Announcing - Nationwide Standardized Land-Use Codes

By Sahana Murthy on February 22, 2021 · Announcements

Lovelanders!


This February, we have a big update for you!

Announcing the launch of our nationwide standardized land-use codes as a premium feature in our product suite!

That’s right, in addition to high quality, standardized nationwide parcel data, we have put together highly contextual, standardized nationwide land use codes as part of our premium data package. These codes will help you get the nuanced context on land use for your projects. 

From community and urban planning, to site selection, to understanding what activity is allowed on a particular piece of land, and to commercial real estate, the use cases are endless & Landgrid’s standardized use codes have you covered. 

Data driven decisions and faster time to market for your projects!

Email us if you are interested in getting these codes as part of your data.




What do we mean by land-use codes, you ask???

We offer standardized land use information for 5 dimensions:
  1. Activity - describes the actual activity & use of the property.
  2.  Function - describes the broader economic or social use of the parcel.
  3. Structure - describes the type of structure & building on the parcel. 
  4. Site - describes the physical characteristics of a site or land. 
  5. Ownership - mainly describes if it's publicly or privately owned land. 
You can find the descriptions of each one of our land use codes across all 5 dimensions here.
 

Why is this valuable?

There isn’t any one universal format for standardized land use codes. Because this data varies by the county, Landgrid’s nationwide standardized classification becomes a one stop-solution that makes it easy for anyone who works with our parcel data to make use of nuanced contextual land use information. 

As a result, our parcel data is your one turn-key solution for all of your contextual property data needs. 

How to get it?

All of our new customers can get our standardized land use code attributes as part of our premium data package along with our other premium derivative fields.

Premium fields include:

We have spent over a year working on improving our process to populate land use codes into our dataset.

Our current data & platform customers - you may have noticed the LBCS (Land based classification system) related columns in your dataset. As we populated this data, we made them available to our existing standard data customers, along with our Landgrid Pro, Team & Enterprise customers. 

We've made sure that you will continue to get the LBCS columns as part of your current accounts & subscriptions with us and as long as you are a customer with us. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
All new data customers will be able to get the land use codes as part of our premium offering.

That was our February update. Please email us at parcels@landgrid.com if you are interested in our land use codes and we will get you a sample today.
Until next time, stay safe & warm.


Happy Mapping!
