, related information. They write up that information for each structure.
They then compare the locations of these structures with the project description, and
try to determine whether the project will have an effect on a particular structure. They
prepare an "Inventory Form" for each project. They say whether, in their opinion, the
structure is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. They say whether, in
their opinion, our project will have an effect on the structure. They say whether that
effect will be adverse or not. It is a big savings in time and money when I am able to
provide the consultant with this information and not have them do it themselves.
I use online county records and other sources (private databases, Multiple Listing
Service) to gather information about the subject of my appraisal, then contact the
owner to set up an appointment for an inspection. I also use the same sources to find
similar properties to compare to my subject, and inspect their exteriors from the road.
The parcel data is important to make sure I can find the correct parcel. If anything
comes to my attention in any of these steps, or if I can't get the information I need
from the online records, then I will call or go to the county office and speak to
someone in person. Most of the information I gather from all the sources goes into
my appraisal report, which is shared with the property owner, and becomes a
permanent Department of Transportation record.

First we look at GIS parcel data, then go to county seat if necessary.




contact the county via website to find the gis parcel data.
Currently we get parcel data during an event to use as a layer for response, planning
and mitigation mapping.
Log on to county assessor web site and look for parcel data. If the data is un available
on-line i call the assessors office and discuss with their personel.
I've said it all previously.



I usually look to see if county has a website that I can access parcels numbers.
Otherwise, I contact county office by phone.

I use the .sde layer's attribute table and select polygons of interest to view desired
attributes.
I just look it up for historical information and tracking PLPs.
We look up the street address on the Couty Assessor's Office website, identify the tax
parcel, get the ownership information to send the Early Notice Letter to, print a copy
for the file, enter the tax parcel number in a field in our contaminated sites database.
Looke to see if there were previous owners that may have contributed to the
contamination, for possible future early notice letter transmittal. Look to see if other
tax parcels were also part of a larger, historic contaminated site.

We request parcel data from each county once a year, usually in December. Each
county parcel layer is projected to Wa. State Plane, South, NAD83 HARN, feet which
is our agency standard. Land use codes are identified and revalued into a common
data item. Parcel id number is combined with each county FIPS number into a
standard parcel_id number. Owner name and address is added to each common data
item.
When complete, each separate county parcel layer is combined into a statewide GIS
SDE layer.
Our GIS staff contacts a resource agency to gain access to their data. They then
make it available to all users by placing it out of a regional server. From there I bring
in the layers to analyze project impacts, and construct maps.



I use the county assessors web sit to obtain the information needed as described
previously

We usually start with our internal GIS mapping and county information that has been
downloaded, tax parcel no., current owner, etc. Then we go to the individual counties
to get the most current information on a particular parcel.
Currently we find parcel data from county. Once that is done we order a Title Report
for a title company. Once we recieved the Title Report we layout the parcel info in our
design software. We calculate the total parcel, then we calc our needs for Right of
Way. Then we turn this info over to our Right of Way department.

Rerieve parcel/survey data from county records.
Parcel determination is then computed.
Areas are compared to the county records.
Names are compared to title reports
Restrictions, easements, etc. are noted.

I usually go to the counties internet site and do a search using a legal, property owner
name or parcel number to review the parcel information.
I match a given parcel number with the GIS data developed by the Okanogan County
Assessor's office. Once the parcel number is located and selected, I can access
most other county department data associated with this parcel, such as zoning,
plannning, building, health, etc. The spatial data on existing GIS layers can be
intersected with data from other sources (soils, wells, wetlands, etc.) to complete the
office assessment of any risk that may be posed to humans or the environment on the
subject property or neighboring parcels.

The agency that has the necessary data is contacted and there data is acquired. The
data is placed on a local server and then incorporated into GIS data set.

We would first use the owner information for contact purposes, then use the critical
areas information for environmental risk determinations, then use the maps or aerial
photos for documentation/reporting purposes.


Where spatial (GIS) data are available, we request the entire layer from the county.
We intersect our study points or areas with those layers and then extract the resulting
parcel IDs and associated parcel data from teh layer. When the parcel landowner
information is in a separate table, the resulting parcel IDs are selected from the
tabular data and that information is merged back with the site-parcelID data. If we do
not have current landowner data tables (tax rolls) from the county, we can go to the
county web site and look up information on the parcel individually. However, this is
tedious and not feasible in cases where we may have tens or hundreds of landowners
in a county.

Section-Twnshp-Rng are also used to call up aerial photos from multiple sources in
order to initially evaluate site suitability prior to contacting landowners.




