Using the Feature Service

Regrid’s Esri-compatible Feature Service allows you to use Regrid’s seamless nationwide parcel layer in Esri tools.

Our Feature Service provides high-quality standardized nationwide parcel data with 152+ million parcel records and associated tax assessment information, covering over 99% of the US population.

We appreciate your feedback and questions at tech@regrid.com.

Supported Platforms

ArcGIS Pro

These steps will add Regrid’s seamless nationwide parcel layer to an ArcGIS Pro project. They were tested in ArcGIS Pro v2.9.0.

  1. Launch ArcGIS Pro Desktop on Windows

  2. Open a new or existing project.

  3. Ensure the project has a map. To create a new map, from the Insert tab, select New Map

  4. From the Map tab, select Add Data, and then select Data from Path

  5. Paste the following URL into the Path field, replacing <token> with your Regrid API token:

     https://fs.regrid.com/<token>/rest/services/premium/FeatureServer/0
    
  6. Click Add.

  7. Parcels should be rendered on a new layer in the map view. “Regrid Parcel Data” should appear in the Contents pane.

ArcGIS Online Map Viewer

  1. Browse to ArcGIS Online and sign in

  2. Select “Content” from the left nav

  3. Select “New Item”

  4. Select “URL”

  5. Fill in the Feature Service URL, replacing <token> with your Regrid API token.

    The Type field should auto populate with “ArcGIS Server web service”

     https://fs.regrid.com/<token>/rest/services/premium/FeatureServer/0
    
  6. Select Next and follow the prompts

  7. Update the title to a name of your choosing like, ‘parcels’

  8. Select “Open in map viewer” in the upper right, to view your layer in a map.

In existing maps, select the “Layers” tab on the left. Then, select the + button next to the Regrid Feature Service layer to add it to the map.

Using our feature layer in other ArcGIS tools and apps

  1. From a map view, with a layer already added to the map, select ‘Save and open’ from the left column, then ‘Save as’.

  2. Enter a Title and Summary

  3. Select “Save map”

ArcGIS API for JavaScript

We have a basic demo exercising ArcGIS API for Javascript.

  1. Save this index.html demo file to your computer

Save sdk-demo/index.html

  1. Log in to get an API key from ArcGIS at https://developers.arcgis.com/dashboard

  2. Replace REGRID_API_KEY in index.html with an API key from the Regrid dashboard. The URL where you will add the key looks like this:

    https://fs.regrid.com/REGRID_API_KEY/rest/services/premium/FeatureServer/0
    

Compatibility Matrix

The below matrix shows the Esri tools and products that our team has tested our feature service with for compatibility.

Please note that the Esri product and tools universe is vast and we will continue to update this matrix as we learn more and test more with their tools.

Esri Product Description Regrid Feature Service Supported
ArcGIS Pro Core desktop app used by customers Yes
ArcGIS Online (AGOL) Core web mapping application Yes
ArcGIS API for JS Build web apps with interactive user experiences Yes
ArcMap (ArcGIS Desktop) Legacy desktop GIS suite (being phased out by 2026) Yes

**While we are technically compatible with this tool, we do not use it with our Regrid Feature Service because our service is not intended to be used in public facing sites.

Best practices

Optimized fields

We have optimized queries on a set of commonly-used fields. Queries on other fields may be slower or fail to complete. If you are looking to do operations on fields not in this list, and queries are taking a long time to complete, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at tech@regrid.com.

Geo-bounding a query by state, county or zip code or other optimized field may improve performance on filter operations.

Zoom levels

We recommend zooming to a county level or closer (Esri zoom 9).

Different platforms may use different units for these zoom levels. Actual performance will vary based on the platform, hardware, density of parcels in the county, and other factors.

More information on zoom levels in Esri products is available here: developers.arcgis.com/documentation/…/zoom-levels-and-scale/.

Limit

There is a maximum result limit set at 2000. Complete results can be received by performing paginated requests per the GeoServices spec. Most Esri tools perform pagination on requests that involve fetching Regrid parcels.
