What can I do with

Find and understand parcel information at any level, whether you're buying or developing property, need data for research or professional purposes, or just curious who owns that lot down the street.

Surf parcel information

Parcels are the shapes of individual properties that make up a land grid covering the entire United States (and most of the world). Parcels typically have characteristics like ownership, zoning, taxes, sale prices, and more. You can use this site to see who owns the world around you and how land is divided up into different shapes.

We currently show 143 million parcel shapes covering where 95% of Americans live. See a map of coverage and sources here.

Create parcel maps

Make beautiful parcel projects — no GIS experience required — and gain insights, fast. The Land Grid lets you color code, add, and filter data with the click of a button.

Filtering helps you dive deep into the data and uncover patterns by seeing properties with different combinations of characteristics, like a certain kind of zoning and a certain size.

Survey property

Want to go out and photograph and document property conditions, or reach and interview residents? Our survey editor makes it easy to write your own multiple choice or open-ended survey questions, then use the Loveland Survey App (available for iOS and Android) to visit properties in the field, or add information to your map right from your computer with Desktop Surveying.

Data collected in the field hits your Loveland account LIVE — no need for digitizing, downloading, or uploading results.

Surveys big and small can be done by individuals, small groups, or teams of dozens, hundreds, or even thousands simultaneously.

Import and export data

We believe that data should never be stuck in silos. Easily import any spreadsheet (CSV or Excel file) with an address column or a parcel ID or latitude-longitude column and it will neatly attach to the Land Grid's base parcel data. All you have to do is drag-and-drop a file or copy-and-paste a link. (If you don’t have spreadsheets of data, don’t forget your local open data portal might!)

You can export the data you've added as a spreadsheet, shapefile, or KML, and it will come out combining your data with the base property information. This is a very powerful tool for doing something valuable that would otherwise typically make you want to pull your hair out.

Pro accounts can also export spreadsheets of the base property information on the site at up to 50,000 rows at a time. If you need to export larger spreadsheets of data, or if you want to download the parcel shapes, see our data licensing page for unlimited nationwide spreadsheet exporting and parcel licensing.

Collaborate and share

Your Loveland account and the data you put in The Land Grid are completely private and secure. You have full control over who can access the maps and data you create. Share maps and data with your team members and colleagues.

If you want to publish maps, you can do that too: Loveland maps can be published on a “read only” basis, and you can embed them in webpages.

Explore nationwide map layers & US Census data

Pro accounts now have access to a growing number of nationwide map layers to go along with the parcel data. You can now select not only street and aerial imagery, but maps including things like topography, flood and fire risk, land use, and more.

Access US Census data, including population, demographics, income, health, education, and other information at the tract, block, city, county, state, and national levels with your Pro account.

Who uses our tools?

We’ve designed The Land Grid so that communities and customers of all sizes, from individuals to local neighborhood groups to city- and statewide surveying efforts, can gather information, make maps, and understand the land around them. Here are a few examples out of thousands:

Parcel Data Licensing

WoodsCamp is an example of an independent app and service that licenses our nationwide parcel data to analyze and serve parcels to its customers: private owners of forested land who want to better understand what they have and how it can be used and preserved. Visitors to the WoodsCamp site can easily find their parcel of property, and the WoodsCamp app calculates the tree coverage on the parcel to make recommendations about how it can be managed.

See our parcel licensing page to add nationwide parcel data to your own app.

The Ohio 3Cs Mapping Project

With support from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Loveland partnered with the Western Reserve Land Conservancy to update our platform, gather data, provide our technology to government, nonprofit, and community groups, and organize property surveys across Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus, Ohio. The projects conducted took various forms, from a citywide survey of Cleveland, to a vacant housing survey of Cincinnati, to neighborhood surveys in Columbus, with various groups and individuals in each city continuing to use the tools for projects big and small.

In 2014, Detroit knew it had a blight problem - but nobody knew exactly how many structures were vacant. Because good data is crucial to good decision-making, Loveland Technologies teamed up with Data Driven Detroit and the Blight Elimination Task Force led by Dan Gilbert to conduct an ambitious survey: photograph and evaluate every single property within Detroit's 139 square miles. 200 Detroiters used Loveland’s parcel mapping technology and property surveying app to get the job done. Data from this unprecedented effort led to hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding allocated to blight removal and demolitions, as well as providing valuable information to City Hall, developers, and neighborhood groups about the state of their city.

Tax Foreclosure Prevention

History will marvel that Detroit’s most intense period of displacement and property damage happened in the 21st century through a misguided tax foreclosure and auction system that traded money in the short-term for long-lasting damage to people and property. Loveland cut against the political grain to show what is happening and how it can be changed through better outreach and better policy. Local government and organizations use data from The Land Grid and the mobile app to visit people facing foreclosure, understand their situation, connect them to the resources they need, and advocate for change.

Flint Property Portal

The Genesee County Land Bank and City of Flint needed a custom website where they could host continuously-updated data as well as provide residents a platform where they could easily make maps, look up properties and showcase property surveys as they come in, in real time. Loveland worked with these valuable partners to build a custom site to meet their needs.

Dan Trapp, St. Augustine/St. Monica Parish:

“I'm the pastor of a Catholic parish on the east side of Detroit... I was able to find the initial information about a vacant house across from our church. We bought it, fixed it up and sold it. Also, we bought 7 vacant lots, cleared them of debris, cut the grass and put in 240 grape vines this past spring. After a hundred or so years of having houses on it, the land is now back to farmland, the neighborhood is beautified, it's giving some employment and should produce a nice Cabernet Franc.”

Political and Advocacy Outreach

When advocates for Michigan’s Proposal 2 needed to reach Michiganders all across the state in an effort to change the political gerrymandering laws, they contacted Loveland for a canvassing solution. Approximately 1,000 canvassers used the Loveland Survey App to knock on more than 84,000 doors in a statewide campaign to inform and understand voters. The proposal passed.
