Open Standards for Parcel Data? Yes Please...
The Carbon Project's FGDC CAP grant report on the development of an Implementation Model for sharing Parcel data has been completed. The review document is available at the FGDC Cadastral Subcommittee site.
The draft model conforms to the FGDC Cadastral Data Standard and is implemented as simple Geography Markup Language (GML). It also includes instructions for accessing Parcel GML with WFS, ArcGIS, Gaia and mobile apps.
The intent of Parcel GML is to help Parcel data sharing among local, state, tribal, federal and private organizations - and we welcome your feedback!
