HUNT Plat Coverage
We’re pleased to announce the release of our NEW HUNT Premium Plat Coverage Map! The Coverage Map tells you at a glance which states we provide data for in our HUNT Premium products and within each state, which counties include plat data. Due to differing state regulations and availability of data, every state and county displays different amounts of coverage. If your state or county makes the plat data available, we make every effort to include it in our maps and will continue to seek out sources of data for states that we don’t yet have full coverage for.
There are 4 different colors on our HUNT Premium Plat Coverage Map to represent different levels of plat coverage within our HUNT Premium line of map products:
- Our ‘HUNT Orange’ color indicates that we provide full coverage for a given county. This includes land owner names and private land boundaries.
- If a county is shaded ‘Brown’, this indicates that a county has partial plat coverage data. ‘Partial Coverage’ means that some areas of the county may be incomplete regarding either private land boundaries or private land owner names.
- ‘Dark Gray’ we only provide private land boundaries without land owner names & information. This may mean that the given county doesn’t make private land owner information readily available, or that we are currently seeking an acceptable source for the data.
- ‘Light Gray’ counties indicate that we don’t possess any private land data for the county. Most ‘White’ counties are located in states that we currently don’t offer HUNT Premium products for, but are being worked on for release in 2014.
What is 'Plat Coverage'?
The word ‘Plat’ is used to describe the division of a section of land. Plat maps have been used historically for land use planning and developing zoning regulations. There are different levels of detail depending on what plat map you are looking at. For example, a plat map may show a section of land divided into blocks depicting streets and alleyways with no private lots shown. Another plat map may show the same area in more detail and divide the blocks into different lots or parcels, often including the land owner’s name.
