The VT GIS Parcel Data Standard seeks to: 1. Define technical requirements for municipalities to utilize when creating or updating GIS parcel data. Separate levels of this standard will allow municipalities to pick a level suitable for procurement, budget, and resource considerations and ensure that high quality and reliable parcel information products are developed. This standard provides an extensible framework that serves as a foundation for production of supersets of the standard levels for particular municipal business needs.
2. Establish common data elements and ensure consistency between different municipal GIS parcel data sets to ensure that all delivered municipal GIS parcel datasets can be merged into a single statewide dataset without translation. The common data elements and data consistency provide a framework that yields efficient exchange of parcel data and parcel data aggregation.
