Descriptive nameTaxcoded Pima County Owned Parcels
File nameparcpima
Spatial domainPima County
Abstractparcpima displays those parcels within Pima County that are owned by Pima County government, and have a valid taxcode as assigned by the Assessor.
Known errors/qualifications**Since this is a coverage based layer, island polygons are included, and need to be filtered out for display/analysis, e.g. select where MAIL1 <> '

Ownership was inferred by analysis of the MAIL* (owner) fields of the Assessor's records and is only as accurate as this process.

This layer includes interior (island) polygons. Since the source format is coverage, both coverage, shapefile and geodatabase users must filter our these interior polygons using a filter such as PARCEL <> ' '

This layer does not include sub-surface mineral rights ownership that the County holds. See the layer MIN_PIMA for those areas.
