Configure Parcel Value Analysis

In this topic, you will learn how to configure the Parcel Value Analysis solution to meet specific needs in your organization.

Load data 

Parcel Value Analysis can be used to share parcel, property sales, floodplain and tax distribution information. In some cases, you may have this information in ArcGIS or another business system already.

Review the layers provided with the solution and determine what source data you would like to load. Then, load your existing data into the layers provided with the ArcGIS Solution before sharing the maps or applications.

Once you have determined what source data must be loaded, complete one, or more, of the data loading workflows below.

Load data from a shapefile or file geodatabase 

Data for TaxParcels, SiteAddresses, SchoolDistricts, and TaxParcelSales can be loaded from a shapefile or file geodatabase by following the steps below:

  1. Create a .zip file of your shapefile or file geodatabase.
  2. In your ArcGIS organization, browse to the feature layer you wish to populate.
  3. On the feature layer item details page, Click Update Data and select Append Data to Layer.
  4. Under Filename, click Choose File.
  5. Navigate to your .zip file and click Open.
  6. Under Contents, select Shapefile or File Geodatabase.
  7. Click Upload and Continue.

Tip:

To make additional updates to a hosted feature layer, see Append data to layers.

Load tax distribution information

To configure the Tax Distribution table in the TaxParcels layer in ArcGIS, you may use the sample .csv file included with the solution (TaxDistribution.csv).

To load tax distribution from a spreadsheet, complete the steps below:

  1. Sign in to your ArcGIS organization and browse to the TaxDistribution item.
  2. On the item details page, click Download.
  3. Once downloaded, open the TaxDistribution.csv and populate Parcel ID, Total Tax and Tax District distribution totals (in dollars).
    Note:

    After these tax values are populated you can compute the percent of total tax dollars for each Tax District and populate its corresponding Tax District % attribute. For example, (TXDIST1/TOTTX)*100 = TXDIST1PER or ($1500/$5000)*100 = 30%.

  4. Alternatively, you can use ArcGIS Pro to populate these values based on their spatial relationship with tax districts.
  5. Once TaxDistribution.csv is populated with all the necessary data.
  6. In your ArcGIS organization, browse to the TaxParcels feature layer.
  7. On the feature layer item details page, Click Update Data and select Append Data to Layer.
  8. Under Filename, click Choose File.
  9. Navigate to your .csv file and click Open.
  10. Click Upload and Continue.
  11. From Choose the layer that you wish to append data into, select the Tax Distribution table to load into.
  12. Uncheck Update existing features.
  13. Click Show field matching to map the fields.
  14. Map the Latitude field to y column and the Longitude field to the x column.
  15. Click Apply Updates.
