GIS (Geographical Information Systems)

ParcelQuest recognizes the value in maintaining its own GIS maps. ParcelQuest GIS maps are drafted and updated by our own staff of cadastral mapping experts who possess decades of experience in parcel boundary maintenance. Combining our expertise in data standardization and cadastral mapping, ParcelQuest's maps and data are updated more frequently and are more accurate than any other available source. This whitepaper details the six (6) key benefits of the ParcelQuest GIS product: 1) The addition of missing parcels, 2) APN corrections, 3) Alignment improvement, 4) The addition of condominiums, timeshares and air space parcels, 5) Edge-matching, and 6) Miscellaneous layer standardization.
