Buildings Footprints & Counts on Landgrid.com
This January, we have a bunch of updates for you!
So let’s jump right in!
1. Buildings count per parcel & Buildings Footprints:
Last year, we partnered with Gateway Spatial LLC - a fellow mapping company that has successfully collected around 104 million buildings footprints so far & counting, directly from counties, just like how we obtain our parcel data. So it made perfect sense for us to partner together on our solutions.
Using their data, the LOVELAND team has derived & added the following columns to our data:
- Building counts per parcel.
- Building sq footage per parcel (In progress, will be fully added by end of this week).
- Map Layer - We’ve also rendered Gateway Spatial’s buildings footprints as a map layer to the Landgrid mapping platform. This premium layer and the above 2 derived attributes are available only to Landgrid Pro & Enterprise customers.
Below is a screenshot of map layer against our parcel data on landgrid.com!
Imagine being able to filter number of buildings per parcel on the Landgrid platform!!
This is a big leap for us parcel data folks. With this data, we can now identify & display how much of a parcel is covered by a building and how many buildings are there on a parcel.
The buildings data attributes, much like the USPS data we added last year are considered premium fields in our parcel dataset. If you are interested in licensing this data from us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
However, please note that all data is not perfect. We have matched 104 million footprints from Gateway Spatial to our 142 million parcels. As a result, we have a ~69% match rate with this dataset. Please read our FAQ’s to understand the specifics of this data & its accuracy (& lack thereof in certain places) - https://support.landgrid.com/articles/parcel-data-faq/
Please let us know when you find discrepancies in this data, for instance, some buildings may have been demolished since this data was recorded. So help us ground truth it by emailing us at email@example.com.
