SCO Project: V2 Statewide Parcel Database


The Statewide Digital Parcel Map Initiative is a multi-year, multi-facet, DOA initiative resulting from Act 20, the state‚Äôs 2013-15 biennial budget bill. The Act directed the DOA to develop a parcel map implementation plan and established a requirement for counties to post certain parcel information online by 2017, including property tax assessment data, zoning information, address data, and acreage. The initiative consists of two key development cycles for the statewide parcel map, V1 and V2. The V1 Parcel Project yielded a statewide parcel database aggregated from existing county and municipal parcel datasets and was made publicly available on July 31st, 2015 via web application and database download. The V2 Parcel Project yielded a statewide parcel database aggregated from existing county and municipal parcel datasets and was made publicly available on August 31st, 2016 via a data download page. A V2 web application is set to be released on September 30th 2016. The V2 dataset includes the geometries of approximately 3.34 Million parcels. Five statewide county administered zoning layers (floodplain, airport, general, shoreland, and farmland zoning), were also aggregated as a part of the V2 project and these layers are available on the data download page. The V2 zoning layers will also be included in the forthcoming V2 parcel web application.

Version 2 Statewide Parcel Database Project ("V2")

Project Leads: State Cartographer's Office, Wisconsin Department of Administration Division of Intergovernmental Relations

Timeframe: October 1, 2015 - December 31, 2016

Project Background: The Version 2 Statewide Parcel Database Project is the second of two development cycles within the Statewide Digital Parcel Map InitiativeIn addition to the publicly available statewide parcel layer, the V2 project has focused on the following items, which are addressed in detail through the V1 interim report:

  • Efficiency and sustainability in updating the parcel layer through data standards, coordination, and automated asynchronous updates.
  • Refinement of the mechanism for data submission to be less onerous, more explicitly documented and to achieve of a better rate of return.
  • Support counties with tools, workflows, and general support related to data contribution.
  • Incorporate feedback by working with counties and the geospatial community to meet the needs of contributors and users of the layer.
  • Aggregate county-level zoning data into a contiguous statewide zoning layer.
  • Evaluate county data submissions in terms of strategic grant benchmarks and the standards written into the V2 call for data.
  • Improve web application and download mechanism for distribution of the parcel data.
