The active tax parcel boundaries for all of Tompkins County for a given year plus selected real property information added from Tompkins County RPS. The boundaries represent the one-to-one match with the parcel boundaries shown on the final paper maps for a given year.
The parcel boundaries represent legal descriptions of property ownership, as recorded in various public documents in the Tompkins County Clerk's Office. This is the New-York-State-mandated database of property ownership and information in Tompkins County. This database is related to a subset of the RPS database extract using the SWISPRINTK field.
Properties that are tracked by an account number (utilities, railroads, etc.) may be shown as several separate tax parcel boundaries, with different tax map print keys, even though they are tracked in the Real Property Services (RPS) database under the same account number and treated as one single parcel. The parcel region will show these account-number properties as one tax parcel boundary. This data set is derived from the "region_parcel" featureclass currently being maintained in ArcSDE. Please note that as of July 2008, the tax parcel boundaries have not been edge-matched across municipal boundaries since in most cases these require new surveys and legal descriptions.