We incorporate county corner data into the Geographic Coordinate Database as the
base for our GIS layers.

use title reports for base-map construction.
Determine present WSDOT ownership. Add adjacent propety parcels to base-map.
Design new highway construction needs.
Identify additional private property needed to build the improvements. Prepare a new
set of Right of Way plan sheets. Contact each property owner to settle on
acquisitions.
Enter township section and range of project area to determine existing survey records
in the project area. Review data, maps, etc. that are available and derive additional
information that will assist in determining ownership. Use county auditor file numbers
to acquire any additional information related to the property
We contact the county and request data or research this informaiton in the records.




We request parcel data by Township from each county in both spatial and tabular
format. That data is overlaid and color coded by parcels that are paying or not paying
FFPA. Townships are reviewed sequentially by quarter section. Using DNR aerial
photo layers, parcels that are non-paying are evaluated to determine if the parcel
should be subject to FFPA. If a determination can not be made from that data and
photo, a 'boots on the ground' audit of the parcel must be made by visiting the site.
Changes are recorded in Excel or Database format and submitted to the Resource
Protection Division at the Dept. of Natural Resources. The RP division submits
changes to the Assessor of each county.
We use parcel data on which to base our recommendations to local jurisdictions
regarding their GMA obligations.

We aren't currently using GIS parcel (or other GIS) data in this project, but would if it
were available.

we project the spatial data along with our BIDN spatial dataset and correct our dataset
as necessary.
We are not yet sure. We would use the data in analyses that are not yet designed.




when we download the various site lists if parcel data is included we could easily
integrate the information into our existing GIS system and SQL databases. The data
is then used by all the Environmental Health Programs. For Example the Drinking
Water program would be able to identify parcels within 1000' of a landfill where
drinking water wells are prohibited.


This depends on the data obtained from the jurisdictions. Sometimes format
conversions, reprojections, joining tables, dissolving on attributes or other random
processes are necessary.




Due to the nature of the job, the information needs to be 1. easily and 2. quickly
obtainable. Clark County parcel information is very helpful and, of for the most part,
easily found. Other counties do not provide parcel information.

Presently use whatever parcel data is available on the Internet; if it's not available on
the Internet, then we must go to the county courthouse to obtain the information,
which is not a very efficient use of our time (we're centrally located in Olympia; when
we're planning work in far away counties, it's impractical for us to go there in person).
Once we have the parcel information, we use it to identify existing data, contact
landowners (if necessary) and identify data gaps that need to be filled.
We obtain all available data on tidelands ownership, whether from WA DNR,
Counties, or State Parks, then compare these with plates from county assessors to
locate physical monuments that can be used to verify the actual boundaries. We then
visit the beach in question to locate the monuments and obtain sub-meter GPS
coordinates. Corrected polygons are then used to verify boundary locations.


We have a shape file for one county (Cowlitz). The GIS staff worked with the file to fit
it to our projection. For two counties, Lewis and Clark we go out to the county GIS
sites. In other counties we have to call the county planning department.



A wide variety of uses
Identify and research potential acquisition targets and/or adjoining ownerships that
may be owned by a party that may manage their land in a fashion that compliments
agency goals.


We used the parcel data that is available on our agency's SQL server. We drew hunt
unit polygons by snapping to the parcel boundary and road and building buffers.

I use the web or don't bother at all. I have no time to contact county officials.

We request/purchase the data from the county. We use the spatial and tabular data
to identify the parcels associated with development. We use the parcel data to look
what development has already occurred to analyze how cougars have responded
over the last 6 years.
Locate the county assessor's website > enter the parcel ID > bring it up on database >
collect metadata > bring up on any interactive map, if offered.


We first obtain the data from the county, then project it to match our GIS project
standard before incorporating it into our GIS project. Once the data are integrated
into our GIS project, we refer to the parcel information intermittently on an as-needed
basis to gain insights on land use, land use boundaries, land use history, ownership or
owner contact information.


Project resembles Thurston County marine shores landslide hazard zonation
mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.

Geologic reference mapping, typically at a scale of 1:24,000. Use of parcel data
generally resembles that employed for Thurston County marine shores landslide
hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.
Use of parcel data within the Lincoln County basalt flow stratigraphic characterization
project generally resembles use of parcel data for Thurston County marine shores
landslide hazard zonation mapping, which I already characterized in survey response
f94c0c7e6e5ef9563868807170717944 (confirmation code). Please refer to that
survey response for additional detail.


Our agency maintains a statewide parcel layer. When the location or boundary of a
parcel is needed for water right processing, it is simply added as a GIS layer.

I receive an ordinance and from the legal description start to draw in the area being
annexed. Sometime the legal description mentions parcels as a descriptor.


