“Boundary Solutions, Inc.'s, National ParcelMap Data Portal, or NPDP, is a turnkey online geoinformation resource. We are pleased to obtain this patent award in recognition of the seminal work BSI has performed in this field” explained the company's CEO and founder, Dennis H. Klein.
Under this patent, an entered street address, ZIP Code and/or Assessor Parcel ID Number returns a display of the pertinent parcel boundary feature highlighted to differentiate if from the surrounding parcel boundaries. A jurisdiction look up table is referenced to determine which jurisdiction(s) are accessed to retrieve and display the pertinent polygons. Among other features, spatial data is linked to non-graphic property tax records to act as a spatial database model. A metadata profile describing the pertinent data is displayed as needed. Queries can be applied to all parcels on the screen to highlight ones with matching spatial and/or attribute characteristics.
