Automatically pull in parcels close to an area of interest based on their proximity and size. See property boundaries and landowner/parcel ownership and metadata (read more about our parcel data and parcel usage).
This is often the first place to start when beginning a greenfield land search.
On a project, go to the Parcels tab (below project map)
See Actions button
Project Tasks >
Input search area distance*
How far from primary substation(s) OR line(s) do you want to search for parcels; search will look for parcels that are inside of or that overlap that search area.
Input minimum acreage* (per parcel)
This setting helps you target parcels that are large-enough for consideration. Note: this is on a per parcel basis (not site area minimum)
If you're trying to get to a total site acreage of 500 acres, but are willing to look at 100 acre parcels, then enter '100' as the minimum.
Get Count in the parcel search modal
The modal will display how many parcels meet the search criteria
Review the 'Get Count' results
If count seems about right, proceed to the next step. If parcel count is too high (or too low), adjust the search area and/or minimum acres values and re-do the 'Get Count' step.
You can click 'Get Count' as many times as desired. Parcels are not actually pulled in OR counted towards the annual parcel usage allotment until the next step.
Once the 'Get Count' parcel number has been calculated and reviewed, pull parcels into the project:
Run in the parcel search modal
The parcels will load in and be visible in two places on the project:
(1) Project map: Parcel/property boundaries are displayed as blue polygons (with blue parcel marker/dot)
(2) Parcels tab: Parcels will be listed in the Parcels tab below the project map.
