Proposed Parcel Data Transfer Standard for Minnesota, v. 3.2 - Public Review

The proposed parcel data transfer standard establishes a common set of attributes and field definitions to encourage sharing and aggregation of geospatial parcel (cadastral) data. The standard is for data transfer only; it does not define how data producers should capture or store their parcel data.

  • The standard is modeled on the MetroGIS Regional Parcel Dataset specifications
  • All other organizations, including county government, would be encouraged, but not required, to use the standard when transferring data

The standard was drafted by the Parcels and Land Records Committee, with significant input from its county members and other interested organizations.

Next Steps

The Parcels and Land Records Committee and the Standards Committee will carefully review all comments received from January 8 - February 9, 2018. Comments received will be documented and published publicly and will be used to inform any additional revisions of the Parcel Data Transfer Standard prior to its advance to the Minnesota Geospatial Advisory Council for the council's consideration of its approval as a Minnesota State Geospatial Standard.