After requesting the data we re-project it. Add XY coordinates at the label point of
each parcel and use the resulting coordinates to make a label point file. This label
point file is unioned with a 2000 Census block file. The resulting file is read into SAS
where it is related to other tabular data sets such as building permit files.




We compare the parcel location with our species and habitat database information if
reviewing a development proposal. We conduct analysis of land use patterns and
growth potential to review comprehensive plan amendments sent to us for formal
review by cities and counties.
Our department usually works with the county to get parcel information however I do
not know how often. We project the data over an aerial map with our right of way and
any associated other GIS data for first, conceptual planning, then ordering of title
reports, then contacting property owners, etc.



In Spokane / Stevens County, all needed info is available on line. In Pend Oreille
county, we sit in the assessor's office and review parcel information against hard copy
plat maps and orthos. Lincoln county provides us with a print out of parcel info, and
has pdf files on line of parcel boundaries over orthophotos by section.


We plot the original lode claims, and patented claims on the screen copy and use
these files in reports specific to each mine.
We have the data available to us on our Department of Ecology GIS servers with the
necessary projections already done. All we have to do is load it into our GIS map
documents.



1. Request Title Status Reports through the BIA.
2. Prepare abstract/chain of title for fee lands.
3. Verify status of trust lands.
4. Verify description as spatially correct in relation to adjouners.
5. Prepare status maps in a spatial database, mappable in ARCGis
Contact the County Assessor's office to request parcel layer. If it is available, when it
is received (usually CD-ROM), it is projected. There is no additional processing, as
it's used as a backcover for editing only. Plans are underway for agency
geodatabase, where all parcel layers will be placed.
use county data

We produce a statewide map showing the UGA and cities. We would like to be able
to calculate the changes over time in each of the counties. We would also follow-up
with each county to document the legislative action taken to change the UGA
boundaries.
After requesting the data we re-project it. We sometimes clean up site address
information if it is available and if necessary. Then we use the data for maps.


First, locate available websites for data available for download. Then make contacts
to counties or state agencies to fill in the gaps.
Next assess the data for source, accuracy, currentness.
Next develop a process to transform the data into our format
Next filter the data to extract what we need
Next incorporate the adta into our dataset
Next perform a critical analysis to confirm the accuracy of the data.
We gather parcel information from the Title company, the County's website,
Metroscan, Stellant and DocEdge.




Jim Ruhoff (NCR's "parcel layer" guru) takes care of creating the parcel layers for our
region. The rest of us are just users of the data he provides.




Legal descriptions based on township, ranges and sections are transformed into our
own project datum.

We currently receive the GIS parcel data for Yakima, Kittitas, Frankland, Benton, and
Walla Walla Counties.




I pull a county assessor's map and then go to their web site and pull up each tax
parcel and print the information. I then put it into a spread sheet that allows us to mail
merge all letters and permits that go out.
I am an end user of parcel data and don't get involved with this step.




Same as example.
We start at the mouth of a stream and begin to record every parcel number that the
particular stream runs through along with corresponding landowner name and
address. We then use this information and a local phone book to get phone numbers.
We then contact each individual landowner by phone or in person for access to walk
the stream and conduct our surveys.
Primarily, we obtain the parcel layer from the county - generally avaialble for download
from the county ftp or web site - then rename according to our conventions, assure it
includes the necessary projection definition, and andd any desired metadata - usually
imported from the previous layer obtained and used. We do have one County (Grant
County) that requires membership in a $600/yr data co-op in order to obtain the parcel
layer. Grant county also provides an extensive Excel database containing parcel and
ownership information relevant to each parcel in the layer. We find that we need to
join improvement and owner information conatined in this database to the parcel layer
in order to make it suitable to our needs.

parcels shown on an aerial photo with other relevant data (see other response). First
cut list developed from aerial photo analysis in relation to project mitigation needs.
Spreadsheet developed of relavant parcels with landower information, parcel ID
number, acreage, zoning, improvements, critical areas restrictions, etc.



I utlize maps to obtain parcel ID #'s, then use that to search and obtain desired
information.
The assessor maps are used to lay out our right of way maps. The appraiser is given
a copy of the title commitment which is based on county recorded info. He also has
the assessor info and the contact info from the Treasurer.

The negotiations are with the party of record which may not be the person living on
the property.

All along we all use the aerial photos and those contour maps available.
I contact the countyies of interst and request the spatial and tabular data. I then send
this infomation to our tech people with a letter of what I want to do with it, then they
send me back layers I then use.




