FASS Parcel Boundaries

Parcel boundaries.

A parcel is a land record that defines the boundary of a piece of land. First American Spatial Solutions ("FASS") has gathered and assembled over 118 million parcel boundaries from over 4,100 government agencies, and makes these boundaries available in the appropriately named FASS Parcel Boundaries product.

Use parcel boundaries for:
  • Mapping real estate
  • Extremely accurate geocoding
  • Visualizing leased properties
  • Displaying land use
  • Public safety applications
  • Detailed Business Intelligence mapping

FASS Parcel Boundaries details:

Parcel boundaries are the basic administrative unit of local government in regards to land and property. Managing ownership and tax records are the primary reason local governments generate these files.

Wide area coverage of parcel data allows for much more accurate geocoding. Parcels are also a good mechanism for disseminating public data. Mapping at the parcel level offers more accurate maps which do a better job of portraying land-based geography.

Because the data are provided by FASS, a commercial vendor, the "which format" issue goes away; Tele Mart provides the data in whatever format you need. As a result, the database has the advantage of greater interoperability among organizations, both government and business.

FASS Parcel Boundaries was first released October 2006 and has over 118 million parcels - the most comprehensive packaged parcel database available today, representing over 60% of the US population.

The parcel data are acquired from at least 4,100 tax mapping authorities, each with disparate format, projection, data model, and highly varied usage/distribution policies. FASS has built a standard format, structure and projection into which the company has standardized the data. Parcels are checked for accuracy, street alignment, projection, and more.

FASS has a team dedicated to enhancing the Parcel Boundaries product. The team is adding parcel coverage each month and is surveying the market to determine the priority for adding attributes.
