Land parcels are boundaries that have associated information such as property owner, land use, value, and location attributes. This property information is recorded and maintained at the county level in Texas. Land parcels are used by public entities to make informed decisions on community planning, development, or emergency preparation and response. In 2016, research for the Texas Geographic Information Officer’s report revealed the single greatest need for state agency business was a statewide database of land parcel boundaries updated on an annual basis.
In 2017, a statewide study was conducted to identify the availability of land parcel boundaries in a geographic information system (GIS) or other digital format. The study revealed, of the 253 county appraisal districts in Texas, a total of 212 counties reported the existence of digital parcel boundaries in their programs. Additionally, the report discovered there is no requirement for land parcel boundary development and maintenance in a GIS or other digital format.
At present, the TNRIS StratMap team is leading the effort to produce a statewide land parcel database with help and endorsement from a number of state agencies. Updates and accomplishments of this enormous project will be posted to this page as things progress.