1) Identify site location by existing Ecology Facility/Site database query
2) Use GIS spatial analysis to select parcel features within a given search radius
3) Extract Landowner information from the intersected parcel record set.
4) Use record set for site notification bulk mailing.

If it's available on the web, we start with that. At some point we usually have to
request the tabular data (with owner data, addresses, value, etc.) from the county if it
is not included in thie datasets. We register flood maps or use dFIRM data to then
support our objectives of floodplain management or disaster response.
we graphically search the dataset with aerial photos and roads to find the parcels of
interest and then read the corresponding information directly from the table.

It would be wonderful to be able to create a buffer of 1/2 mile around this parcel(s)
and cut the address information from the parcels data set to create an address list.



I contact the county assessors data and get the parcel numbers. I then use the
overlays provided to answer all the questions on the SEPA checklist. I also use the
parcel data to find out a date of sale or the current owner of a property.
We are still in the process of developing the tool so this application has not been
integrated yet.
On an annual basis we contact each County or download their parcel data from their
Web site if available. The parcel data layer is then converted to centroids and
unprojected to the geographic coordinate system. All the counties are then merged
into a single layer for use as a geocoding reference theme.


Currently, we do have the parcel layers for some counties. We have a standard file
that we use that already has the link to the parcel layer, and we just have to check the
checkbox to turn it on.

It would be very helpful to get the parcel layer for the other counties. At least one
county parcel layer, only has information for the unincorporated area; it would be very
very helpful to get it for the entire county, including the cities.

Alternatively, for some counties, we do obtain some parcel information by going to the
respective county web site.


Parcel data were incorporated in a past species data management application
(ArcView 3.x). Spatial and tabular data were acquired from each county where it was
available and not cost-prohibitive. It was projected to match the master database and
formatted to standardize fields across county parcel layers for use with a
navigation/query tool built into the data management application.
Depending on the county we are working in, we either use GIS layers provided by the
county, or one of us goes to the assessor's office to dig through maps and make
copies. We then pore over these maps and our own GIS layers & orthophotos to
make property boundary determinations.



Project the spatial data on map to verify the owner of a road crossing or known barrier
at a road crossing.
We first go to the county's parcel viewer web site and query by street address or
street intersection. After finding site, click on the property report to get taxpayer and
buyer info. Might click on adjacent properties, especially if web site has no address
for first site (building demolished - no current address.)
Currently, we use an "on the ground" approach to identify likely parcels. We then
acquire information from the county's PATS website. We georeference an image
(maybe digitize parcel boundaries) and overlay our data to determine if the parcel is a
good candidate for acquisition.

The county and I agree to a data exchange agreement if the data is not available
online. When I receive the data, I strip out all attributes except for the Parcel
Identification Number (PIN). I execute a SAS program that takes each unique PIN
value for that county and updates the appropriate table in oracle. A second oracle
table (parcel_info) is updated with the appropriate situs address information (address,
city, state, zip). Centrus is used to standardize all of the situs address information for
this county, and assigns the standardized values back into oracle. When the
parcel_info table has been updated, I join it to the original parcel shapefile and
exported to a geodatabase featureclass. The resulting featureclass is then used to
create a locator file for use in geocoding new address information. A third oracle
table (assessor_info) contains all of the extra attributes that are provided by the
county, or can be obtained from the county's website. This table includes the owner's
name and address information, property description, building value, building square
footage, land value, and improvement value.

                                        sampled by the counties. We also use the
                                        database to track which properties have soil
                                        contamination above state standards and to

                                        Long term mitigation has a piece of this. For
                                        example, we are currently working on a project in
                                        Hamilton (Skagit County) from a 2004 flood
                                        event. Ownership has changed since then and
                                        we are dealing with a parcel database captured
                                        in time versus the current one available on the
                                        web. Plats have changed in some instances.
                                        none
                                        I produce a database that is eventually sent to
                                        county assessor for taxation purposes
                                        Our goal is to identify right of way, ownerships,
                                        and then to appraise our additional right of way
                                        and purchase it. This is simply one function of a
                                        highway widening project that includes design
                                        and construction.

                                        We use tribal interested areas for help with
                                        fishing rights, and related natural resource
                                        information in regards to environmental

                                               We conduct fish and habitat (mostly on private
                                               property)on up to five counties per year. It would

                                               We use this data for many different forest

                                                 projects to track how these developments impact
                                                 our state highway system.

                                                 GIS is a tool that allows us to do our jobs more
                                                 quickly, more accurately, and more efficiently
                                                 than pre-GIS.

