Partnership to provide nationwide parcel data through ThinkData Works’ Data Marketplace
TORONTO, ON - Aug 28, 2019 — ThinkData Works, Inc. (ThinkData) has brokered a data partnership with Loveland Technologies (Landgrid.com) to make detailed information on over 144 million parcels available through the Namara Data Marketplace, enabling high-accuracy analysis and visualizations.
Loveland Technologies is based in Detroit, Michigan, and works with governments, developers, neighbourhood groups and individuals to present property information in clear, actionable ways. By connecting to parcel data from thousands of counties across the United States and standardizing the output to a common feed, Loveland has developed a best-in-class parcel database that covers over 95% of the US population and 3200 counties.
- 144 million parcels and counting of parcel shapes, ownership & assessments
- USPS residential & vacancy data
- 2661 active counties
- 2,163 counties with ownership data
- 2,408 counties with address data
Loveland works with professionals in multiple industries and areas of focus, including GIS and geocoding, energy and infrastructure, real estate and site selection, conservation and agriculture, insurance and disaster relief, machine learning and modelling, and education and policy. Accessing quality data about the underlying land grid of parcel shapes, ownership, and assessments is fundamental to all businesses and research projects that rely on property and spatial information.
“Everything that isn’t a street or a sidewalk exists on a parcel of land with a legal shape, address or ID, owner, and other fundamental property characteristics. Landgrid.com brings truly comprehensive nationwide land parcel data to a wider audience by being friendlier and more affordable than people are used to finding, without sacrificing quality and innovation,” says Loveland Technologies CEO Jerry Paffendorf. “Our channel partnership with ThinkData Works will help us reach even more people and companies who want to put this foundational dataset to work for their customers and communities.”
Lewis Wynne-Jones, Head of Data Acquisition for ThinkData, says, “ThinkData’s background in open data means we’ve seen a lot of parcel data from counties across the US. We knew at the time that there was a massive opportunity for someone to gather this data together and turn it into an actionable product. The product that Loveland has put together makes this data easily accessible for the first time.”
