The latest post from NYS GIS Association member Sam Wear, “Tax Parcel Data Sharing in New York State”, posted on 23 March, is available on his website eSpatially New York.

“Half of New York’s Counties now make parcel data available for free through Open Data efforts though barriers in specific governments still need to be overcome before statewide data is available”

Much progress has been made in making tax parcel data freely available and open across In that nearly half of New York’s many counties have been selling the data for many the Empire State over the past 10-15 years. But much work still needs to be done by individuals and organizations.  As well numerous institutional changes before the GIS user community recognizes full access to tax parcel datasets across the entire New York State footprint.
