Large-scale transmission/substation searches
For large-scale land searches around many lines or substations, the basic parcel search task cannot handle those large search areas. Use this search method instead which can handle the large search.

Create search area polygon with the combo buffer tool

Check out the instructions here on using the combo buffer to create a search area polygon on the map. Input the desired search distance around substations and lines.

Run parcel search on the combo buffer polygon

  • Zoom in so you can clearly see the buffer area in orange and click on any section of the buffer
  • In the combo buffer pop-up window:
    • Click See Actions
    • Select Project Tasks
    • Select Parcel Search
  • In the parcel search modal, enter:
    • Min acres (and max acres if desired)
  • Click Get Count
  • Click Run to pull the parcels into the project map