                                                    consists of 3 to 5 separate mapping projects
                                                    each state fiscal year. They are the same

                                                    state and are co-funded by the US Geologic
                                                    Survey and the Washington State general fund.
                                                    The aim is to generate geologic reference data
                                                    that are freely available to the public and provide
                                                    geologic information at a scale that is sufficiently
                                                    detailed to be useful for local-level analysis.

          2066180 I came from Oregon doing GIS. In Oregon, they funded the
                  development of statewide parcel layer. Money always helps in this
                  process. Very often state agencies have little to offer the counties to
                  make it beneficial for them to spend staff time on a project like this. Our
                  program has items that are important for property owners and should be
                  considered. 1. Restrictive covenants 2. Assisting land owners to find
                  out if their property is clean and they can get a loan 3. Identifying
                  adjacent land owners of a clean

          2066602 Nice to see this survey, hope to see an improvement in data delivery
                  and formatting soon.
          2066671 State parcel digital data is very important to the water right mapping
                  effort. It is possible that water rights will be tied in more closely with
                  parcels and real estate, in the future.

          2066932 I don't know how many appraisers, or how many Real Estate Services
                  people, will take your survey, but there are a couple hundred of us
                  statewide, and we all use parcel information all day, every day, in
                  everything we do. I think it is a great idea to have it all gathered
                  together in one place, and hopefully it will include some of the pieces of
                  information that counties are reluctant to share with the general public.
                  Counties vary greatly in what they will share, and sometimes it gets very
                  difficult to get the job done.

2069345 Some of the northern and outlying counties do not have as
        sophisticated and easily accessible information websites for their
        Assessor's Office as the larger, more highly developed counties. They
        lack the resources to develop and maintain good database systems and
        could benefit from a more centralized function.
2070856
2070879 I hope you are successful creating a statewide parcel database, it would
        save us users a lot of time contacting the agencies individually.

2071012
2071041 I think this is great. Each counties parcel information is very different
        how you get it and how user friendly it is. The more uniform it is the
        better for all users.

2076648 Warning! Be very very and extremely cautious when using county parcel
        data regarding the boundaries and ownership of tidelands. They can be
        immensely inaccurate!
2076691 It is at present only conceptual, and it may become controversial if we
        initiate it. So all my comments are draft.

2077140 I can only speak to the needs of our department and relialize the user
        base you are addressing is quite large and the needs both extensive
        and varied. For our group, there is a huge opportunity to provide
        complete map information via a web site, thus eliminating hours of
        frustration and research on the part of ourselves and our customers.
        Map, location and boundary information is hands-down the most
        frequently asked for information in our office. Consider that on any one
        day, we receive questions about the boundaries of the: hunt GMU's, the
        special permit hunt areas, the east vs west boundary the commercial
        zones on the Columbia River, the fishing boudaries on the tributaries
        and Columbia River, the goose areas for 2A and 2B and the east versus
        west areas as compared to east vs west boudary for elk hunts.

          If ever there was an opportunity to save time and improve customer
          service, this item is at the top of the list.

          Thank you for asking.

2077784 Accuracy of the information is key. There is a considerable amount of
        poor, incorrect, and misleading data available. Generally these
        problems are acknowledged by the provider, but it would be great to
        have one set of reliable data available.

2088619 I am very interested in this project. My work is not regulatory in nature. It
        will be very helpful to have one location to retrieve parcel data for
        purposes of doing timely project reviews in our technical assistance
        capacity, and to provide assistance to landscape planning for local
        governments.
2090640 My comment is that I wish we are not cut off from this data since we use
        this information regularly, not often but essentially needed for each
        project that we design.
2090814
2091217 Any help or encouragement to the rural counties (such as Pend
        Oreille)that can help them update their parcel information into GIS
        would be very helpful...

2092483 Thank you for getting our input!!
2094813 It would be wonderful to have a statewide version of parcel information.
        Right now it has been a problem navigating the discrepencies in
        information available for different counties - there are vast differences.

2114965 I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish. Real Estate is only
        recorded in the county in which it lies. Only in the individual county
        records is the info we need.

2131998 I think this is a really good idea. It would be very useful to obtain the
        parcel data for all the counties (including the cities) throughout the entire
        state. It is important that this information be kept up to date. Out of date
        information, can become useless.
2132063 These data are desperately needed from the less progressive counties
        who have 0 GIS parcel data. It's a real problem for landscape
        conservation planning and communication.
2132075
2132147 We have struggled with some counties not having GIS layers for their
        parcel information. It makes the job A LOT harder when we need to
        decipher this information from various assessors' offices.

2132299 I'm delighted that you are working on this product database. I'll be
        appreciative of all that you can package into the product, but looking to
        see more rather than less.
