The Parcel layer is an add on feature for Surety® and Surety® Pro accounts that displays Parcel boundaries and potentially a multitude of different data such as Parcel ID, Owner Name, and more. A separate purchase is required in order for it to become available within a mapping account.

Parcel layers

Once purchased, the Parcel layer is able to be turned on in the layers panel. It will list which states you have available in parenthesis in the layer name.

Image

Parcel boundaries will appear as orange borders on the map. 

Image

The Parcel Labels layer goes hand-in-hand with the Parcel layer. You can toggle this layer in order to show or hide labels for the parcel. The style and label content can also be controlled by this layer. 

Image

The Parcel Labels layer has a unique layer properties option set. Click on the Parcel Labels link to access these options.

The general tab offers some control over when the labels appear on the map. The default setting is they will appear between a 0 - 2 mile map scale.

Image

The labels tab allows modification to the look of the labels on the map itself. See Form Layer Properties for more on these features.

Parcel Search (Surety® Pro only)

Surety® Pro accounts can use the Parcel search to find parcel information by Parcel ID or First and Last Name

Image

Fill in the State and County and click on the Parcel Latest update to view when the last time the county records were updated.

Image

Enter the State and County as well as a Parcel ID or First Name(optional) and Last Name(required when searching by name) and click Locate.

Image

The name search can be tweaked depending on what is typed in. If searching for all results with a particular last name, simply type in a last name and leave the first name blank. If you are wanting to narrow to a certain first initial, type the first letter of the first name into the First Name box. If you want to widen your search results, type an asterisk at the end of a series of letters in the last name in order to search for all results containing that string of letters. e.g. "John*" will return results for Johnson, Johnston, etc. Click the Question Mark (?) at the top of the search page to get a breakdown of these search options. 

Image

The Results of the search will be listed below.  There are a variety of actions that can be done with the results.

Image

Click on any of the records to bring up the info for that particular record.

Image

Either use the magnifying glass button to zoom to a single record boundary or check one or more records and click Zoom to results to locate and highlight the parcels on the map.

Image

Quickly save the selected records to the Parcel Info layer(see below) by using the Save Selected link.

Image

Parcel Info & Parcel Report

To view the information assigned to the Parcel boundary, we can use either the Parcel Info form or the Parcel Report

Select 1 parcel boundary with the select tool then choose either Parcel Info or Parcel Report in the right panel.
Note: Surety Pro accounts must have a client selected for these options to appear.

Image

Parcel Info

Parcel Info is used as a quick info look-up. It will display all of the available data in a simple pop-up.
Amount of available data depends on the completeness of the county's digital records in which the boundary resides.

Image

Surety Pro accounts can Save the Parcel boundary for easy recall by clicking on the Save button on the bottom of the Parcel info form.

Image

This will add this information to the Parcel Info Layer which can be turned on and off of the map using the checkbox in the layers panel.

Image

It also enables the records to be styled using the Form Layer Properties or used from within the Form Manager to create Paradigms or Overview Maps using the Dossier Studio.

Parcel Report

The Parcel Report is a printable Form that contains a large map and any available parcel information for the selected boundary.

Once you have selected a parcel boundary, click the Parcel Report in the list of Forms and Reports.


Image

The report will load for you to modify, save, and Print.

Image

Surety Pro accounts are able to save this as a record similar to other forms within Surety Pro.

Image

The saved layer will be displayed as Parcel Report

Image

Please contact AgriData support directly at  or at 701-746-8580 with questions.


Exporting Parcel Boundaries

When exporting a parcel boundary as a SHP, the files exported will be be different than when exporting a non-parcel boundary.

The files that are produced contain all the attributes of the parcel and the filenames have "parcel_" added to it.

Select a parcel boundary and click Export

Image

Select SHP and then export

Image

The attributes included within the shapefile are the same as what you would find when generating the Parcel Info report.
