ABOUT THE DATA

 

Throughout this website we've worked hard to name all data sources used for identifying land ownership. Where we know the owner but do not have a clear source to publish, we have aimed to identify only the category of ownership. We are using all datasets mentioned in the coded-system below for non-commercial purposes, do not use the datasets for marketing and comply with all known laws/regulations including data protection.

If a data owner contacts us asking for us to take their dataset down we will do so. If a landowner believes that their parcel is identified incorrectly please contact us.

 

Land Parcel Boundary Data 

The primary dataset that this website uses for visualising parcels of ownership is the INSPIRE Index Polygons which has had an Open Government License (OGL) since 2020 (links to download the data and the OGL license). Nowhere on this website do we enable visitors to download this dataset and we do not visualise the links between INSPIRE I.D., Title Number and polygon boundaries. The polygons may have been simplified, data may be out of date; do not rely on this data. The conditions of use are linked here and below:
