Description:

Abstract:
This data set contains point features and attributes for real property tax parcels by county. These points represent the visual center of the parcel on a tax map. The points and associated attributes were extracted from local government assessment rolls.

Purpose:
The data is developed by local governments for assessing real property tax parcels. The points represent a spatial address that can be used for mapping and analysis. Although the data is developed for the purpose of real property tax administration, the ability to map parcel centroids along with the associated assessment information creates the opportunity to use the data for many otherpurposes

Supplemental_Information:
Procedures Used: Municipalities are required by statute (Article 15) of the Real Property Tax Laws to submit Assessment Roll files after their final roll date each year. Data is submitted in various formats using a variety of media from each municipality to the Office of Real Property Services (ORPS). The data is reformatted into a standard structure, and stored on the agency's Sybase database server for use in establishing equalization rates. The Land Information System (LIS) unit extracts selected fields from the Assessment Roll database on county basis. The extracted data is then loaded into an INFO (Arc/Info database) file using a pre-defined template. A custom INFO program is employed to check, and if necessary correct, the east and north coordinates. An ARC/INFO macro language (AML) program is then used to "generate" and "build" a point coverage. The macro also adds the attribute information using the "joinitem " command, and uses the ARC/INFO "project" command to convert the coverage from the State Plane (feet) coordinate system to the UTM (meters) coordinate system. Revisions: New datasets and coverages are generated on a yearly basis. Reviews Applied to Data: A spatial check of the east and north coordinates is the only review processed by ORPS staff. Related Spatial and Tabular Data Sets: References Cited: "RPS" means Real Property System software designed and distributed by ORPS for assessment administration. Notes: New York State Office of Real Property Services is not responsible for the completeness, integrity> or accuracy of the data sets.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The maps from which the points are derived have a horizontal positional accuracy of 10 feet. The points represent the visual center of the parcel and therefore can occur anywhere inside the polygon that makes up the parcel. The accuracy, therefore, can not be guaranteed.

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report: None.
