MapRight Announces the Release of New Land Use GIS Layer
Dallas, TX — July 14, 2021 — MapRight is delighted to announce the release of our new Land Use Layer. With this new feature, users can determine instantly whether a parcel is being used as a residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, vacant, or exempt property.
“This new layer will be a game-changer for our subscribers,” says Steve Roberson, Co-Founder of MapRight. “How a parcel and its surrounding area can be used is crucial information for anyone dealing with property, and the ability to see this at a glance allows people to make informed decisions in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take.”
So, how does it work? The up-to-date, accurate, and extensive dataset powering the new land use layer is sourced from CoreLogic, a trusted provider of high-quality data. The process starts with a CoreLogic code that collects data from several county land use codes. Then, a general code identifies specific property types and groups them into the categories our users see on MapRight (residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, vacant, or exempt). What happens with the data next is entirely up to you.
The applications of this new release span across industries. Residential realtors scouting properties for their clients, commercial realtors looking to find the best investment, agricultural professionals seeking land for their farm or ranch, and governmental agencies planning cities could all use the new layer to make their jobs a little easier.
The land use layer is now conveniently available in the MapRight web and mobile application. Sign in to your MapRight app to give it a try!
