Add a parcel dataset with land and improvement values
Add a parcel dataset with land and improvement value fields. If you don’t have a dataset, you may be able to discover one in Open Data.
Often the relationship between two measurements is revealing. An interesting way to look at a community is to map the value of the land relative to the value of its improvements. In this map, brown areas indicate land that is worth more than the improvements on it. Areas in green show that improvements on those parcels are worth more than the land beneath them. Stronger colors indicate a bigger difference between land and improvement values. Clusters of same-color parcels showcase patterns.
