Parcel Data Transfer Standard for Minnesota

The Parcel Data Transfer Standard establishes a common set of attributes and field definitions to encourage sharing and aggregation of geospatial parcel (cadastral) data. The standard is primarily intended for data transfer; it does not define how data producers should capture or store their parcel data.

The current standard was drafted by the Parcels and Land Records Committee with significant input from its county members and other interested organizations.

The Standards Committee conducted two periods of public review and then advanced the proposed standard to the Minnesota Geospatial Advisory Council which approved the standard (version 1.0) at its March 28, 2018 meeting.

Invitation for Public Review of Proposed Revisions to the Standard (v. 1.1)

Since its adoption in March 2018, as the Parcel Data Transfer Standard has begun to be used by the statewide geospatial professional community, numerous stakeholders have suggested refinements and improvements to the standard. The Standards Committee has revised the standard based on these comments and is putting these revisions out for a 45-day public review period. With any potential modification to an adopted standard, the Standards Committee and the Geospatial Advisory Council wish to engage with the entire stakeholder community in a transparent and inclusive fashion. Both the Standards Committee and GAC strongly encourage comments and feedback on the proposed changes.

This review period was from Monday, November 26, 2018 through Friday, January 11, 2019

Note:  Domain tables for all standards have been centralized into one spreadsheet document (click on link to "Domains").

All comments will be reviewed by the Standards Committee at its January 2019 meeting.
