Abstract: Wyandotte County, Kansas tax map parcel polygon feature dataset in ESRI GIS format in Kansas North State Plane NAD83 coordinates, units feet, suitable for use at 1:1200 map scale or smaller. A seamless ownership parcel layer covering entirety of Wyandotte County, including the cities of Kansas City Kansas, Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, and that portion of City of Lake Quivira in Wyandotte Co. Attributes include the county parcel number (PARCEL and PARCEL_NBR) and Acres (ACRE). Multifarious property and ownership information in separate county taxroll and CAMA databases can be related to the county parcel number for more complete attribution. Line features represent ownership boundaries per source materials (deed, plat, legal description, etc.) and are approximations of true ownership lines. Not included in this dataset are plat lot and block # designations, subdivision boundaries across ROW, ROW polys, easements, multi-story condominium property boundaries, or lot dimensions.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Other citation details:
Original source of parcel geometry is 1"=100' mylar base map manuscripts. Parcel lines were drafted in ink based on source documents such as deed, plat, survey, and legal description. The basemapping began in the 1970's, and was also co-maintained in a GIS digital environment by the early 1980's.

Description:
Abstract:
Wyandotte County, Kansas tax map parcel polygon feature dataset in ESRI GIS format in Kansas North State Plane NAD83 coordinates, units feet, suitable for use at 1:1200 map scale or smaller.

A seamless ownership parcel layer covering entirety of Wyandotte County, including the cities of Kansas City Kansas, Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, and that portion of City of Lake Quivira in Wyandotte Co.

Attributes include the county parcel number (PARCEL and PARCEL_NBR) and Acres (ACRE). Multifarious property and ownership information in separate county taxroll and CAMA databases can be related to the county parcel number for more complete attribution.

Line features represent ownership boundaries per source materials (deed, plat, legal description, etc.) and are approximations of true ownership lines. Not included in this dataset are plat lot and block # designations, subdivision boundaries across ROW, ROW polys, easements, multi-story condominium property boundaries, or lot dimensions.

Purpose:
Supports the Unified Government's Enterprise GIS (E-GIS) system as base cadastral layer. It is used to query and display spatial ownership parcels for general reference. It is used by the County Appraiser to aid in property tax assessment duties. This dataset is not a substitute for land ownership and interest descriptions found in individual property deeds. This GIS dataset is NOT survey accurate and should not be used for determining actual legal land boundaries on the ground.

Supplemental information:
Entire county parcel count is over 70,000 not including parcels that are not currently being mapped.

Parcel maintenance is continuous, with updates published to shapefile generally once or twice a month.

Unified Government's GeoSpatial Services (GSS) is also custodian/distributor of many other digital spatial reference layer datasets covering Wyandotte County, Kansas.

Data Quality Information:


Attribute accuracy:
Attribute accuracy report:
Parcel number (PARCEL and PARCEL_NBR) attribution is considered accurate and complete based on internal reviews, checks, update procedures, and frequent use of dataset. Rare misassignments of parcel numbers through typos, edit errors, or mapping mistakes may occur, they are usually corrected through internal QA such as review checks against taxroll and CAMA databases.

Acres field is automatically calculated using GIS area (square feet) as basis. GIS dataset acres may not always accurately reflect deeded acreage, and may be subject to land research interpretation and mapping errors.

Logical consistency report:
Topologically correct polygon geometry. Each parcel has unique parcel number (PARCEL, PARCEL_NBR), with no duplication.

Completeness report:
Complete, seamless coverage of entire county

Positional accuracy:
Horizontal positional accuracy:
Horizontal positional accuracy report:
No numeric positional accuracy (+/- units) claim is given for this dataset.

Parcel boundaries are considered close approximations of actual ownership lines, and should conform closely to occupation lines such as fences and walls. However, parcels were drawn from deed, plat, survey, etc. without a geodetic control network as a framework. So line coordinates as drawn and depicted may vary from survey-accurate depictions. Different planimetric/topographic base map editions over many years and with different survey control methodologies have introduced some alignment issues with some map features such as structures with respect to parcel lines (there are cases where parcel lines incorrectly cut across building footprints-- as visible on newer digital maps or orthophotography).

Newer plats and parcel changes made with survey-accurate information are placed into existing parcel configuration on a 'best-fit' basis-- with newer survey-reliant data generally given precendence for placement considerations.

Also, some parcels may have been drawn incorrectly in the first place through mistakes in research or in mapping.

In summary, this parcel dataset is as accurate as is possible with above limitations in mind. It is not survey accurate but is useful for reference.

Land records from County Clerk, Register of Deeds, and other offices are processed in GeoSpatial Services Division into parcel mapping records with boundary change instructions noted.

Updates to mylar base maps and GIS tax parcel dataset follow accordingly, in coordination with respective updates to taxroll and CAMA computer databases.

Process step:
Process description:
Mylar planimetric/topographic tax parcel maps are updated continually.

Land records research determines how parcel changes are drawn. Draftsman lays out boundaries and parcel number labels in ink accordingly.
