  • Property essentials: FIPS, census block and address details
  • Building basics: Type and usage
  • Building location: How it’s placed and centered on its lot
  • Elevation: Lowest, highest and centroid

FIPS, APN, Census Block ID and address ID enable GeoEnrichment with property attributes, U.S. Census Bureau data and address genealogy. Seamless integration with key tools makes it easy to layer, visualize, analyze and share.
