Style/Color-Code Data

This feature is only available with a paid Regrid account (Pro or Team). Click here to upgrade your account.

If you want to create a parcel map color coded based on data in your account (either survey data or imported data) you can do so by creating Style rules. Style rules will apply to your entire Project. You can change your Styles at any time.

Setting a Style rule

  • Open the project (or create a new one) that you'll be working in. Use the search bar or the breacrumbs up top to navigate to your area of interest, if you're not already there.

  • Click 'Style' on the left hand sidebar, then 'Add a Rule' to start setting your first style.

  • Click the dropdowns to choose your criteria. The first box (pictured below) is where you choose your data column (ie "Owner", or "Land Use", etc); the second you can choose your operator ("IS", "IS NOT", or "HAS ANY VALUE"); and the third, you can choose a specific value within the data column (ie "City of San Francisco", or "Residential", etc). image showing Regrid Property App with Style tool open and Owner field dropdown clicked

Each style rule you set can have a fill and a line color; you can also set these to 'none' if you choose. Click the line and fill boxes to set these as you wish.

  • When you've got these set, click "Apply". You should see the relevant parcels color on the map: below, you can see an example where we have chosen to highlight properties that are owned by "CITY OF IOWA CITY" as green. <img width="1204" alt="image showing Regrid Property App with Style tool open, Owner field selecting "City of Iowa City" and color-coded green src="">

  • You can repeat this process for as many style rules as you like.

Tips on working with the Style tool

Style rules are matched to parcels sequentially based on the top to bottom order in your Project's Style area. That means if you create a set of Style rules that includes two color codes, both of which match parcels on your Project, the parcels will be highlighted ONLY by the color rule you defined first. Any parcel with imported data not covered by a Style rule will show up in the "default" color, which you can also designate.


For example:

Say you have a parcel with the address 555 Fake Street that has two data fields:

  • Condition: Good
  • Occupancy: Vacant

If you go to the Style tab and set Condition = Good to color parcels in Green, and then set another rule to color Occupancy = Vacant parcels in Red, then the 555 Fake Street parcel will ONLY color in Green – it matches both rules, but the Condition rule is set first, so that's the color that will be applied.

If you plan to share your Project (See Share Your Project), you may want to check that your column headers and cell contents are easily comprehensible before importing the data.

If you want to search your data in a way that will show all properties that match BOTH Condition = Good AND Occupancy = Vacant, then skip to the Filter tool to learn about searching multiple criteria on
